Pi DayWednesday, March 14, 2007
Today is Pi Day - it's 3.14 on the calendar, which someone decided would be perfect to celebrate π.
I love any kind of holiday, so when I found it last year on Wikipedia (you can type dates into Wikipedia and it will show holidays from all over the world that are being celebrated), I decided to do what other people do that day...make a pie (great excuse, right!?).
Last year, I made Pawley's Island Pie - it's one of Av's favorites:
I'm not sure what I'll make later today - there's always lots of good inspiration on the 'Pie Club' Flickr group I'm in, though!
Marie: my MIL says that she got that plate from The Wireless Catalog - what a weird catalog!! - but I just looked and I don't see it...you might want to give them a call (800.669.5225) and see if they still carry it - it's their item # VC4603.
