Pi(e) Day, March 14 as in Pi 3.14

19 Feb

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie

A young friend was visiting from Boston the other day. She told me about Pi(e) day. Some of her friends in the Boston area have started a new thing of eating pie on March 14. You might ask why March 14, well I’m glad you asked, even if you didn’t, because you don’t care or that you have already figured it out. March 14 because in mathematics Pi is 3.14. It is just a natural progression if you think this way to 3/14 the date.
They have a get together and everyone who knows how to bake a pie brings one. I guess if you can’t bake and don’t have a significant other who can bake like I do then you might have to buy one. You get extra credit if your pie is completely eaten. You even get a bigger bonus if it is the first pie gone, oh and no eating your own pie unless it is really good or you happen to really love it.
Fore thought and planning should go in to choosing what pie to make. If at all possible all the pies should be different. I personally have a sweet tooth and having grown up in the south I love pecan pie. I love the roasted pecans, the rest of the filling is good also but it is the pecans that get me. I’m trying to find someone who makes it with very little filling and a whole lot more pecans. But I digress. There are so many great pies out there that it would be easy to have every one of your friends make a different pie. Just think of all the kinds of pie there is. If you say I can only think of a few kinds of pie! Fear not Wikipedia® list well over a hundred kinds of pie. Some are hot pies some are cold pies, some are main course and some desert. Whatever kind of pie you want to make will qualify for pie day. Even mud pies but I wouldn’t recommend eating those.
So plan for Pi(e) day March 14. The following was posted on Fatcyclist blog:

As long as you are talking dates don’t forget Pie day. It will be held in every home in the world this year. So mark your calender for March 14 (3.14 get it Pi day). Everyone should eat pie on Pi day.

@JeffBike Very Good! Maybe we could get Fatty to move the 100MoN to March 14th in the future. It would be so Fatty.

Pi(e) day should be the nexus of our Fatty family get together. I think we should really start thinking seriously about it (though admittedly it’s too late for this year to plan. We see Fatty is extremely busy, so maybe 2013 we set the bar and hold it, and if he can come, he can come, and then it can become an annual event 2014. I super love the idea. Hanging out with you all has been some of my favorite times ever.
Stay tuned on this developing story…
