Approximately 3.14 Reasons to Eat Pie

Today, March 14 (written as 3/14 or sometimes 3.14 in this part of the world) is Pi Day, a celebration of everyone's favorite irrational number, π. Now, I recognize that Pi and pie are homophones and not the same word. But, it is the case that the ratio of a pie's circumference to its diameter is Pi. To this dessert blogger, that's as good a reason as any to seek out a slice of pie. Our family already finished off a fabulous apple crumb pie that my wife made over the weekend, so we'll have to find another source today. We might go over to Redbones, a local southern-style barbecue joint, which has a very decent pecan pie. How will you be celebrating Pi Day?
