Happy Pi Day!

For all of you math lovers out there or for those with children taking math classes, I am sure you are celebrating PI day today. Who doesn't love PI day? Good ole 3.14  Okay, Okay ----- in actuality, I did NOT realize today was "PI" day.  I had no idea.  I went through the whole day totally unaware that today was such a grand occasion. A day to be celebrated. I thought it was March 14th and nothing more but alas, I was wrong. My younger daughter also failed to realize that today was PI day. She also was under the misconception that today was merely March 14th but as soon as she got to her AP Calculus class, she realized the error of her ways.  Her math professor was quick to point out that today was indeed National PI day and he was bitterly disappointed that no one brought festive treats in order to celebrate such an auspicious occasion.  Evidently none of the students realized the magnitude of the date and were then forced to *gasp* do MATH for the entire class.  The teacher did mention that he could perhaps celebrate PI day tomorrow if anyone was up to the task.  So as soon as my daughter came home from school, she started baking.  She decided to make a PI pie.  She got the dough all ready and the apples all peeled and sliced and proceeded to make a delicious apple PI pie.  She even cut out the PI symbol on the top crust. Mr. Yesteryear Acres came in the kitchen in the midst of the baking and said he was crushed that she didn't think to celebrate PI day with him.  He didn't know how he could go on with the day knowing that he was all alone with no celebratory feasting. He left looking forlorn and saddened so of course my daughter proceeded to make a second PI pie just for him.  His face lit up like Christmas morning when he smelled the apple PI pies baking and counted TWO pies in the oven.  So tonight we celebrated PI day.  I made marinated grilled pork chops, caramelized roasted sweet potatoes and baby asparagus for dinner and for dessert ......Apple PI pie.  We each got 3.14ths of a slice of pie. It was PI PERFECT!
