Happy Pi Day!

Pi vs. Pie

It’s March 14. Otherwise known as Pi Day!

Finally, a real holiday for us math nerds. Granted, I can’t recite pi past 3.14 myself, but as a kid I used to be able to go out to maybe 7 or 8 decimal points.

There are loads of ways for you to celebrate Pi Day so I thought I’d share a few with you. Dig in!

Go rent Life of Pi and watch a boy and a tiger go on a romantic boat ride together. Or something like that. You can even go behind the scenes of the movie as you learn about Pi’s Epic Journey.



Make or order a Pizza Pie! Pepperoni. Sausage. Mushrooms. Peppers and Onions. You name it! Just don’t put olives or anchovies on. Blech!

Or at the very least, get your own Pizza Pi Cutter!

Go buy or rent Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory so you can see Violet turn “violet” just like a blueberry pie!

Bake yourself a nummy pie like one of these scrumptious-looking treats!

  1. Are there 314 slices of pepperoni on that pizza? That would be too much. How about 314 thin slices of apple for a pie? I could go for an apple tart. Could there be some simple 314 recipes, like the pound cake simple ratios?
