Happy π Day!

Today is 3/14, otherwise known as Pi Day (π ≈ 3.14159, rounded off is 3.14).  Because of the English equivalent homonym, this day is often celebrated by the consuming of pie.  So here is a pie for you :D

How much of “pi” do you know?  (I only know up to what I wrote up there, which is not much XD).

π is a mathematical constant, most frequently used for calculations involving circular objects (circles, spheres, etc).  It’s important stuff.

Pie is a type of baked dessert that usually has a dough or graham cracker crust and filling.  Usually the filling is made of some kind of fruit, but you can also have chocolate or other (richer) fillings.  There are also “savory” pies (note that I don’t understand the use of sweet versus savory, because technically those aren’t really in the same category, so I would just say sweet versus salty…) — for instance, pot pies.  Pot pies are probably the only kind of pie that I eat, and they’re very yummy XD  I especially like the Marie Callendar’s frozen ones… because I haven’t really had anything else XP

There is a place in Houston called House of Pies.  I’ve been there once with some friends, and it’s pretty good food — it’s basically a little diner.  My friend told me that they have specials for Pi Day, so if you’re in the area, you should check it out :)

For Pi Day, senpai and I are making some mini strawberry rhubarb pies.  I’ll update with pictures when they’re done.  This will be the second time I’ve ever made pie, so I don’t know how they’ll turn out XD  Rhubarb is kind of hard to find, though > <

Happy Pi Day!

Side Note:  For the romantically inclined, today is also White Day.  See the Valentine’s Day post for more details :3
