Mathematics. Not my strongest subject, so the fact that there is a whole day devoted to an irrational number shouldn’t excite me. But, since it involves pie, I’m all in!
Over 25 years ago, a physicist, Larry Shaw, at the Exploratorium at the San Francisco Science Museum, noticed that March 14 (3/14), was the first 3 digits of pi, he ordered pies for everyone and a new holiday was born! There’s even a website!
If you are celebrating Pi Day this year, try one of these Gr8 recipes…
Our first pie, of course, is an All-American Apple Pie; this is a must! Kyle’s version is easy as, well…pie!Vince’s favorite pie is Key Lime. It reminds him of his grandmother.
