Tomorrow is March 14 … 3/14 … So naturally it’s Pi Day. And to take it down to six significant figures, the tradition has become to take a break at 1: 59 for a slice of pie.
So natch I should include a pie recipe right here … only somewhere in the transition from Blogger to WordPress and/or when my hard-drive fried, I lost my pix my from attempt to recreate my Great-Grandma’s world famous apple pie.
So, I’m going to tear through my back-up drive, which seems to be unplugged and therefore about as much help in backing things up as a door knob, yoga mat, or Molly the Wonder Dog. And since I more than likely won’t find anything, the apple pie will have to be a priority in the near future.
Until then …
How about some Strawberry-Rhubarb? (Not quite in season, so save it for later.)
Bourbon Sweet-Potato? (Always in season!)
And Pi Day is never complete without a math puzzle, so here ya go: If you bake a pie in a 9 inch pan, then cut the pie into eight equal slices, what is the arc length of each slice’s crust?
