A year ago, if you told me I’d be celebrating Pi day, I would have said, “Um, excuse me? Isn’t that something to do with math? And why would I celebrate that?”I mean, I know what Pi is.
Well, I know it’s a number, anyway. And that it isn’t a whole number. I remember learning about it in my high school math class. Although I couldn’t tell you which math class.
But for the life of me, I can’t tell you what it’s purpose is and, to be honest, I don’t really care.
By now you can probably guess that I’m no math genius. Nope. Never have been. Never will be. Math was actually my worst subject.
I was more of an English girl. Except when it came to reading. I wasn’t into it so much back then but I digress.
As it turns out, the number Pi is 3.14, which, for party-day purposes, equates to 3/14 or March 14th. You get the idea. Do you know what that means? It means that today is party day!
To celebrate, I made you a Pineapple Cream Pie.
Not just any pineapple cream pie, my mother-in-law’s recipe. But, I changed it up a bit.
Just in case you want to make one later, and I know you will, here’s the recipe.
Worried about the fabulous filling being poured into an over-worked, no-longer-flaky, tough crust? No worries! My Easy Foolproof Pie Crust recipe comes out perfect every time.
