Head's up, y'all! Pi Day is Thursday, March 14 (3/14). Are you planning to make a pie? If yes, what kind?

I'm going to make a chicken pot pie with homemade crust made with lard :yum:

I was thinking of some kind of meat pie, too. I've never made on, and I'm a bit intimidated. If I decide to make one, I better have the pizza delivery number ready, for a back-up pizza "pie."

I have some nice trimmings of beef filet in the freezer I've been saving. A gourmet beef and mushroom pie sounds like a plan! Casey, I'll be using store bought rolled up refrigerated pie crusts. Easy peasy.

Stirling's mum gave us a store bought apple pie. It's been waiting in the freezer for pi day. We have had this kind at his mum's house before and it is delish.

What do you mean with Pi day? :O Is it an international stablished day for honouring the Pie?


I see all of you have been preparing for this, it intrigues me.

In the US the 14th of March is abbreviated as 3-14, sort of like pi, 3.14. So, it's a kind of a joke, because pi and pie are pronounced the same.

A lot of people celebrate it, but there is nothing "official" about it. It's just an excuse to eat pie. ;)

Pi day works in countries that use the MDY format - United States, Philippines, Federated States of Micronesia, and Marshall Islands. For those that use a different date format, you are welcome to join us in celebrating Pi day (but nobody should need an excuse to enjoy some Pi!).

Only if they pronounce their word for pie and pi the same way. :-p

Ah, it wouldn't work in Yurrip, since you abbreviate days as day/month/year, so March 14th is 14/3/2019.

Here in Merca, tomorrow is 3/14/2019. The definition of Pi (short version) is 3.14. Therefore, Pi day, which some of the more nerdy folks here celebrate by eating pie.

It's that time of year once more!
:chef:
What kind and/or flavorings will you be making?

I think that I'll be making both Hand Pies as well
as a Crostata and maybe even a Tart ... that's a pie, right?

3/14/21 is a month and a half away. I don't plan anything that far in advance!
