Pi Day!

19 Mar

So, I am back from Sudan and working for a caterer in Atlanta. We’ll see if they require my pie skills in the future… they already made tons of delicious empanadas last week! In the meantime, here’s a quick update of the pies made for Pi Day posted on Neatorama.


However, some of those are repeats from last year, as is thisĀ Pi-rate ship pie, which really takes the cake!

Baked and photographed by Susan S of Diamonds for Dessert. Adorable!

It’s an apple pie, in case you were interested, but I think a more apt filling would be salted beef and potatoes in ale…

I wish I had actually remembered it was pi day before the evening, when I was reminded by Young Katie. Otherwise I could have posted this link from Illinois Science featuring Chicago restaurants with pie specials.

With the family on diet, it’s unlikely I’ll be baking pies in the near future. However, I saw an ad for KFC’s new chicken pot pies, and boy, if that isn’t a heart attack in a tin… must try nomnomnom. I rarely eat fast food, but if I can sneak away from dietland I will post a report.

Having made both, I completely disagree. But it’s cute anyway.

No pie today, the pies have gone away

Sadly, there was no Pie Night tonight, as I was attending my friend Alex’s gig (he’s in a band called Andy and the Prostitutes who are really good and play about once a month). Instead, I present to you a picture of the beautiful apple and pear pies that Kathryn B made last week. They were absolutely delicious – she made all the crust herself (and also contributed crust to the big pie). They also looked absolutely perfect.

I really can’t comment on how she made them – I know it involved peeled and sliced fruits, flour, sugar, and cinnamon – but that is all.
