Are you on Team Cake or Team Pie?
At our house, it’s not even a close call: PIE WINS – by a landslide. There are just so many reasons pies are superior to cakes. And so, Pi Day every March 14 at the Kelly house is a thing.
This Saturday is an EPIC Pi Day – because it will be 03-14-15 – the first five letters of Pi – and the numbers continue at random into infinity – is the number that represents the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the radius of that circle.
People celebrate Pi Day around the U.S. and around the world with pie-eating, pie-throwing, even with pi-recitation competitions, where people recite digits of pi from memory. I even read a suggestion that to celebrate this Saturday, you should run 3.14 miles. I choose to eat pie instead!
But this Pi Day is a once-in-a-century celebration. At 9:26:53 a.m. on Saturday, this will happen:
That’s right – 10 digits of pi recreated in history.
An historic day deserves a spectacular pie, I say. Hence this Mango Cream Pie. Think Fresh Strawberry Pie, only with mangoes. I just love mangoes, and could eat them every single day. Especially in pie form.
Happy Pi Day all!
