Pi or Pie or 3.14

March 14th is sometimes celebrated among Math fans and self-proclaimed nerds as a day honoring Pi.

The number π (/p/) is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and is approximately equal to 3.14159.  (see Wikipedia for more on Pi.  It really is interesting.)

I have possibly/probably the least math knowledge of anyone in my immediate family, but I love the Pie aspect of Pi Day, so last night I took the opportunity to whip up a pumpkin pie, probably one of the easiest pies in the world to make, and one of my favorite to eat.  Last December I was lucky enough to find 15 oz cans of Libby's Pumpkin on sale for half price, so of course I bought a few.  This is just the right size can of pumpkin to make one pumpkin pie, and since there are only four of us living at home right now, this was just perfect.  Gotta love Pi day and Pumpkin Pie!
