OK, I’m about to come out of the closet: I am a full-on nerd girl. I am a grown woman who owns this Sherlock pillow (it’s great, right?) and have spent many a Saturday afternoon binge watching Dr. Who (I can feel my husband cringing as I write those words).
I’m also a self-proclaimed foodie. My travel destinations are chosen based on local cuisine and I faithfully work out each week so that I can eat that cheeseburger (with a craft beer, of course) and still fit in my jeans. I am food driven.
So, the fact that there is a national holiday that combines math (be still my geek loving heart) and pie (OMG), is in my mind, genius. In fact, today I’m going to share with you three geek forward food obsessed ways to get the most out of 3.14.
Make a Pi Pie
The most obvious way to celebrate Pi Day is to make a pie (duh!) and what better way to do that than in this Pi (pie) dish. Need a recipe to go in that pan? I would suggest this Triple Berry Pie recipe from Tastes Better from Scratch. It was pinned over 2,500 times on Pinterest. In our virtual recipe world that’s as good as a Michelin star rating.
Devour These Pi Cookies
If pie is not your thing (we can’t be friends, BTW), cookies are an excellent fallback. These three ingredient shortbread cookies from Chew Out Loud are as easy to make as they are delicious. Of course, you’re going to want to use this Pi Cookie Cutter.
Let’s be honest, here in the US holidays and drinking go together like PB&J. True, Pi Day is inspired by a mathematical theorem, but it's still a reason to party - which means it’s time to get your mixology on. We’ve been busy pinning our favorite pie inspired cocktails for you, like this Sparkling Apple Pie Cocktail recipe from The Kitchen is my Playground.
Prefer your pie on the rocks? Fabulous! Then start shaking this Apple Pie on the Rocks cocktail by Gal on a Mission. Ready to geekify your cocktail? Serve it in this Pi Theorem Rocks Glass and add these Pi shaped ice cubes.
So there you have it - three delicious ways to celebrate Pi Day. Hungry (see what I did there?) for more Pi Day paraphernalia? Shop the complete Pi Day collection now.
