No, Pi Day. That’s Monday, March 14th–or 3.14. Even better, this year is Super Pi Day, since the value of pi=3.14159…, which rounds to 3.14(.)16!!! Hey, this is almost as fun as Talk Like a Pirate Day!
In honor of Pi Day, Penzey’s Spice is giving away free Pie Spice if you order before that date, using coupon code 10737c on the order form (with a minimum order of, I think, $5?). (And yes, I found this code easily available online, so I don’t feel bad repeating it here “for free.”) Besides using it in fruit pies, I sprinkle it over whipped cream that I’ve put on whatever dessert–pudding, tapioca, cake, etc. And hot cocoa, too. Yum. And Penzey’s spices are good quality, and gluten free (unfortunately that can’t be said about all spices and spice mixes. Flour is cheap; cheaper than many herbs and spices…sigh).
I’ll be making a pie in honor of Pi Day. I can’t decide between blueberry (from the last of last summer’s frozen berries), a buttermilk pie (which I’ve never made before, but hey, I live in the south now…), or a lemon pie (because, mmmmmmm lemon). Advice?
And how about you? Are you making a pie, or something pie-like, in honor of this most distinguished Super Pie Day?
