Everyday should be Pi day

Sjoblom Blueberry Best Pie

Sjoblom Blueberry Best Pie

Since when did Pi day become such a big deal?  We know –ever since Petsy’s Pie over in Sommerville started this great contest:

Making preparations for π day!

Posted on March 6, 2013 by petsipies

Put your thinking caps on!  3.14 @ 1:59 we will start the pi, pie prizes at our Beacon Street location. If you can recite 10 digits of pi we’ll reward you with a cutie pie and a pi sticker. If you know 100 digits the prize is a gift certificate for a large pie, if you are a master of pi and can recite 314 digits, you’ll win our grand pie prize of a pie per season gift certificate!

We would like to take a moment now and appreciate our elementary school teachers for making us memorize the first ten digits of pi, which is etched in out memories forever.  3.141592654.  This is an example of how math is implemented in real life.  Memorize the pi in exchange for a pie.

If you need an extra recipe on top of all the tweets and blog posts for great pies that took place today, take a look at our blueberry pie.  We think you’ll like it.

Happy Pi Day!  and FYI, tomorrow is World Contact Day…Happy Weekend!

Tea Cup Jewelry for the Birthday Girl

This past weekend Anne and I celebrated Anne’s big birthday over some freshly squeezed cocktail mixers, delicious soup made by the bday girl, and homemade bread.  Photos and recipes soon to follow.  It was a  night filled with a lot of food, laughter, and as usual, good tea.  Anne is all about the tea.  Walk through her door and it’s the first and last thing she will offer you –guaranteed.  For her birthday I found adorable tea jewelry and couldn’t resist.  They are made by Layla Amber, an artist based in England, and you can buy some of her tea party collection over at her etsy site here.  Any tea lovers out there?  If you’re one of them I’m sure you can appreciate this.  Happy Birthday Anne!
