Happy Pi Day!!

So, it's pi day! I couldn't resist sharing the following article with you from the Huffington Post titled, Happy Pi Day! 6 Of Your Favorite Authors' Favorite Pie Recipes. In the article, I read the following:
Today, March 14, or 3/14, is National Pi Day. If you're up for it, you could celebrate by searching for the end of pi (hah!), or attempting to discern a meaningful pattern in the number's decimal representation. Alternatively, you could make or eat delicious pie.

It seems that most American authors who we think of as belonging to the canon had an affinity for the flakey, fruity dessert. Ernest Hemingway and Willa Cather had pie recipes of their own, and Jack Kerouac mused about its richness while romping across the Midwest. Ralph Waldo Emerson was known to enjoy eating pie for breakfast. When others refused to partake in his strange habit, he'd ask, perplexed, "What else is pie for?"
Check out which authors and their favorite pies are listed in this article, but clicking on the link above!! Celebrate Pi Day by baking and eating a pie!!
