Pi Day, Friday, March 14th
You are invited to come celebrate Pi Day (3.14) on Friday, March 14th, from 7-10 PM. It's at my house (let me know if you don't know where it is).

For those who forgot their math, pi is the Greek letter that represents the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. I will be making several pies. You are welcome to bring a pie or other round food. I will also be singing a pi song. You are welcome to bring a pi song, poem, or story. Depending on how organized I feel, there may also be other pi-related activities.

Let me know if you plan on attending.

What a great idea! Will it go from 1:59 2 7?

sinboy suggests baking square pies.

Unfortunately, job schedules get in the way. Stupid jobs. I want to come into a bunch of money so that I can make it so none of my friends have to work.

Sorry, it has been proven that you cannot square the circle. Therefore, it is impossible to bake a square pie. Of course, if you all want to come out here and prove me wrong . . .

PS I had a square pie for dinner the other night :)

I plan on attending. Do you have a preference, regarding savory/meal pie versus dessert pie? My pie-making abilities are robust and varied!

Well, since I plan on making two (2) dessert pies, some balance would probably be appreciated by the attendees. I, of course, would not object to a houseful of dessert pies.

The motto at my house is, "We turn no pie away."

Perchance might you be aware of whether or not anyone is making anything I could eat, so that I might plan accordingly? (It's okay if you don't know.)

My current plan is to make a veggie pot pie and a jam torte.

Mmm.. hungry...

I actually decided to buy pie crusts this time instead of making them, so I'm not sure if they are vegan or not. I'll have to check. The lemon meringue pie will definitely not be vegan, however. The [NOT CLEARED FOR THIS INFORMATION] pie may be able to be made vegan, if the crust turns out to be vegan. I'm not sure about what anyone else is bringing. I can make some discreet inquiries.

Mmmm. Pot pie.

I got your email re pie. I hadn't settled on what to bring (or even if I would bring one, since it looks like you might have plenty.) And it's looking like my schedule this week isn't going to allow for both pie-making and keeping low-stressed, so lets just say the pie I bring is in the null set and is neither vegan nor not-vegan, which may make it vegan. In any case it would probably be the perfect pie for a breatharian.

I believe that the kosher frozen pie crusts are vegan as well as pareve.
If I remember correctly, the graham gracker crusts I've seen around have been dairy.

I wouldn't be able to make a kosher pie at my house if I had to bake the crust.

And, yes, I checked last night, and the pie crusts I have are dairy (not aggresively dairy, but enough to make them not vegan).

So I suppose that if someone else is admitting to prefab pie crust, I shouldn't feel too badly about using it as well...

Bitty's got an apple pie ready, but some of me wants to try making a dried-apple pie, which could easily be vegan.

Btw, you've made me want to go out and get lemon meringue pie now...
