Oh, I do love baking pies….learned most of my skills from my mother who could make cloud-like fluffy meringue using just the old manual hand-cranked egg beater. I use an electric one though.
1. Ice Cream pie with chocolate crust
2. Lemon meringue and Lime meringue pies
3. Individual size Banana Pudding
4. Individual size Apple pies
But today 3/14/23 isn’t Pie Day….it’s the other one- the math one: pi, whose digits are usually shortened to 3.14.
I’m bringing up pi today because I recently got to use it to determine the capacity of an old Delphos metal fuel can from my dad’s shed.
I learned it is a 2 gallon can by using this equation: “volume = pi x radius squared x height”.
Math was my least favorite subject in school so when this formula gave me the answer I was looking for, my head must have swelled a size or two. ;^)
Anyway you want your pie/pi, it’s pi’s special day today. Enjoy both varieties!
