The moose at coderanch.com is decked out like Einstein and with pi-flies, and even the permies logos here are joining in the fun.





Any other pi stuff to share today?

I did chuckle at that cartoon, Tom - fun!

Brilliant videos, Craig! Very cool in the one that they responded to feedback and folks' desire to donate all those pies. I didn't pop over to YouTube to read the comments, but of course was thinking that even if they were past the pull date, chickens, pigs or even compost critters would have scarfed them up.

Nice of your workplace to do pie at pi-time, Eric.

Paul was traveling yesterday and sooo busy that I don't know if he ate pie! (Though he had loads of pie last week - 2 homemade from some awfully cool permies and 2 purchased from a local bakery.)

Whoa! 15 pies! That's awesome, Tyler! That spread reminds me of a graduation party Paul attended with me where he and my son turned it into a pie eating contest. I think Paul ate 11 pieces of pie that day for the win.

Do you think they did this by laser caramelization?  This could be the reason to push me over the edge to buying a laser cutter!!!  (ummm....deliciousness by laser)

By the way....they made that by dividing the circumference of a pumpkin by its diameter!  (forgive me for spilling outside of the Jokes thread :) )

I think this is a beautiful sweet potato pie (especially since it uses purple sweet potatoes) for Pie Day!

Dave Burton: look up a recipe for pumpkin cheesecake that ends up in layers, find one you like, and use the purple sweet potato pie filling instead of pumpkin :) Makes LOVELY pies!!
My brother in law who hates all vegetables said "you RUINED the cheesecake!"  I didn't think so at all, it was yummy! :9

Greg: I cannot prove it, but I'd say that pie with Pi on it is photoshopped.
Laser art on sweet items doesn't look like that, but a good overlay with dithering does.
I'm a cook, my favorite ex does lasers (including on food) and I do computer graphics (as well as hand graphics.) If I saw the original of that picture I might have a different opinion, but from what I see in that shot, it's probably photoshop.
:D
Looks tasty though :D

Rats Pearl....looking at it again I have to agree.  I was so ready to believe!

Greg: Ha! I thought I made it up years ago, when I had purple sweet potatoes growing :)
My train of thought was pumpkin pie = sweet potato pie recipe-wise, and pumpkin cheesecake is one of my favorites, not a hard leap to purple sweet potato cheesecake :)

Last pie I made, for my grandma's birthday in January. She died 20 or so years ago. Me and mom had her a party this year :)
I do not use recipes when I cook, and all the things I cook are different, I don't repeat recipes. This was a lemon cream pie, with coconut milk, fresh lemons, honey, anise, and ginger. It was excellent :)

Thank you! We figured grandma was pleased, she always loved my cooking and influenced a LOT of it.

Happy Pi Day!!
Guess we are having pie tonight! YAY!
Excellent shirt, Greg Martin! If I wore shirts like that I'd want one. I don't wear them though.
