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.

We love pie and pi at permies! Happy Pi Day!



Get more slices at Permaculture Inner Elite (or if you already have some, check how much you have at permies pie console/list).

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

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 :)

Couple of weeks to pi day, what are you going to make? I canned down some blueberry pie filling that I think will be involved with cheesecake!

Oooh, pi day!!
I was going to check my winter squash collection, I have been canning up what is left, as it's stored badly and will be exposed to heat soon. I'll pick one to make pie!!! :D

This pie day is actually the math  'pi' (3.14), not pie. Purely a play on words, enjoyed largely by numbers people.

Canada does the date day, month year. So 31-4-21 == 31 of April, 2021  
THAT means we can have TWO pi days!!! WOOT!

I LOVE celebrating with neighbors!! I'd **completely** forgotten about the difference in how we write the dates, lol! I thought how awesome Canada must be, to have an actual holiday dedicated to pie!! Lol!

It's a long-standing joke in literature and crime fiction that Americans write the date backwards.
