Don’t Be Irrational – It’s Pi Day

According to Wikipedia, “Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14, (3/14 in the month/day date format since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π..” Today we celebrate Pi to the 10th digit so 3.141592653 which translates to 3/14/15 9:26:53. So in celebration of the one time in the century that we experience Pi to 10 digits I am commemorating the day with the easiest pie in the world and one of Humbly’s favorites.

I got the recipe for this pie from Plain Chicken and I made it in the time that it took me to make a frozen pizza. It only has 4 ingredients and that includes the crust. I gathered my ingredients and started preheating the oven for the frozen pizza.

First zest 2 lemons into a bowl. This one is one of the Multicolor Bamboo Fiber Bowls which is beautiful and light.

Then take the lemons and roll them under your palm against the counter this is supposed to help you get more juice out of the lemons when you squeeze it. I don’t know if it works or not but I always do it.

Then I used my Citrus Press, one of my very favorite tools, to juice the lemons. Two lemons makes about 1/2 a cup of juice.

Plop in the lemon juice, a can of condensed milk and a 8 ounce tub of whipped topping, and stir.
