Celebrate Pi Day!
Happy 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939... Day!For once National Pi Day (3/14, Wednesday) will not go uncelebrated in the Wegener household! (Thanks to a timely reminder from Jonathan's online AP Calculus teacher!)
Here's the culinary plan:
Breakfast: Puff Pancake Pie (baked in my jumbo cast iron skilllet)
Lunch: Pizza pie
Supper: Chicken pot pie, or some variation, with peach pie for dessert
Of course, we'll have to measure the diameter and circumference of all the skillets, pans, and plates we use during the day, and calculate the ratio.
And no Pi Day would be complete without reading one of my favorite math storybooks: Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi, starring Sir Cumference, of course, aided by his son Radius and wife, Lady Di of Ameter.
