                    1. Look we can do lamb, chili, tartare, blue foods, etc. in April, or May, or June...

                      But there's only ONE 3/14, dammit!

                      PIE, I say!!!

                        Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

                        Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

                          Now to the other kind of national pie day: Which pie should you choose for your National Pie Day party? The pie-sibilities are endless! Will it be one of the 231 varieties of apple pie, the favorite of 36 million Americans? Perhaps pumpkin pie, which was first introduced to the holiday table at the pilgrim's second Thanksgiving in 1623? Or maybe a pecan pie, which is the third most popular choice in our nation of pie lovers?

                          Well, lucky for us we don't live in the Kingdom of J. L.......

                          LAMB

                          You can eat pie anyway of any month, you don't have to save it for one day of one month......

                          1. re: Dirtywextraolives

                            I think J.L. should get docked for voting twice.

                            Not that that's really going to matter much ... even with just 1% of the precincts reporting.

                                  Stumping for votes, that's all... (makes the famous Bill Clinton thumb gesture) :-)

                                    Then you need to do it right and visit Hsi Lai Temple ...

                                    Frito pie? not really a pie at all!?!?

                                      1. I can see the future: PIE

                                        1. PIE

                                          Now, for those of you who voted for lamb, I will support that choice in April. But I agree with the clear (so far) majority, it's gotta be pie for pi, 3/14.

                                                    1. re: kevin

                                                      CAPS KEVIN CAPS!!

                                                      Though it's a lost cause any way.... Frickin' pie...lame.

                                                      We'll just have to go out for tartare ourselves....

                                                      1. re: Dirtywextraolives

                                                        Damn. Ok. I shoulda voted more often.

                                                        TARTARE

                                                          Peace offering for DWEO: I will vote lamb next month for sure.

                                                          1. re: J.L.

                                                            Thanks, but I will probably have moved on to other things by next month.....like SHELLFISH....{{sigh}}

                                                            1. re: Dirtywextraolives

                                                              Then as a further gesture of support: I will also vote for whatever tickles your fancy next month. :-)
