March 14, 2015 – National Pi(e) Day

Special things are happening today in different parts of the country.

At 9:26 a.m., high school seniors will find out if they got accepted into The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  Romantic couples, seeking a significant wedding date, can tie the knot in Vegas for $314.15 … and celebrate with apple pie. And in San Francisco, there will be a pizza pie tossing.

Why?  Because today is National Pi Day, a holiday originated in San Francisco.  Yes, today we celebrate that number 3.14…(926 are part of the equation hence the 9:26 a.m.) Take advantage because we won’t see this again for another 100 years or so.

But a lot of people are celebrating with a different pie.

I would love to tell you I made a delicious pie today to celebrate.  I didn’t.  I’ve been doing prep work for a dinner party tonight.  But if I would have made a pie, it would be a French Silk Pie.  What else would a chocoholic eat but a chocolate pie?

There’s a whole story I could share about this pie.  But I’ll save it for the next time I make it.  What I will tell you is there’s a reason it’s called silk.  The flavor is decadently rich…but the texture is beyond creamy.  It IS SILK.  Smooth, melt-across-your-tongue chocolate bliss.

I was very excited to see the recipe posted this week from Gimme Some Oven.  Ali is a local KC blogger with interests in food, DIY projects and basically life in general.  Very grateful she has posted this recipe.

So I hope you have a chance to make this recipe today, if not, then soon.  Now I gotta get back to my prep work.  And I will probably sharing pictures and recipes from my friend A. Rae’s dinner party soon.
