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.
