Celebrate Pi (3.14) Day with pizza and peanut butter pie

When I was a high school English teacher one of my favorite days was March 14:  Pi Day.  The math teachers celebrated the day being 3.14, a mathematical constant, by doing several math activities, and of course eating pie...which made it a favorite day of mine.  

Curious about learning more about Pi?  Check out:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi

'Cause like I said, I taught English, and am a little more interested in the pie part of Pi Day.  

But, I do celebrate the Pi circle with my kids.  
We eat pizza pie and peanut butter pie. 

And, if it wasn't such a beautiful Spring day, we would have done some circle stuff inside.  Instead we just ran endless Pi circles around the neighborhood...and came in for pie.




Our favorite pie, my friend Angela's recipe:

Peanut Butter Pie
1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 c. powdered sugar
1/3 c. peanut butter
2 (9-oz.) container Cool Whip
1 graham cracker pie crust

Whip the cream cheese well, then mix in the powdered sugar.  Beat until creamy.  Add peanut butter and one container of Cool Whip.  Pour into pie crust and refrigerate.  Top with other container of Cool Whip before serving (we usually skip the second container of Cool Whip).

Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.”
