Today is supposed to be the perfect "Pi" day....3-14-15. Math lovers everywhere are rejoicing in honor of this once-in-a-lifetime event.
Me? I prefer to celebrate the other "pie"... the round one that we usually eat for dessert. (I am an English major, not a math major, after all.)
Growing up, the one dessert I always remember is my mom's Lemon Meringue Pie. As a kid, I would never eat the meringue because I thought it was just gross to put eggs on top of your dessert. The sweet and tangy lemony filling was quite heavenly though. I remember even sneaking a piece for breakfast every once in awhile.
One year for St. Patrick's Day, she made her Lemon Meringue Pie, but added green food coloring to the filling and the meringue. It didn't look very pretty, but it still tasted the divine!
I'm hoping that when I go to mom's for dinner on Sunday, there will be a Lemon Meringue Pie waiting for dessert.
It doesn't even matter if it is green.
