I have been around the interwebs for my fair share of “pi days”* and have seen a lot of awesome pies created for the day. I’ve even made my own pies on that day, because that’s what you’re supposed to do, right?
But this one takes the cake (er, pie?) for the best pi-related one. It goes above and beyond just putting the pi numbers on top and instead, fills the center with pie shaped apple slices, too. How fun would that be to slice into after already being impressed that there are numbers on top and expecting a regular pie inside?
From what I hear, A Periodic Table blogger Shannon is pretty darn good cook, too, and she’s got a lot of tips for how to make your own pie taste amazing, so I’m pretty sure this not only looks awesome, but would taste awesome, too. Usually when I see creations like this, I want to make my own and it inspires me to do something similar or related somehow, so it’s not an exact copy. I have no idea how I could possibly improve this one, though, so I’m just going to leave it to her. <3
*March 14 is considered “Pi Day” because the first 3 numbers of ‘pi’ are 3.14….which looks like the date “3-14” or “March 14.” Just wait for the celebration in a few years when it’s 3.1415….
Unfortunately, you don’t usually get more than one snack offered during a flight, so making these snacks on a regular flight is unlikely. If you ever get access to multiple snacks, though, then make yourself a fun treat! I’m sure you could create more if you buy those ‘snack pack’ boxes they offer, but then you might as well bring your own snacks instead of paying for them anyway.
I’m sure there’s a pun in here about them being tem-purr-a….
The site I originally saw this on called them “sweet little tempura kitties,” but I actually find them a little creepy.
After all, why are we putting cat heads on shrimp? Is there something here that I’m missing? I love the rice cats and have made my own even, but to put them on shrimp? I’m not sure even I would do that.
Well I might *now,* but I wouldn’t have before….
