Also the four-year anniversary of everything shutting down in Minneapolis. I was working that day, and was assigned to write about the opening of an actual pie shop that was very popular -- and since then has, sadly, closed.

Here's how the story started:

Quote
A line of people stretched down the sidewalk outside Pie & Mighty, a south Minneapolis pie shop, on Saturday, its opening day. It happened to be Pi Day, the annual celebration of the mathematical constant, pi (whose first three digits, 3, 1 and 4, form the date March 14), which many people observe by eating the titular baked dessert.

The timing of the opening was sheer coincidence, said co-owner Rachel Swan. The shop's license to operate had just been issued the day before.

"It's perfect timing," Swan said.

Well, kind of ? if you don't count the state of emergency Gov. Tim Walz declared Friday in response to COVID-19. In an effort to slow the virus' spread, officials advised canceling any gathering of 250 or more people. Museums, theaters, courtrooms, sporting events and other organizations around the metro area closed. Some large churches told parishioners to stay home on Sunday and watch services via livestream.

Out of curiosity I googled the people mentioned in the story who were waiting in line to buy pie. All still seem to be alive. Some people in the line might have died of COVID, though (not necessarily from being in the pie line).

Today, 3-14, is Pi Day! How will you celebrate?

I'm thinking about making a shepherd's pie. That brings Pi and Brokeback together!

The next day to look forward to is April 11.   8)

No recipes here.  However, I've been invited to a St. Patrick's Eve dinner, and I was asked to bring desserts.

I have 24 cupcakes, the images are below, with the flavors underneath the pics.






Top row:  chocolate rage
2nd row:  vanilla riot
3rd row:  chocolate cream filled
4th row:  red velvet

Wow, those are next level cupcakes!

I like the ones decorated like St. Patrick's Hostess cupcakes.

Jack's father-in-law was wrong: we DO eat with our eyes. Those are delicious!
