It's Pi Day: Eat Pie for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert
Before you say anything, we're completely aware that Pi Day (3/14) celebrates pi, the mathematical ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter (3.14), and not pie, the pastry.
Then again, what better food to enjoy on a day like this? Pies are circular and delicious, and that's good enough for us. It's also good enough for our foodie friends, as many of them have agreed to let us share their (p)ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert pies.

Dinner - Turkey Shepherd's Pie
Liren Baker, aka The Kitchen Confidante, developed her recipe for Day-After Turkey Shepherd's Pie when she found herself with an abundance of leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. But a meal like this is too special to be an afterthought, so make it for tonight's Pi Day dinner. Learn Liren's recipe here.
Dessert - Irish Banana Cream Pie
Cap your day off with the ultimate Pi Day dessert: an Irish Banana Cream Pie invented by Aimee Shugarman of Shugary Sweets. It's perfect for three reasons: first off, St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner; second, National Banana Cream Pie Day was less than two weeks ago on March 2; and third, it's pie. Learn the recipe for this boozy treat here.
