Happy Pi Day!

It's 3/14. Or, as geeks and nerds everywhere know it, Pi day! (You know, 3.14, that number/symbol that you use when finding the circumference or area of a circle? Am I the only geometry dork around here??) And how do foodie geeks like to celebrate Pi day? By making pie of course!
Except... I didn't make pie. Because I wasn't paying attention to the calendar, and was not properly prepared. In case you don't know me well, the most important holiday for me in March (or really, all year) is St. Patrick's Day. And I was so focused on all things Irish, that I didn't even realize today was the 14th until Google reminded me. 
Now on any other weekend, making a pie spur of the moment wouldn't even cause me to blink. I've always got the ingredients on hand to whip up some kind of pie (and I know for a fact I have a homemade mini pie crust in my freezer all ready to go right now). But I'm not home. I'm not in Philadelphia at all. I'm visiting Scranton for Parade Day (which, if you don't know the joys of Parade Day, deserves an entirely different post to fully explain). 
So I'm staying at my mom's. And... well... let's just say, my mom's not much of a baker. No butter. Not enough flour. She's lucky she has a pie plate, let alone a pastry cutter. Baking at my mom's house is about as fun as a trip to the dentist. The thought of it makes me a little nauseated to be quite honest. But it's Pi Day! And pies are my specialty. What kind of pie baroness would I be if I didn't do SOMETHING for Pi Day? 
So, I decided to give you all a little pie porn. These are all pies I've made in the past. There's berry pies (my favorite), sweet potato pies, strawberry rhubarb pies, chocolate pies, some are vegan, some are not, but all of them are DELICIOUS. (Just ask my friends, I swear.) And I promise that soon, very soon, I will make a pie and share the details with all of you. Until then, just try to keep from drooling on your keyboard.
