PI day pie from Our Table Cooperative

Salted Honey Pie from Our Table Cooperative, one of many delicious pies you can celebrate Pi Day with. 

Happy Pi Day! 

Today is the day we "celebrate" the monumental contribution to mathematics first conceived of by William Jones, and used to find some measurement with a circle. Honestly I wasn't very good at math 20 years ago, I remember even less of it now. But I do know Pi sounds like "pie", and one is used to measure circles and pies are circular when you make them right, so that's enough of a relationship in my book to warrant eating some pie!

One place I always make a stop for is the Tollgate Inn and Bakery in Sandy. Their bakery specializes in all sorts of scratch-made goodies, pies included. The Dutch Apple is awesome. For a more locally inspired flavor, check out the Mountain Berry.

They also offer great cherry and apple pies as well, either by the slice or ala mode. Plus it's an truly wonderful lodging property too, so if you decide to eat yourself into a food coma, you can book a room where you can sleep it off. 

Our Table Cooperative is pulling out all the stops, celebrating with both sweet and savory pies. Of the latter, choose from a delicious chicken pot pie or shepherd's pie, perfect for a fantastic dinner at home. Then for dessert you can choose from whole blueberry or lemon curd pies, or various other pies by the slice for only $3.14 each. (3.14...get it?)

If you're looking for gluten free and or vegan options, then head over to Kyra's Bakeshop in Lake Oswego. The 4-time Cupcake Wars champion is showing off her skills with a vegan raspberry popHeart (hand pies) and pecan or vegan triple berry pie by the slice. 

Fir Point Farms in Aurora is another spot known for their delicious sweet treats made fresh in their on-site bakery each day. The pies are no exception, and they offer a great variety of them. Plus there are a ton of great farm-fun activities for the kids, so they can work off the energy they'll get from their pie. 

Of course there's another great type of pie: pizza. For a roundup for places to get a great piece of pizza, check out Pi Day Pizza Pies.
