Today is Pi Day (March 14 = 3/14 = 3.14 = pi).

And I love to bake and eat pie. Therefore, Pi Day, to a foodie, easily morphs into Pie Day.

So if I say Haiku, and then I say Pieku, you get it, right?

According to the Urban Dictionary, Pieku is a poem about pie written in 5-7-5 syllable format, with the 17 syllables including a “kigo” or reference to a season.

Here we go:

Blueberry stained teeth,
Eyes rolling back in my head,
Late summer goodness
(Go here to see Dorothy’s “Genius” Fresh Blueberry Pie!)


I have eaten the
plums in the icebox (breakfast?)
Made pie. Forgive me!
(my deepest condolences to William Carlos Williams)

Want savory?

Salmon Quiche with Preserved Lemon on Shockingly Delicious. Recipe: https://www.shockinglydelicious.com/?p=11375Try my new favorite Salmon Quiche. I can eat this for breakfast, lunch or dinner! (Well…maybe that’s what I could say about any pie.)

Find a pie on Shockingly Delicious and bake it! If you send me a photo, I will love you forever.

(Oh yeah, about the Pieku…I’m not a poet, and I know it.  😛 )

I might need to make your cottage cheese pie today. Made that once and really loved it!

Oh yes, you DO need to make that today. I love that pie.

DR, I just got a text from William Carlos Williams, and he says he is honored.
