Picture of Easy Apple and Blackberry Pi Pie

Ahhhh a pie competition!! and in March! Well as you can see I decided on my favorite A+B = π. Now I do know that Pi itself is totally irrational, but my decision to proceed with this particular pie requires some explanation.

Pie rational(e) - an oxymoron :)

So, a pie competition. First thing that sprang to mind was a good chunky meat pie with lashings of delicious gravy. My resident math nerd veto'd this with ' Pythagoras was a vegetarian - no meat pie for the Py-man and not on pi day.'

OK... I countered this with a hearty bean pie, which was of course immendately squashed again. Unbeanownst to me, Pythagoras was terrified of beans for some irrational reason (funny given he wasn't an irrational type of bloke..), so that wouldn't do either.

I considered a seafood pie, but it was quickly discounted as the idea of an octopie just plain freaked me out!

Abandoning all savory pursuits I delved a little deeper into my pie repertoire (and my freezer) and brought forth this pi-tastic creation. Behold! the totally rational irrational Apple and Blackberry pie. And its easy too!
