Crust me when I say I'm very, very happy that this is the most popular pie in Illinois.

At work, we celebrated Pi Day by eating all of our favorite kinds of pies; apple, pecan, cherry, chocolate silk, and my favorite... chicken pot pie.

Yes, I requested chicken pot pie because nobody said it was off limits lol.

There it is, sitting in all its glory!  The champion of pies, so I thought.

After indulging in all the delicious desserts, I started to wonder which pie the people of Illinois favored the most on Pi Day.

Well, it's definitely not what I expected, but I'm not made at it!

Honestly, pumpkin pie does put me in a really good mood.

My favorite season is fall, so when I start seeing pumpkin pies popping up at my local grocery stores, I know sweater weather is right around the corner!

In Wisconsin, their favorite is cranberry pie... the taste I'm getting in my mouth is pretty tarte and I don't like that.  Glad I live in Illinois haha.


For the love of math, I hope your Pi Day was just as amazing as mine. Splurge today and celebrate with some scrumptious pie in your face - your belly will thank you!
