It's Pi Day! You know, the 14th of March, or 3.14.
Of course, you'll want to bake a pie to celebrate.
I'm baking an onion pie, because I'm opinionated (and don't make me come up there and explain my post title to you).
The onions from the garden patch are still slender; just starting to develop their spherical bulge. So we'll use a few, both red and white, sliced and sauteed in flowery oil.
The crust will be half whole wheat and half white flour, made with leaf lard. Oh yeah, we got some Range Brothers leaf lard from the kind Prather folks, and I'm excited, because I thought that stuff was impossible for the little people to get. (I'm little! Leave me alone, or bring me a booster seat and a box of crayons.)
To pad out the filling, I'm thinking some new potatoes, gently sauteed just to get them softened, and a handful of crumbled dry jack cheese. Perhaps a drizzle of cream.
Seasonings: thyme, salt, pepper.
Utter simplicity, and I'm having to describe all this to you because I haven't baked the pi pie yet.
Oh. Hey, maybe I have. Look:
