She’s a geek, too – she loved it….
(And yes, I bought myself one as well – can’t be letting her have all the fun!)

You can purchase a Pi Plate of your very own from the What On Earth? catalog – it’s a veritable smorgasbord for a nerd like me…. 😛

************************************************

I’m including Rachel’s Pumpkin Pie recipe here as well – it’s actually the recipe that you’ll find on the back of every can of Libby’s Pure Pumpkin; she makes it every year for Thanksgiving, and there’s never any left….
