Pi day approacheth

Okay, it's a month away, but it's never too soon to start thinking about celebrating pi day! I made a classic this past weekend. Make an all-butter crust, then peel and thinly slice at least six different varieties of apples (I used pink lady, gala, granny smith, red delicious, and I forget what else). Stir some flour, cinnamon, sugar and lemon juice into the apple slices, and pour them into the crust.

Don't panic if you have too many - just bake a secondary dish of apple slices!

Drape the top crust on, and take a little time to embellish it if you can: 

I promise you can taste the love all the way to the last slice eaten for breakfast the next morning:

  For a different slice of pie, and to solve the bonus clue, follow this recipe:
1. The first ten digits of π.  They are: 3.141592653...
2. These 10 operations: - x + + x + ÷ + + -
3. The green 10 number sequence on your Mission Narus card.

1. Start with the first digit of π.  Apply the first operation to the first digit on your card. (In this case, 3 - first # on card = ?)
2. Convert this number to its alphabetic equivalent.

Repeat for the 2nd digit of π/2nd operation/2nd # on card.
When complete you'll have a 10 letter word.  Text this word to Mission Control.
Eat more pie!
