Day 2067 - Contestant Extraordinaire!
Greetings, Bloggy Bakers and Carvers!
I am entering the apple pie contest at work - I need to bring in my pie TOMORROW MORNING.
That means I need to get as much ready tonight as possible. Yesterday I picked up the apples, and also bought fresh flour and shortening for the piecrust.
It has been YEARS since I made a pie, but I figure it's like riding a bicycle - once you know how, YOU KNOW HOW for life. I used to make pies all the time.
My mother is really the queen of pie baking, but I feel confident that my submission will be acceptable.
And guess what? Yesterday at work we got an email that it is PUMPKIN CARVING contest time again! I won last year.
So... is it even conceivable to win both? I dunno, but I'm gonna try!
Yes, you can win both, I'm sure! I know your apple pie will be delicious and the hit of the office! You have always been a fabulous cook! Maybe they'll have a jams and jelly contest some time. You'll win that--we can all attest to your prowess in that regard!Post a Comment
