Celebrity Pie Judge

lemon meringue pie      Thanks to Beagle Books in Park Rapids, I have something new to add to my resume.  On July 4th, after signing copies of Shelterbelts, I was invited to participate in their annual pie contest as the celebrity judge.  There were five of us, tasting our way through a plethora of delicious pies.   A rubric kept us on track as we examined the flakiness of crust, taste and appearance of the filling and evaluated the ooze factor.   A peanut butter pie won out, as did a fantastic strawberry pie, but it was hard to choose.  The pies were judged first, and then auctioned off as a fund-raiser for the Park Rapids Library.  I hope they invite me again next year!  And just how do you think celebrity pie judge will look on my resume?

    What a very hard job! I bet real skill goes into that delicious competition! Which pie did you choose?

  2. LOL. What fun. What a way to spend the 4th,,,,,,,pies, pies, pies.

  3. Pie judging is an all American 4th of July event that will do wonders for your resume as a community supporter! I like how you put flakiness of the crust top of your judging criteria list.
