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?
