Easy as pie

Brambleton's Fall Fest is coming up on Saturday, October 20. This is the first year that I've actually been in town, and it looks like it's going to be fun. It's nice when the community-wide activities appeal to all ages, not just the short set.

This year, there's a new event: the "Slice of the Sweet Life in Brambleton" pie baking contest. Winners in the Adult and Youth category receive the coveted Golden Pie Plate award. Well, neighbors, prepare to see yours truly sweep the competition. I have been laboring in secret to perfect my very special pie recipe. A test pie made last week wowed 5 out of 5 taste testers (including myself). One of those testers was inspired to make his own pie, and I was promised a slice, but it never materialized. Perhaps he abandoned hope in the face of perfection.

It costs $10 to enter a pie, and proceeds from the entries and from the sale of pie slices go to Loudoun Interfaith Relief. (More information about the rules and judging criteria are available on the Brambleton Intranet.) So go forth, bake pie, and help this worthwhile organization. See if you can snatch the prize away from BrambleDirt.

I'll bet one slice of that pie isn't as good as whole pies would be. I plan to buy a lot.
