You heard me.

Ali and I made a fresh cherry pie to take to Chris' party tonight. It was the best pie I have ever tasted. We are going to win Pie Contest with that pie this year. I bet we win both the Presentation and Fruit Pie divisions; the winner of Fruit Pie almost always wins Best In Show. Y'all might as well start working on your Savory and Non-Fruit Pies, and hope to scavenge some prizes over there. If you ask nicely, I won't enter Non-Fruit Pie this year.

(I hold Pie Contest in late August. I'll post the invite here in early August.)

Alright, Megan, though others voiced suspicion, I was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt before, even after the post about your large bust. But with this, you have shattered my suspension of disbelief. A single, pretty, smart, large-busted, fun/raunchy-sex starved woman--who is also an award-winning pie-baker? Ludricous. Obviously this whole site is some sort of practical joke.

Well, Pie Contest is all lay bakers, friends and friends of friends. In a good year it gets three dozen entries. I've never won the whole thing, but I usually place in some division. I've said all along that I am a good cook.

It's true, that pie was 'an orgasm in your mouth', as Ali would say. And I got the last piece (for now), suckas!

You're a good cook? Impossible. Good cooks will cook meat.

Of course fruit pies always win best in show. Because all the judges come from fruit-pie backgrounds, and all the promising new talent is attracted to the easy glamour of the fruit. It’s a vicious circle. When was the last time a vegetable pie was given a fair chance? And don’t you dare mention 1973, because I don’t even want to get into the whole Rhubarb-Strawberry controversy and the “less than 25% fruit” rule.

All I know is that the world is ready for my Brussel Sprout Pie, and you fruit fascists are keeping me down.

Never more were words so true, or atleast that's what I tell my vegetarian sister everytime we're eating in joint company.

Vegetable pies represent in the Savory Pie division. I've entered it every year, but I always lose to some cheater who puts bacon in their pie. Bacon is invincible.

Threads like this one are precisely why Megan's blog is worth checking daily.

So who are the judges? And who puts bacon in pie?

Everyone can enter; everyone is a judge. When you bring a pie, it is assigned a number (this is a pie contest, not a popularity contest). Everyone gets a ballot and votes for the pies of their choice. I spent two days looking up voting algorithms before I chose the one I did.

You don't have to bring a pie. There is more than everyone can eat. Actually, you can't eat anything sweet for several days after Pie Contest.

Fucking cheaters put bacon in their pie, and then my spinach-mushroom pie doesn't win.

Which voting method did you go with?

Fucking cheaters put bacon in their pie...

Thank you. That clarifies everything.

Ooh, ooh, new question: who's the kid in the pic with you?

Woah - picture change!
Somewhere around now you changed from:

Is it because you want to show off the new hair? Or because you figure a photo with a child will screen out guys who don't want one?

Personally, I liked the older photo better, but what do I know then, really? I couldn't bake a pie to save my life.

That's my perfect nephew; we were at the birth of my other perfect nephew. I changed the picture just to get more attention. It's also more recent, from January.
