Pies ready for the tasting to begin
Sherry's Strawberry Rhubarb
The votes were counted and my strawberry rhubarb pie won!
I do need to clarify a few things though. Easter Sunday just happened to be my birthday and there is a rumor that my boys said they had to vote for my pie because it was my birthday. I do know that they all like my strawberry rhubarb pie but I hope that my birthday did not influence them when they voted. Next year we will have to do a much better job of keeping the names of the pie bakers secret until after the voting.
There is a little more to this story. Every Easter the guys in our family will play a card game for a prize which is a trophy with a rubber duckie on the top. It is called the Easter Keaster and has been won by one of our sons and has decorated our house for the past few years. This year I am happy to announce that our nephew Tim won and he took it home with him for the year.
Look at Tim's smile and he hadn't even won the trophy yet.
My brother-in-law Duane, the creator of the trophys that pass from house to house at each holiday decided we needed a trophy for the "Best Pie" contest so he went out to his workroom and this is what he came up with. It will live in our house until next year.
I made a little vest to make him more presentable.
I still think he will live hiding in my sewing room for the year.
Our family may be a little nutty but we do have fun!
