It’s the great bake off! Lena is excited to show off her pie-making skills. She made an apple pie with Johnathon apples, her specialty. All the women hope to win the blue ribbon. There are apple cakes, sponge cakes, and other pies. It smells heavenly, dessert right out of the oven. Families, friends, and curious bystanders gather around in a park in the Ozark’s. It is fall and the weather is nice. Another woman, Fannie, helps herself to applesauce. Judges decide the winner, four of them. The judges have years of experience eating pies. They must be socially attuned to the will of the people. The bake off tradition is held once a year. It has been going on for a mighty long time. Little kids stand at the front of the crowd. Someone is blowing up a balloon. There are lots of people and the energy is high. The blue ribbon goes to Sarah Applegate who made the Chocolate Mousse Cake.
