After six years, Yoli has finally gotten her due. Her caramel apple pie won the “All-American Pie Contest” with at the Ferguson Farmers Market on Saturday.
Today I took Jadzia to the Challenger Learning Center in Ferguson to have a space mission. It was a surprise that Yoli had long wanted to give to her. The timing was good since we just visited the Houston Space Center in August, and Jadzia has really gotten interested in space.
My day at the Ferguson farmer’s Market started early this week.
I got up at 7:40 in order to get there right when the market opened. Yoli needed fresh strawberries for her entry in the strawberry contest that would be held 2 hours later.
Today, the Ferguson Farmer’s Market had its pie contest. Yoli really likes these dessert contests.
Yoli’s first-place berry-contest victory was mentioned on the front page of the July issue of the Ferguson Times. At long last, she gets to revel in glory.
Thankfully, they didn’t misspell either “Yolange” or “Renaud.” Unfortunately, they did transpose her names: “Renaud Yolange.”
It’s a new season at the Ferguson farmer’s market, which means more chances for Yoli to enter contests.
You may recall that last year Yoli took second place in the pie contest.
This year there is no pie contest, unfortunately. In its place, the market will hold several contests for different fruits. Saturday was the first: the berry contest. Any “delicious creation” that featured berries was eligible.
Yoli took second place in the Ferguson pie contest yesterday with this apple-cranberry pie she baked. She had been itching to compete for more than a year.
