Re: Pie Question ANSWERS IN NEED

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I don't understand. What pie options are available?

Re: Pie Question ANSWERS IN NEED

Yeah, not well presented, forces one to make assumptions which may not be right. The only pies mentioned are "fruit pies", "apple pie" and "blueberry pie". Apple is a fruit, but blackberry isn't ...

Mrs. Bly could not have won the blackberry, because it isn't a fruit. Saying that Mrs. Wig's blueberry pie is better than her other pies does NOT mean she won in that category - it all depends on the level of competition in each category.

There is not enough to solve, but you could guess:

Mrs Bly: Apple
Mrs. Wig: Blueberry
Mrs. Jones: Chicken and Mushroom (why not smile )
