Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Steve entered this apple pie in a contest at Los Olivos Day In The Country 2004. The other entries were decorated with flowers and cutesy stuff. We joked that Steve’s pie was a manly pie because of the piece together-rough edges look. He lost to the local doctor’s wife and cried that it was favoritism. Soon after his pie was delivered to the contest, Barbara Lindberg (Steve’s Mom) noticed that the pie was put back on a table behind the judges and not out with the other pies. Everyone in the Lindberg family became concerned and wondered “what’s up with Steve’s pie?” All pies were cut into pieces and sold to the public but the judge (a well known local chef) was purchasing Steve’s pie for himself! We knew Steve’s manly pie was the best tasting pie but not the best in show apple pie!
