Colorado Center for the Blind
Take Charge with Confidence and Self-Reliance

Pie-day Friday

There are always firsts at the Colorado Center for the Blind. For example, today Casey, a relatively new student, went on his first independent route to Romancing the Bean. Sure, he’d been there before, but not traveling on his own. And that’s what makes it a first.

Adia has been at the center since August, and last night she cooked her dinner party – for herself and five guests. This afternoon, Cody completed his mini-meal – it’s only for 15 people. He served Mississippi Pot Roast over smoked mashed potatoes and homemade bread.

What makes the pot roast “Mississippi?”

“A whole lot of butter.”

And this afternoon the CCB Student Association is hosting the first-ever pie contest. There are seven student entries, and Julie, Daniel and Vicki are the judges.

Late Breaking!

The seven contestants and their pies were:

  • Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie with Chocolate crust – Lia took second place
  • Carmel apple – Melissa
  • Tropical Mango topped with nuts and whipped cream – Cesar
  • Key Lime – Zach P.
  • Raspberry Pie – Adia
  • Cherry Pie – Tyler.

But the winner, baking his very first pie, was Justin with a crispy apple, proving that sometimes it’s hard to beat the simple basics! First prize included a new rolling pin.
