Mensagem: 

Which is the correct form?


a. I was blamed for it before I HAD SAID anything.
b. I was blamed for it before I SAID anything.

And


a. The waiter took my plate before I HAD FINISHED it.
B. The waiter took my plate before I FINISHED it.

My doubt is: Can I use the past perfect with before or shall I use simple past?

Thanks
