Pie of the Day - Apple Pie

simon-on-the-river3 Mar 07, 2019. 4 comments

It had to be. The American symbol of the cult of Momism is today’s pie. Apple pie. The humble apple pie is pretty staple here as well. My grandmother used to let the spare room to exchange students. A French student who went on to become a firm family friend extended his stay picking fruits at a local orchard (yes, that included apples) always found it odd that she served hot apple pie with a dollop of cold ice cream. Not that he complained about eating it that way, but he associated cold ice cream with cold pie. The things us crazy Brits do, eh!

I had a steak and kidney pie for lunch. At least that’s what I ordered but it was a very yellow steak and kidney. Ah, hang on it’s cheese and onion. They swapped it over but a few minutes later I noticed a lady in the chippie eating a cheese and onion pie. I hope she got a fresh one.

Baked spuds no longer sell like hot potatoes Baked spuds no longer sell like hot potatoes

Alas poor Spudulike. It seems so easy, sell baked spuds and they will shift like hot potatoes. Except they don’t and the Edinburgh fast food chain that was synonymous with baked potatoes has dismissed around 300 staff and closed all 37 outlets. Weren’t there more? I can’t recall the last time I went to a Spudulike. They were never...

Isn’t this how Day of The Doctor ended? At least that chap from A Kick Up The Eighties isn’t around. And yes, I really wish they would post that clip on Red Nose Day sometime.

Pie of the Day - Lamb Pie Pie of the Day - Lamb Pie

I cooked lamb chops today. And very good they were too. But at the end of Pie Week it seemed right to make a nod towards the humble Lamb Pie. If you are thinking of a Georgian or Victorian scene where the pieman hoists a tray of meat pies above his head as he walks through the London squalor,...

Pie of the Day - Pork Pie Pie of the Day - Pork Pie

This is what did for Ernie. A stale pork pie. Now I have thought about it, I fancy one. I will have to go without though. In Melton Mowbray, Lancashire the pork pie has been dislodged by a Vegan Pie as Champion Pie. Quite how many vegans were sacrificed for this pie I do not know. Vegan pastry takes...

Pie of the Day -  Fish Pie Pie of the Day -  Fish Pie

This pie doesn’t gave pastry. If you know a shepherdess who swims it might be possible to rustle up an interesting Surf’n’Turf Pie. Might have to put that to the test. Last time I bought one of those fish pie mixes - bits of cod, haddock and salmon - I used it in a kedgeree. Fish pie recipe -...

Pie of the Day - Chicken Pie Pie of the Day - Chicken Pie

What came first? The chicken pie or the egg pie? Quick confession. I hated chicken pie. There was something wrong with such things. Tasteless, soggy, just not right. Keep them away from me. My conversion to chicken pies came while paintballing. A bunch of folk from the old firm trotted off to the woods to shoot each other. We...

Pie of the Day - Pancake Pie Pie of the Day - Pancake Pie

This isn’t the pie I was going to mention. But it is Pancake Day. Can’t imagine trying this - unless somebody cooks it for me - but having made a joke about Pancake Pie I discovered there are loads of things that adopt this moniker. Pancake pieMake the pancake dough using the flour, milk, vanilla sugar and eggs. Bake...

Pie of the Day - Steak and kidney Pie of the Day - Steak and kidney

Chances are I will crack open a tinned Fray Bentos Steak and kidney pie rather than make my own. Besides where can you get the ingredients these days? Still, given that it is Pie Week perhaps I should have a go at making my own?This is how Mary Berry did it in 1976. The idea of 29p kidney has...

Good Morning Backtalk Good Morning Backtalk

I’m spending the day in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, meeting up with a friend that lives in the center part of the state. Let me asking you, how is your day and what delicious desserts might you try? Out here there is the Shoo-fly pie, which I might have to partake, unless there are even more delicious strawberry rhubarb pies....

Judge this Humble Pie Judge this Humble Pie

Pumpkin pie is garbage but I imagine that this is not an improvement. Thoughts?
