What do I know? We have been making pies for tea. One thing I miss about England is the pies and the proper chippies. They call them chippers over here. The chip-shops/chippers don't sell pies. A typical menu would be: Burger and Chips, Fish and Chips, Battered sausage and chips... This is starting to sound like the Monty Python 'Spam' sketch.
Any road it's very difficult to get proper pies like they have in dear old Blighty. In recent years we have been able to purchase Tetley tea bags, Vimto (if you travel to Cork or Killarney for it) and Newcastle Brown Ale. We can sometimes get pork pies if we go to Tesco in Killarney or Cork. Sixty miles for a pork pie is a bit far, isn't it?
Yesterday I got the wife to make some pies for us tea. Why I have gone all Yorkshire? We (she) made two pork mince pies for the lads and two Chilli con carne pies for us. The Chilli con carne came from out of a tin bought in Aldi. They tasted very nice.
Do you make your own pies? What's your favourite? Hope it's not mackerel and rhubarb. Not had a good spud pie for a while. Wonder where she is?
