I'm grumpy at the moment - short on adventures.....so we made a pie!
I've never done this before so I suppose it was something of an adventure. It wasn't helped by Robyn insisting on calling it a 'Pot Pie' - I think that's American for a pie.
I should explain that we are veggies or at least Robyn is fully vegetarian while I'm about 90% - which is not bad given that once I worked in the meat trade just off Smithfield market.
But we are really unhappy with readymade veggie pies - too salty, too expensive and not filling enough.
And they are so busy pretending to be meat pies they aren't very good.
So we wanted to make a vegetable pie full of......eh, vegetables.
I got the iced water out......gulp!
Note the artful dusting of flour on my top;
Coming good now;
Meanwhile Robyn did the sauce and the filling;
By this time I needed a sit down;
Not looking too bad for a beginner;
Looking really good now;
I think my lid was a bit too thick and stodgy.
But it was good enough in the end.
I must admit I argued against painting the top with egg but Robyn was right.
How cool is that?
Scrummy, although I think it needed some potatoes in there somewhere;
Well, it isn't climbing a mountain or travelling the world but as adventures go, it's not too bad.
