    Slightly off topic… Bimsy, I’ll phone the pub right now to order the post BMX pies for next Monday.

    Carry on.

    Fidel Gastro?

    Thanks for that. Is there a term for a keyboard which is full of tea?

    Teaboard? 🙂

    Although, having said that, it might not actually be tea. You’d need to get it checked and verified by the STW food police.

    Milk? Sugar? What sort of receptacle was it in ? Were the leaves hand picked on the north facing slopes above 800 feet elevation by certified virgins ?

    Phoned the pub and the landlord said without any prompting “Right then, I’ll get the pies in.”

    He knows us too well.

    Just to go back a few steps, surely ‘Cottage’, ‘Shepherds’ and ‘Fish’ are worthy of honorary pie status? They have been around as pies for much longer than the casserole with hat phenomenon.

    Someone earlier ruined the idea of pie. They mentioned serving pie with ‘butter beans’! Butter beans for crissakes!

    Butter beans have their place – but that place is nowhere near an honest pie.

    ‘Tis better to have a pie with a proper (shortcrust pastry) lid than a pie with a soggy bottom.

    The look of wonder and delight on my hubby’s face when the chippy in Hawes brought out his meat pie, chips, gravy and baked beans*, to see that it was home made and not just a ‘Hollands’ style, will stay in my memory for many years.

    * it should be peas with a pie lad not beans.

    Careful, you were one step away from Artisan there and you know what that means…

    If it’s a supermarket meat pie, that’s probably inaccurate.

    I’m about to have steak pie, chips, peas and gravy.

    A proper pie! Encased in pastry 🙂

    Happy British pie week you lot!

    I wonder if you could combine that into a pie in it’s own right, like DrP/J(?) did with his breakfast pie? Pastry case, your meatiness, chips on top, mushy peas on that, drown the lot in gravy and then whack the lid on.

    Steak pie, chips, peas and gravy pie!

    Make it happen.

    Can someone make that happen please?

    It is almost as if giving you a set of stepladders has established some sort of telepathic link.

    Something else has just occurred to me.

    I think you’ll find that YOU are the southerner in this particular debate.

    I believe we need to apply an Inverse Square Law here.

    Your authority to pass judgement on pies is inversely proportional to the square of the number of miles you are from Wigan. So if you’re in the Shetland Islands you can sod right off, and if you’re in Cornwall then come back with a pastie.

    It’s kinda related to ?.r^2, the formula for calculating the area of a pie crust.

    Too bloody confusing all this to-ing and fro-ing with “what is & what isn’t/doesn’t” constitute a Pie, even geographical location and ladders have entered the conversation.

    I had Thai Pie

    Chicken & gravy pie with peppered & buttered sprouts the bit missing was the wife’s.

    Oh & 23 miles from Wigan

    That’s a confusing pie. I want to mock it, but not as much as I want to try it.

    Your wife’s bits are missing from the pie?

    Here’s a sucker punch from north of the border, Tunnocks (of the famous Caramel Wafers, Teacakes etc.) also do steak pies, beautiful meat fully encased in shortcrust pastry but only available from the Tunnocks shop on the Main St. in Uddingston. You cannot even begin to imagine how good they are. Haha.

    Seems a bit harsh to include Macauley Culkin on the passenger list for the sunbound space missile. Whilst his crimes are indeed many and varied, I’m pretty sure he isn’t guilty of any of the misdemeanours listed and I’ve yet to see him express any concrete opinions on the whole pie question..

    No it was just badly described by me!
    Its a Chicken & gravy pie. The sprouts are just added in the space where my wife’s portion was, not her bits Cougar 😮

    Simple steak and Guinness pie for me tonight, and by pie I obviously mean entirely encased in short crust pastry.
    I had it with chips, for dipping in the extra gravy. Chips that were delivered as potatoes this morning, not tipped out of a bag from the freezer.

    I’m Southern, but I think I’ve got this right.

    funkrodent – no offence but it’s attitudes like yours that encourage the dim witted to continue along their path of crimes against bakery products.

    There is no “whole pie question”.

    Pastry lid AND case = Pie.

    Anything else = inferior foodstuffs.

    Mmmm. Whole Pie…

    Oh and for the record – binners picture of the ” pie with the sides missing” is I believe a section which has been hewn from larger pie which WILL of course have had a pastry case…… Because it’s a pie.

    Can we add people who use the term Life Hack to the guest list on the SunShip™? They can sit next to those who are confused about the meaning of pie.
