- Whats up with pies in Scotland ?
He did not buy them, he got us to work for them, we had to goto the side of the railway lines and pick up the loose bits of coal that fell from the carriages on the way to the local steel works. we got one pie for 1 bag of 112lb of coal, if we were lucky on a good day. 2 bags for 1 most days. This was before we walked 10 miles to school.Posted 7 years ago
Not quite a barm and not a stupid American sweet thing eitherPosted 7 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
If you really have Hollands withdrawl (its a long time since I’ve checked as there isn’t a branch round here) but you might get packs of them frozen in Farmfoods.
Simple Simon pies are very good but they’re a posh pie and unfortunately your local posh deli probably won’t stock them any more as Waitrose seem to be hoovering them all up.
If you are passing Ayrshire then Brownings pies are better than the mean.
pie on a barm (muffin?) = a wigan kebab
Have you had a scotch pie in a mortons crispy roll yet?Posted 7 years agofirestarterMember
I was once up on the north east coast and saw some nice suet looking pies in the warmer, so asked for that and chips. My chat to my mate was interrupted by a strange sizzling dark brown bubbling grease mass on the side as I queried to the woman she began chucking pizzas in the fryer for the person behind. apparently the warmer was for warning and the fryer was to get it to proper temperature.Madness it was also awful as I had to try it 😉Posted 7 years ago
