Yesterday's Lunch

Had a fantastic and unusual lunch yesterday. My friend decided straight away that she wanted the curry but I'd seen the above on the menu and couldn't resist. It was called the Pie Collection and consisted of four mini pies (they look bigger in the picture), one cottage pie, one steak and ale, one chicken and mushroom, and one spiced steak and kidney, all in pastry that melted in the mouth. The pies came with a dish of scalding hot creamed potato, a dish of mushy peas, and a jug of delicious gravy. It's a pity the camera didn't capture the wooden platter which had ornate carving on the ends. I ate like a king and could hardly move afterwards .... ooooh but it was worth it. The wine was a new one called Divine ... it was too!

OMG Valerie, my mouth is literally watering while looking at that photo!

You have no idea how much I adore dinner pies. My favorite being (I know, I'm boring) Shepherd's Pie. OMG...I could eat them until they come out of my ears. That's another reason why I enjoy the fall and winter months - comfort food!

Thanks for sharing your lunch day, dear lady. Now I'm starving - HA!

Have a great weekend!

Your lunch is fit for a king for sure. It looks absolutely delicious. Did you have to take some home or were you able to eat it all? Have a great weekend....:-)Hugs

CW: the timing was wrong...grins

Bernie: they were only LITTLE pies. I was a bit full when I finished though.

Ron: ah yes, comfort food. You can't beat it - even in summer. You're not boring, my friend, you're as normal as me (Hmmm!)

Monda: they were delicious. Home made, too.

Looks like a good way to spend your lunch. We have a place in town called the Bull's Head Pub that serves us English fare and seeing that picture reminds me it is time to visit again. Take care and I hope all is well with you and yours despite those riots.
