Yes, pie. And you have to say it in a broad Yorkshire accent.

I've never been a big fan of offal. I wouldn't call myself squeamish, though I suppose I totally am, but offal just isn't my thing. I suppose my mother forcing me to chop up 3 pounds of liver so she could make paté didn't really help (thanks, mum). I mean, up until last week I wouldn't even go near a piece of meat that wasn't completely grey all the way through.

(I tried a piece of lamb that I'd just seared to put in a casserole. I am NEVER going back.)

Anyway, I was pootling around Tesco and I looked in the reduced section - I'm a student, so shoot me - and I saw a pie.

My curiosity overcame me. I knew, at that moment, I HAD to try kidneys.

(Also, it was 69p.)

It looked pretty nice when it came out of the packet.

But imagine my horror when I saw these words:

Minced! What's the point of that?! They sell a version that only has steak in, so it can't be for the squeamish. I suppose it simply says something about the quality of the kidneys, which I don't really want to think about.

Well anyway, I burnt it a bit, but it looked all right. I fried some courgettes to go with it - I have a new obsession with courgettes, having hated them for the best part of my life:

It was nice. And I know if my GCSE English teacher were to read this, she'd hang her head in shame. But I mean just that - it wasn't fab, but you know, it was okay. It said the gravy was thick and it was - a bit too thick.

But come on. It was a pie. And it was 69p. What's not to love?

On a scale of one to yummy? A 10.


  1. Steak and Guinness pie for me.

  2. Also, they are lighter and can be used around plants which prefer somewhat
    acid content in the soil composition. Mulch will reduce weed growth and prevent new weeds from

  4. If one innocently applies an insufficient
    amount of sealer on a very porous concrete material,
    the said material may not be effective at all. The estimate you receive will be based on the number of
    skips you need, what size skip you want, and how long you plan to keep it.
    However, both the methods have their own pros and cons.

    It appears like some of the written text on
    your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and
    let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen previously. Cheers
