I’m still struggling so a friend offered to come and pick me up and we could go shopping.
But hubby just told me off for troubling other people. He still didn’t get what I wanted he says he fu(£%ING hates shopping. I had given him a long list earlier but he came back with twenty bananas instead of a pork pie. We discussed why and I suggested he tick things off as he got them. Half an hour later I gave him a list with four things on. He went out and managed to get two of them but didn’t tick them off. He thinks oatibix are porridge and pizzas are quiche! At least he got me some decaff. He’d be good working at a supermarket because he explained they were substitutions! Basically he can’t cope with walking round the shops he gets overwhelmed and wants to get back out and home. I can see him wandering off when we go together. He can’t concentrate!
We went out to Trentham Gardens for a pie and a walk.. Yes there is a pie under there. Beneath the chives and grated cheese. On a bed of mashed potatoes with onion gravy. It was delicious. A Pie Minister Moo pie. (warning, contains meat).
Having lots of apples is great, but then you have to use them. I want to cook a pie or a crumble or a cake, I just don’t have the energy at the moment. I might even stew the apples and make some pancakes to go with them. It would be good with some lemon juice. Lots of choices, lots of ideas, hopefully tasty.
I will add a photo when its cooked. I’m pretty sure it will have a soggy bottom. I’m using pre made puff pasty and some eating apples we got last week that needed using up. I lined a glass pie dish with foil and used butter to stop the pastry sticking. I had raised up the sides of the pastry and bent them in at the top over the top of the apples. I have put it in the oven on gas mark 7 for half an hour.
I can’t eat much sugar so have used a synthetic sugar substitute but because the apples are quite sweet I only used a couple of teaspoons of it.
Used one egg to glaze it, then realised there was too much so poured the rest into the pie through the holes in the roughly made lattice! So basically it’s thrown together, and with the puff pastry it might be a bit flaky!
