Right, a decision has been made...
From this Friday Pie Day forward, I shall go forth and make a Pieminister pie on the last Friday of every month, which shall be known as 'Friday @pieminister Day'!
(Or something thereabouts.)
Now I've had the Pieminister cookbook for ages now, but have only made a couple of pies from it so far. But I'm always reading it (recipe books to me are like the classic novel you never tire of) and murmur yummy sounds to on a regular basis.
Yes, time to take some proper pie action and have some real Pieminister adventures!
The Clapshot Pie is basically a shepherd's pie with a Scottish head - in other words, a clapshot mashed top of swede, potato and butter.
This was actually meant to have crispy shallots on it too, but I managed to er, mess up on that front.
Now I had a look in my local supermarket for crispy shallots (apparently you can get canned ones) but couldn't find any. No matter, I'll pick up a bag of shallots from the veg section and crisp them up myself, I thought. And then promptly forgot to do this.
There were no shallots to be seen at my local market either, so in the end, decided to just fry up some normal red onion instead. Alas, when it came to making the pie, I promptly forgot to do this.
Oh, what bother, I'll simply have to make (and eat) this all over again...
