My Hairy is having birthday drinks tonight, which means he’s going to be going straight out after work and won’t have had lunch or time for dinner unless we eat out. My plan is to surprise him with bite sized pies so he’s had something tasty before we go out and paint the town a primary colour of your choice!
I’ve stuck with shortcrust pastry as I can make that without thinking about it, and it’s a nice buttery rich outside. As always, I’m making do with whatever I’ve got in the kitchen so I’m making mini pies in muffin tins which are old and manky, so lined with baking paper. I’m planning on chorizo, sausage and onion fillings, maybe with some of the fresh herbs I’ve got growing downstairs.
I’m still waiting for the builders who were due yesterday! The blighters won’t talk to me, so it’s getting on my nerves that we’ve been living here for over a month and still have to get into bed in the dark! BUT I am off to a Vintage fair on Sunday, which I’m so looking forward to. I meant to go last time, but didn’t have enough money to make it worth it 🙂
I’ll pop up a picture of my little lovely pies later, if they turn out ok! How about you? Do you have any tasty food planned for today? Are you doing anything over the weekend? Anywho, must dash. I can smell my pies calling to me 😀
