RECOMMENDED EATING: CHEESE & ONION PASTY...



Had a cheese & onion pasty yesterday - superb.  Where can
you get such a culinary delight I hear you ask?  Where else but
your local GREGGS Bakery.  Rush 'round and buy one today.

Greggs makes lovely mince pies at Christmas. I used to regularly buy Greggs sandwiches but I don't any more.

Greggs do lots of good stuff, CJ. I don't think I've tried their mince pies, but I will be now that you've told me about them. Sluuuurp!

Kid, I think the mince pies are made in the shop so the ones you get might taste different to the ones I get.

Talking of mince pies - I've mentioned that when my father was a boy in Glasgow they didn't celebrate Christmas much (he was born in 1927) and there weren't any mince pies apparently. In the early '50s my father moved to London and at Christmas he saw mince pies on sale and bought some, thinking they were meat pies - only to get a mouthful of currants. He threw them away and never ate another mince pie ever again.

We call meat pies 'Scotch Pies' up here for some reason, CJ. Personally, I like both kinds. I remember you saying before that your father said Christmas wasn't celebrated much in Glasgow in the 20s & 30s, but I remain unconvinced. Maybe it was just your father's family who weren't into it so much, or maybe it was more of an upper class thing. You always see movies and TV shows set in the times celebrating Christmas, although that's hardly conclusive proof I'll admit.

Well, he said Christmas Day was just an ordinary working day when he was young but he also said they had Christmas presents so it's a bit confusing.

In the '80s Iceland sold frozen Scotch pies - my father bought some now and then. They looked like the pies in The Beano which isn't very surprising as the Beano was produced in Dundee :)

Farmfoods sell a box of six for around £1.60 or thereabouts. I'll be buying a box today. In fact, I had a pie and beans for my tea yesterday.
