Mango PI

The tangy mango was enrobed in lightly spiced, thickened juice and tucked in under crispy pastry. Gastrogasm :-)

Ooooo... I have a new recipe in my repertoire: soft fruit pie :-)

Layer the fruit with a little sugar, spice and rice flour, into a greased pie dish. Cover with a pastry lid. Bake until golden, about 20 mins at 200 C. If you want the fruit soft, either pre-cook, or turn down the oven and bake another 20 mins until bubbly.

This should work with just about any soft fruit, appropriate quantities of sugar (the minimum :-) and harmonious spices.

Mango and nutmeg PI existed for about half an hour, before it was cool enough for me to eat it all up entirely on my own with a small spoon and no friends HA! :-))))

I've just discovered some Pilsbury puff pastry in my freezer which needs using up!

I slept reasonably well, and I'm feeling slightly less 'out of it today'. I still need to take things easy.

It's Fairtrade Fortnight, and I have Fairtrade fresh mango and pineapple in the house.

I see Mango Pie in my near future :-))))

Apple pie!

Since there isn't a 14th month in our calender, and ISO date format is bigendian, I declare today to be:

20060314

and admit that it is Pi Day (3.14 ...).

But I'm too spaced out to make myself any pies! I'm probably to spaced, and too picky about bizarre added and processed ingredients, to go out and buy pies. So watch out for me designating one day very soon as, Pi Day (observed) and indulging appropriately.

I'm happy to include any style of pie, such as tarts, pasties, hot water crust, shepherdess, Edittamale! ... just as long as it's Real Food (see above) - and preferably, vegan (that's how I'm feeling, with a tip of my porkless-pie-hat to [livejournal.com profile] serenejournal).

Clarkson Pie

'Jeremy Clarkson was hit with a pie after picking up an honorary degree ... [he] was heard to say "great shot" when hit by the pie.

"I do have a disregard for the environment. I think the world can look after itself and we should enjoy it as best we can."'
