Sounds nice, have to put it on our Eurobodalla Meals on Wheels menu at our board meeting tomorrow. We do have MyChef Chicken Mornay and rice, but not Chicken and moray pie, do they bite? The pie I mean not the eel.

There is a Harry's on George Street near Capitol theatre I'd guess getting off at Central and a short walk down George would be the way to go.
Maybe a walk down George St is not a good option with all the construction going on at the present time ,I believe the Drop Bears are very aggressive

Isn't the construction is further down the towards Wynyard and Circular Quay rather than Central however the drop bears can be an issue anywhere along that stretch.

I was just at Woolworths and a tube of Pringles - Meat Pie flavour, jumped into my trolley. I think they were mentioned on here a few weeks ago by Mr Gut? Anyone tried them.

Have to wait until wine'oclock to sample them. So sad.

Crikey, I might have to smother them in Aldi tomato sauce. Give youse all a report later, if I am still alive.lol.

I actually did try a deep fried Mars Bar in the UK a few years ago, purchased it at a fish and chipper in Essex, not Scotland, so probably not ridgey didge. I ate it but did not like it, perhaps I should have put salt and malt vinegar on it like the cod and chips.

DH and I have been in south west Victoria the past three days visiting my parents at Warrnambool. Yesterday we drove to Port Fairy and had lunch at Cobb's Bakery. I had a fabulous beef and veggie pastie and DH had potato/cottage pie and a beef and kidney one which he was most impressed with. They have a wide range of pies, pasties and sausage rolls plus I saw apple turnovers! Other district bakeries that produce great pies are Chitticks and Browns at Warrnambool and Clarkes at Mortlake. The Terang Country Bakery which has recently opened has already won places in the Great Australian Pie Competition.

Well just had a couple of Pringles - meat pie flavour. Smaller box = smaller Pringles. look the same as others, and they have the Pringle crunch and I can taste a burnt taste like something remotely resembling a meat pie, - burnt pastry and meat flavour. Not bad, but not great, 6/10. Maybe the Teachers Scotch and Schweppes dry ginger ale was not the right adult beverage to accompany the Pringles.

Forwarded for information.

No wind up Brian, I have relos in Benfleet and Rayleigh. I got the deep fried mars bar in Sarfend on Mud. They are quite common in London, I do believe.

Maybe you have been in exile in Calabria for too long old son, lol.

Made in Malaysia, not buying them anymore. Pringles used to be made in Belgium.

John Birmingham's reason 10 for voting no (satirical):

Because have you ever seen a gay man eat a pie?. When the gay marriage law enslaves the bakers of the nation and forces them to make gay wedding cakes and nothing else there will be no more pies.
