They tell fibs sometimes, but then many do in a court of law, from both sides.

 

Enough of that rubbish, let us get back on the topic: Meat Pies. Walls in UK make good ones, big range of products, old company. Brian could tell us about them. www.walls-pastry.co.uk

Hi,never seen Walls pies here although the Mrs said her dad used to sell them in his grocery shop in Whitechapel,donkeys years ago.We get Walls sausages and bacon,we bring a load over in the cool box when we drive back in the new year.Just remembered,in most shopping malls like Lakeside etc there is a chain called The Square Pie Co. in the food court and they are quite unique with all sorts of fillings.You guys would probably like those.Cheers,Brian.

Hi,have you guys tried East End pie and mash.There are shops as far as Southend.We were both born in East London and the Mrs loves it.I'm not mad on it,a bit bland for me with the "cold water pastry" and runny minced beef.Worth a try when you're in the UK,cheers,Brian.

Crikey Walls have got a Chicken Tikka Slice ,we should send a box to both plumbers.! Is it worth having a whiparound and sending a few snag rolls as well.? Been to the UK many times and never seen this product. clear.png?emoji-wink-1685

 

You have to go into a decent supermarket like Sainsburys or Waitrose to get the Walls.

I was in Sarfend on Mud 2 years ago, did not see them. But might be in the area for a few days next year, pre or post cruises.:halo: Not finalised my itinerary yet after all the dramas with Adonia sale and cancellation of cruses. Grrrrr

Lots of meat pies in Australia - but, like our beer, avoid ANYTHING made by the mega-factories.

Proper Sarsons Malt Vinegar! Sorry Australia, your Malt Vinegar just isnt the same!

However, vinegar doesnt belong on meat pies!! Fish and chips, yes and lashings of the stuff on top of Macaroni Cheese, yes, but not meat pies!!

Red haired and freckles, yep that’s her.

 

And let’s say with a surname like Hogan before I rescued her, what else do you think she’d be? But her mob arrive long before 1860, her earliest were on the second cruise after Cookie got here.

 

As for me I’m a bit of mixed bag, mums side mainly Scotland, Ireland and a England, on dads mum’s side good Dutch stock, dad’s dad pure English from around Dorset and Devon.

 

I’m also honestly able to say that my Great, Great Grandfathers was a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy and James Cook (I just avoid mentioning that I’m talking about two different blokes).
