Evolution

Being one who likes to do things right, Ben was determined to re-do the glorious meat pies already featured here. His goal was to make them smaller and all the same size. He also wanted to add a little kick to the meat and get it to the right amount of mushiness. Yes, that's a scientific term.




My goal was to eat them. I mean, just look at them.


Oh meat pies and how I love thee....

It's the land of meat pies. Meat pies everywhere as far as the I can see... being handmade with love just for me.



If I don't get one of those pies...you've been warned.

Well, maybe Bitty too.


Oh honey, honey.......

Is there nothing more heartwarming than a man in the kitchen combining the sweet taste of pie crust and meat? Did I mention I love meat? I adore it.


Drooling in anticipation

These pies could extract crazy phrases from my desperate lips. Things like, "I'll give you a thirty minute foot massage. I'll wash your car. I'll eat tofu."


Luckily, I was too busy stuffing my face to utter such terrifying phrases. Sorry darling. No car washing or tofu for you. The foot massage is negotiable.


Yes, that is a cracker with peanut butter stuck to my head.

As most of my Invisible Friends know, I am not a sophisticated person.

My toenail paint is chipped most of the time, I only wear make up once a week and people at work think I've got a big event when I blow dry my hair.

I eat peanut butter every day and offer to let folks pay me in pie. Ben and I spend our days rattling around our house and picking our nose.

And the Noble Pig's favorite--we got married at a barbecue restaurant.

But if Ben can evolve and make tasty things like meat pies, I should ante up.




So I made a quiche.

I've made quiches before, but this time I got fancy. I added pepperoni, inspired by a recipe out of a magazine.


Sizing for photographic purposes only....(right)
It was tasty.

It was wonderful.

It made me feel like a real lady. I had a side of fruit and everything.



However, I don't think it made me any more cultured. While I adore quiche, I'll mow someone down for a bacon cheeseburger any day.





As my dear Daddy always said, act like you've been to town before.

I really need to stop reading your food posts when I'm hungry. I'm staring at the apple on my desk and cursing it for not being meat. Damn apple!

Lo said...

Well, look at that. There's some real cooking going on at your house!

Those are some great looking pies. And I have to agree with "Noble Pig"... that BBQ story is priceless!

Aren't you lucky? Wow, a recipe re-do is always a treat!

I think I would let someone pay me in pie too, sounds good.

Ive always wondered what a meat pie was, it looks a lot like an empanada.

Judy said...

When's dinner??? All of it looks totally yummy!! BTW, you left a comment on my blog about how long I have been doing collages -- a couple of years. Only been doing this art work since my DDH passed away almost 4 years ago now. I am lovin' being able to do my thing these days.

"Act like you've been to town before!" I love it! I've got to check out meat pies. There's not a non-carnivore in my house. Dammit! There's no leftover meat in the fridge; Patrick ate it all! (But I still wouldn't eat tofu for a meat pie; sorry!)

Bunny said...

Ooh, lucky little group eating all that good food. We'll be back for Pickles tomorrow. I've got to get caught up on my emails, Miss Duck.

Lore said...

I wouldn't know what to eat first, a slice of quiche or a mini-meat pie so I think I'd take a bite of both and munch happily before a refill :D
Your wedding sounds like the dream wedding to me ;)
Thanks again for sharing your story!

Quiche, meat pies, peanut butter crowns . . . Duckie I love you as always. My goodness but you are becoming very popular! I hope you will still remember me when! You're on your way sweet girl! I'd take payment in pie any day of the week. I wish Todd could make pie, but then again . . . he does the dishes so musn't complain! I'll make the pie any day of the week just so long as someone else does the dishes! XXOO

And don't know what I like the most, your hubby's meat pies (perfect by the way), your yummy looking quiche, your doggie or that cracker on your forehead...
