Arse over tit!

Trelawnyd seems a bit dead this morning

I'm running late today....everything is "arse over tit"
Firstly the Prof still wasn't 100% overnight , so kept us both awake.
Secondly I have just made gravy for a chicken and mushroom pie using fish stock
And thirdly I am working this evening, so will miss the first episode of The Walking Dead!
How can the world be so cruel? 

Anyhow , the chicken pie has been finally made. The Prof will be returning home from work early and the satellite box thing will record the zombie apocalypse for me to watch tomorrow night, so barring a powercut things will be fine.........I have read the synopsis of the second half premier anyway, so I know who gets chomped/sliced/ shot ( delete as appropriate) .......my nerves couldn't take the suspenders!

Right like all good country house blogs I shall leave you with a photo of the aforementioned chicken and mushroom pie.....it's magnificent!
Have a good monday all..........

  6. It sure is a beauty, John. I have never mastered a two crust pie, but do OK with the topless kind.

  7. The pie looks scrumptsh! My dear departed Father-in-law always said Arse over Tit. So your post reminded me of him today. Hope Chris feels better soon. I've had a husband with a painful arm for 14 months. So I haven't had a decent night's sleep in about 400! xx

  9. What I am certain of is that that marvellous looking (and tasty) pie will be sliced in pieces, to be shot into your mouth and to be all chomped up. Greetings Maria xx

    4. Oops.. thought they were a clever hint as to the fish stock! I think I'll creep away , lower lip wobbling, and become a 'lurker' again.

  17. does it have a bottom crust?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh, dear. When you exclaimed "arse over tit", then announced you'd made chicken-and-mushroom pie using fish stock, I thought you were admitting a serious slip. The pie looks eatable -- but is the fish stock a Welsh cook's quirk?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Beautiful pie. I am going to gogle a recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  20. You have a hand for the pastry! Mary Berry would be proud!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I will not give a thing away but "Nibble on that...". You will delight in that phrase later.

    Get ready for a nail-biting rousing episode!

  22. Worthy of Mary Berry! (or substitute your favourite dishy cook).
    Never watched your favourite programme - doesn;t sound my sort of thing.

  23. Chicken and mushroom with FISH stock? Looks lovely, though!

  25. I wish I were good at pie crusts. I only do well with apple crumbles.

  26. Pie looks great, love the artwork.

  27. Can't go wrong with a good pie. As long as you don't have a soggy bottom.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The pie looks delicious but are you aware that Albert seems to have left footprints all over it??

    Can't wait for TWD update from you. We don't get the channel on our cable package!

  29. On the theme of not being totally well, has there been any hippo news? I lurk and don't comment but keep looking at your recent hippo post to see if there is anything. The trail seems to have gone cold though....

  31. The new episode of The Walking Dead will surprise you.

  32. Those Trelawnyd residents look a bit rough, especially the one with the hatchet. If I were you, I'd go out with a bodyguard for a while.

  33. Beautiful pie! Must be a bug going round - my son is home from college today with a dicky tum.
