Jevington rather than Eastbourne according to Wiki, but that seems to be the story.


Wow. I always pictured Banoffie Pie as something that would have been eaten in America in the 50s. It seems less exotic now. Sad

In fact, Eastbourne may be the only town I've never eaten Banoffie pie in. (of those that I've been to, that is. I'm not some pie obsessed miscreant travelling the world in search of the perfect banoffie, and anyone who says I am is lying.)

I once dropped a Trebor XXX mint into a large glass of coke, and it produced this thick black foam that never ever went away even if you poked at it with a straw.

Mind you, hearing that highway patrolmen keep a couple of bottles of coke in the boot for cleaning up bloodstains off the pavement came in useful after I'd sleepily bought a bottle of full sugar pepsi at a service station thinking it was pepsi max, and was wondering what on earth I could do with it as I had no intention of drinking it, and after paying service station prices was loath to just bin it, when lo and behold my mum manages to spill a load of blood on the patio. Worked a treat.

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered...

Do savoury pies work for you too Andy?


As long as they're vegetarian. It's quite hard to find a decent veggie pie that isn't either designed to be mostly air and no filling, or designed to spray its contents exorcist style across in the inside of the oven before the pastry finishes cooking, and end up mostly air and no filling. A problem I've never ever had with vegetable pasties, which surely are just a different shape of pie. Go figure.

I haven't done any proper cooking in a while. But I did sort through the cupboards yesterday to find all the out of date stuff, so there may be some creative recipes coming up this week. What can I make with two packets of chestnuts, sixteen tins of peeled plum tomatoes, and three boxes of meringues?

Haha. I did that at school once.
Rather than being given recipes, they started giving us themes and making us find our own recipes, and I just used to grab a handful of things out of the cupboards and then make up a recipe on the bus.
Once I concocted a custard containing hidden chunks of oat crumble, with a lemon meringue topping. And what are you making, asked the teacher? Albanian Surprise, said I, without batting an eyelid? What's that then, asked the teacher? I described it. And how are you reducing the sugar in that, asked the teacher, for such was the theme of that week's cooking. I haven't brought any, I replied. How are you going to make meringue without any sugar, mocked the teacher? It's an old family secret, reassured I. And then, when she went to the staff room for her coffee at break time, I got some sugar out of the cupboard and added it. She never twigged.


Ironically, last week, my Mum made a lemon meringue pie and forgot to put any sugar in the meringue and it turned out just fine.

That sentence is really scary without an explanation to go with it!

What? Are you saying my mum chops people up and puts them in pies? Are you calling my mum Sweeney Todd? Is she the demon barber of puzzlefiles? Is my dad buried under the patio? Are you calling my mum a fan of Brookside? Look at my face. Am I bovvered?
