Mmmmmm Potato and Meat Pie

(viewed 1659 times)
Bookmark and Share
Went home to see my dad today and ended up walking around the local
market, where I have not been for best part of 20 years, if not more.

I saw this pie and it was a must have item.. Mainly because it is so big!

That is my hand next to it for scale..

Should keep me going for a day or two

mmmmmmm pie.

Not bad for 2 and a half quid.. If it is as good as the little one I had for lunch it will be well tasty..

I'm going to measure it and get the actual dimensions rather than just my hand for scale..

Or I could of course use the dog named Borris as the scale, it worked for my kites but I'm not too sure about the chances of success with the pie!

Joe says:

dog + pie = heartache

don't do it!

3rd Oct 2006, 16:52

I won't, I value the pie...

For the record, using my special pie measuring ruler, the dimensions are:

10 inches in diameter
2 inches deep
and it weighs in at 3lb exactly!

I *love* pie

i'm impressed about the precise weight. i like to think that the baker knew exactly what he was doing, and was aiming for that.

plus: kudos for the use of imperial dimensions!

m_f, are there any other dimensions?

Inches, Links, Feet, Yards, Rods, Chains, Furlongs, Miles..

Pint, Quart, Gallon, Peck, Bushell

Ounce, Pound, Stone, Quater, Hundredweight, Ton.

Like poetry.....

well, quite.

i still have trouble working out what a kilometre looks like...

3rd Oct 2006, 17:14

Joe says:

it looks like 1.6 miles :D

3rd Oct 2006, 17:15

Joe says:

oh no, thats not right

now I look stupid

nothing new there then....

as you where

3rd Oct 2006, 17:16

Kilometers look like nothing to me because I refuse to use them, totally.

I can pace a mile to reasonable accuracy..

SFG is the pie man!

i was going to say something joe, but was afeared of appearing, as we say here in my office, an 'arse'.

i think the ratio is the other way round.

Use the empty pie dish with Borris for scale.
