The other day hubby and I sat down for dinner, nothing unusual in that, but today was different, I couldn’t quite put my finger on it to start with, but then I realised, we had eaten double pie! I’m not even sure if this is the right name for it, or even if there is a name for it, but we had eaten chicken pie for our main course and then had an apple pie for dessert.
I named it double pie in honour of the double denim look modelled here by Chuck Norris.
Anyway, I digress, I’m not a huge fan of pastry, which makes it surprising that I had one pie that night, let alone two, but I do like the fillings and the accompaniments, especially for the dessert.
Even if there is or is not a debate about double pie for tea, there has always been a heated debate in our household over cream, ice cream or custard over a dessert pie. I always plump for custard, I mean, you have to have something hot poured over a pie, right? But hubby always go for ice cream, with maybe some cream on top of that. (He has a very sweet tooth).
I did Google the term, “Double Pie,” and got this: How to create pie of pie or bar of pie chart in Excel … confused, this is what it looks like:
And Lakeland have a double pie maker called the Gourmet Gadgetry Retro Diner Double Pie Maker – costs just £29.99 if you’re interested! (I have linked it for you – no, I’m not on commission.)
So I don’t think the term, double pie, is a common phrase – yet, there’s no mention of it in the Oxford English dictionary, perhaps I could lay claim to it?
Whilst researching pies, (unbelievably I did), I never realised there were so many idioms which featured the word, “Pie.”
As easy as pie
To eat humble pie
To be pie eyed
Have a finger in the pie
Nice as pie
Shut your pie hole
Promises are like pie crusts, they’re made to be broken
Pie in the sky
Can you think of any more?
All this talk of pie, has actually made me quite hungry, but I don’t think it’ll be double pie tonight, just the single one will do me fine!
