Double Pie



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).

pie&pieI 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
  • Cutie pie
  • 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!
