10th March was Sarah’s birthday, well the anniversary if you will be pedantic; so I was commissioned to cook if not her favourite dinner, one of them. My world renowned “Fishermans Pie”; I make this very rarely now and usually only at DD’s request, the WO knows the amount of time and labour that goes into preparing this dish so she no longer requests it. I was to do this on Sunday the 11th as she was going out for dinner with her friends on the actual day.
This time I had to make it for 8 so there was twice as much work as normal. And the WO suggested that I make some of my equally world renowned sausage rolls to keep the hunger pains away while they were waiting for the pie. I’m just glad and thankful that I didn’t have to bake the cake as well. I suppose I spent 5 hours or more in the kitchen and at my time of life I cannot think of anything worse.
Everybody enjoyed the pie (and the rolls) but when it came time to eat I was too tired and did not eat anything, I was past eating and enjoying food by this stage. I did eat a small slice of the birthday cake which I did not make and enjoyed that with a cup of tea.
The War Office thinks cooking something like this is getting too much for me and I’m inclined to agree with her for once, so I announced that this was the last “FP” that I was going to make; Sarah wants me to write the recipe out for her, so that she can carry on the tradition of my World Famous ‘Fishermans Pie’; well we all think it should be 🙂
