    We had a great family get together for Thankgiving and as always, too much food. I don't know what possessed me, but prior to I asked the Mrs. to pick up an apple pie at Sam's...knowing they are 12" deep dish pies and that our family does not eat a lot of pie. She picked up a pumpkin pie as well (almost as big) because it has been my life favorite and it is Thanksgiving. So, I think one small sliver of apple was eaten by someone other than me, and the pumpkin remained uncut as of this AM. I nuked up some oatmeal and plopped a piece of apple pie on top for breakfast...and will likely be doing the same all week. Man, what a lot of pie! I plainly have a great deal to be thankful for...! ((I may have to freeze the pumpkin pie for Christmas;)))

    I use to eat leftover cold fruit pies for breakfast all the time. Basically a fruit pastry. Add a hot cup of coffee, and you've got a Breakfast of Champions! ;)

    a lot of american food confuses me, esp given modern media exposure of it

    marshmallows and sweet potatoes?
    pumpkin in anything?
    is no one aware of roast potatoes?
    stuffing that just appears to be bread with some drawer lint sprinkled on it?
    yam?

    but pies - *decent* pies - are very good. apple? yes. cherry? double yes. pumpkin? a work of evil

    if you like apple pie, you'll probably like apple crumble. and its loads easier to make

    I had pie with lunch and dinner yesterday. Pie for breakfast? You bet.

    This from Jack Kerouac :

    I ate apple pie and ice cream—it was getting better as I got deeper into Iowa, the pie bigger, the ice cream richer…that’s practically all I ate all the way across the country, I knew it was nutritious and it was delicious, of course.”

    Those Sam’s Apple pies are quite good. I wanted one for Thanksgiving but did not get one. Think I know where I am going today.

    Love some pie for breakfast! And how can apple pie not be good for you?

    Pie for breakfast is a law here on Planet Peegoo. Failure to comply meets with harsh punishment. I like 'em all, but blueberry is my favorite.


    ^^ THIS ^^ is the type of attitude that makes colonists dress up like injuns and dump tea into the harbor :)

    LOL...there are definitely cuisine differences on either side of the pond. We do eat a lot of potatoes at our house, but seldom have them roasted---I'll have to make an effort to cook some up. Stuffing comes in many iterations...depends on the cook and the area of the country. Marshmallows...what can I say? It was probably a mom's attempt to get her kids to eat sweet potatoes?

    What about kidney pie? That is on my "been there, done that" list.

    I've been eating 6 mini fruit mince pies a couple times a week for the past month.
    Hot with thickened full cream. A nice tasty treat at $2 bucks for 6. I'll probably be sick of them by the time Xmas rolls around.

    @stormsedge

    roast potato is one of the greatest things ever, if done correctly. rustling crisp, with fluffy insides. with gravy. (sorry - not that stuff you have, some weird white sauce with bits of sausage in it? what???) ;)

    and kidney pie is actually steak and kidney. its good, but steak and kidney pudding is far superior

    @Peegoo

    you are welcome to do what you will with their tea, as i am Irish. so i know my spuds :)

    but, sorry. pumpkin is a trick played on us by evil spirits. a bit like american beer :)

    Another misconception. There's more good beer than you could possibly imagine.

    I prefer Goodwood FOS and revival. I have a '60 MGA and a '63 Sprite.

    Sprite? From 1963?

    That's not beer!
