To celebrate National Pie Week I decided to visit my good friend Finbar Fungus who’s an expert on all things mushroom and a jolly good pie chef.
We kicked off on Monday with a wild mushroom pie after spending the best part of the day foraging in Worm’s Wood near Middleton-on-Sea, followed by Quorn mince on Tuesday then chestnut and wild garlic on Wednesday, which, I regret to write, is where our pie extravaganza came to a shuddering halt.
The afore mentioned Wednesday pie resulted in both myself and Finbar suffering severe gastric disturbances giving rise to thunderous blow offs throughout Thursday. I was pretty careful and kept my windy activities to the garden but Finbar let one rip near a naked candle and ended up setting fire to his sitting room curtains.
I grabbed for a bucket of water but Finbar, in a momentary state of panic, threw his library book into the blazing drapery. What the heck he was thinking will remain a mystery, although I did catch him muttering some days earlier about Fictional Westerns being shelved incorrectly in the Medieval History section.
We spent a quiet Friday in town visiting the public library with a letter of apology, the drapers with measurements for new curtains and the chemist with a query regarding herbal remedies for flatulence.
All things considered we’ve decided to rename the Friday of National Pie Week as National Indigestion Day!
Hope you’ve had a lovely week.
