Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 5th January, 2012)
I love pies, I bet this was not smiling for very long. Happy New Year.
What a funny and well spotted photo opportunity. Nice one Colin - let's have a few more like this :)
What's a Lol Pie?
I'd love a good Wigan meat and potato pie, can't get then any where as good as Wigan
What a start to New Year it almost looks to good to eat,but being a born and bred pie eater,no emotion!I would get stuck in and enjoy
Well composed photo.
A lovely to reminder of home when you are away from Wigan..
I can see Russel Grant gazing out of the stars!
Made me smile. It looks a bit like Tintin! Perhaps he was from Wigan and not French at all!
Made me smile straight back at it!!
A smiley pie - nice one. Remember those small oval jellied Bridge Patties folks bought for parties etc, haven't seen any of those for years.
John, Tintin was Belgian. :~)
They're not Bridge patties, I've now remembered they were called Whist patties.
Made me smile too , what a lovely pie! My lolo used to bring pies from Wigan and pork pie is my favorite , makes me crazy!!!!!! Few months back , I downloaded a sad pie from your site and used it as my profile pic in YM , because been sad since he left me here in KWT missin' him crazy like how i'm cravin' for wigan pies.
Cyril, I stand corrected.

Thanks everyone, so pleased you all enjoyed it.... and yes it was good to eat, smiles all round Lol.
Great now i want a pie and there is not a decent pie for for 7000 miles :(
A Guide To The UK's Traditional Foods
A whist pie is simply a small meat pie.
The term seems to belong to Wigan and nearby districts.
Usual question ! Was it a Galloways?
we might be wigan pie eaters but there are not many good pie makers no more galloways yuk, pooles yuk mass produced rubbish,greenalles good but think they mite be made in bolton
Yes Tricia, it was a Galloways chunky steak, it went down well with a pint.
Incer71, people have different taste in life, you may like a certain pub or chipshop other people might not, but one things for sure there were no pies left on the table after midnight, on that new years eve party....and a bit of history for you Incer71, Galloways pies are born and bred in Wigan, the first being on Ormskirk rd, in 1971, it was called "The Pie Shop".
We can get Pukka (should be Yukka) pies here and some called Wrights (should be wrongs!!!)
I still recall Hurst's pies from Church St, Orrell and my relatives, the Sellars Pies, but Galloways will do anytime for me especially the Butter ones, flat minced steak ones and the Meat and Potato ones.
As for the Grennhalghs (?) What dogs doo doos the ones I bought in a certain shop going out of town. My 2 dogs turned their noses up at them as well.
Hope you enjoyed your N Years 'do'
Happy New Year to all.
