Pie Dishes

Mason Cash Pie Dishes

The clock has ticked just past midnight and I can’t get off to sleep! I’ve lain there two hours now trying to reach the land of nod and all I’ve done is toss and turn, I’ve turned my pillows over several times. I plumped the pillows, I’ve punched the pillows, eventually I threw them off the end of the bed and got up!

So, what is keeping me awake on this early January night? Pie Dishes! Yep, pie dishes. You would think after the recent expensive season I’d be worried about paying for it all but thankfully I’m in that rare position of not having to worry about the credit card bill because A) I don’t own one, and B) I paid for my Christmas and New Year in cash! It wasn’t extravagant by any stretch but we had a good feed and a good drink. We enjoyed ourselves!

So, back to pie dishes then. To be even more exact, Mason Cash pie dishes (see image).

It all started Monday when I went into my local supermarket to top up on a few essentials and I noticed they had a piemaker in their sale for £15. Not a bad deal I thought to myself, I love a good home made meat pie and I’m certain this kitchen accessory would do a nice job but being the sort of person I am, I much prefer to have a few pie dishes in my cupboard so that I can make up a few as and when the mood takes me rather than have yet another electric gadget gathering dust on the worktop.

Earlier this evening I started searching the net for what pie dishes were on offer and where I could get a nice deal on some useful and easy to store pie dishes. Lakeland came up with the answer! They have a four Mason Cash pie dish set priced between £7.99 and £13.99 depending on what size and shape you want. This got me thinking of all the yummy meat pies I could concoct and what lovely meals I could enjoy. The thought of meat pie with tatties and veg covered in thick gravy two or three nights a week was beginning to make my mouth water. Chicken and sweetcorn pie, chicken and peas, minced beef and onion, beef and potato, on it goes all with tatties and two or three veg and gravy!

To try and clear my head of all these yummy meals I intend to have once I’ve purchased my pie dishes, because I will purchase four in the very near future, I’ve just had to get up and tell you all about why I can’t get to sleep tonight.

I hope if you are having trouble getting to sleep and you end up reading this that whatever it is keeping you awake is as mundane as the rubbish running around my head these past two hours.
