Mid-terrace pie

Another looooong day in the office.  Got in before eight.  Left after eight.  Fortunately I don’t often have to work such long days, which is just as well, as there’s a part of me that really resents spending more than twelve hours in the office.

At about half-six, I rang my OH to say I’d be working late, I’d probably be grumpy when I finally got home and not to worry about food because I’d fend.

I rang again at half-eight to say I was leaving, and he let slip that he’d been cooking.  And not just any old cooking.  Mid-terrace pie, my all-time favourite comfort food.

What is this mid-terrace pie?  It’s our veggie version of cottage pie, so named because we live in a mid-terrace not a cottage.

As for my run, inspired by all your supportive comments, I took care of that on the way home from the bus stop.  Work clothes, silly backpack and a brolly.  Pure Juneathon.

    We had the meat version of mid terraced pie tonight. Except I only had new spuds so I suppose it was just mince and tatties!

      It’s usually and onion, mushroom and tomato based sauce with either mixed beans or quorn. Today’s was a scrummy one with courgettes, aubergine and peppers.

    Ooh, I do like the sound of that mid-terrace pie. Bless him for looking after you and knowing just what you’d need. 🙂

  11. Men who can cook have always been a priority in my life, hang on to him! I always love to picture your run homes from work…I’d be the crabby old witch screaming abuse as I staggered through 🙂

    I know cottage pie, but what the heck is a “brolly?” Quick thinking there, to run home from the bus stop… after such a long day, too!
