Having not eaten a Fray Bentos pie in my life I thought I should try one, but in the supermarket one caught my eye a steak and kidney pudding I haven't had one for a long time.
After reading the cooking instructions I thought numbnuts could do that so I bought it.
Today Sunday I prepared my two favourite vegetables brussels and cauliflower cheese to go with the pudding at least if the pudding is crap the vegetables won't be and I have lemon tart for dessert.
Well what can I say......not a lot, the nice fluffy suet crust that my mother made years ago was like wet cardboard, I had to leave half of it, the meat and gravy was not too bad with a pleasant taste.
Would I buy again at £1.50 it's good value if you didn't know how to cook, but as I do the answer has to be no, but I'll still give it 5/10 (that's only if I'm not ill during the night) xx(
I might try a pie next week.

An admirable sense of adventure displayed there. It's that type of spirit that won us an empire. :notworthy:
