This is it, my lovely blue Aga, heater of kitchen and the cremator of pies........
Up to now everything I've attempted to cook has just about worked, indeed some things have been gorgeous, lovely succulent chickens and the most divine tasting pizzas, but last night we decided to have a chicken and leek pie, one that had been frozen. I will admit it was out of a packet, but when you've been decorating and sorting all day a quick tea is sometimes the order of the day. It said on the packet 40-45 minutes at Gas 6, so I stuffed it into the hot oven and thought to myself I must check this after 30 minutes.........wrong....so very wrong.......I looked after 30 minutes and the topping of charcoal was SO impressive.
So for tea last night it was salad with chicken and leek flan ( I sliced the top off, not as pretty but almost as tasty) and we now know that Sophie (the Collie) loves charcoal!!
