Have you ever seen someone advertise an event and state “pie & peas”?
This is pie and peas. The pie has a thick short crust pastry. The peas are mushy (preferably soaked for at least a day). You can also add gravy and mint sauce to taste. Being vegetarian I will have a veggie pie (Quorn is preferred). It’s a staple of pub cuisine, and often served by working men’s clubs.
So, when I get offered pie and peas and find this offered my disappointment can’t be contained.
The marrowfat peas redeem it somewhat, but it’s not what I associate with being pie and peas. Worse when it’s garden peas. That is an abomination.
The biggest abomination, however, is when you get promised pie and peas (with vegetarian option) only to find the vegetarian “pie” is a fucking nut roast.
That, sir, is how you insult every vegetarian in one fell swoop.
