Listen in, listen Ian!
Where and when did you last have a pasty?
A real one, or the rub you get from some supermarkets?
Any pasty, no matter what the quality. The ones in Morrison's are lovely, anyway.
and are we to include any hot food in pastry (like a Greg's slice), or just proper pasties?
I think Gregg's slices are a type of pasty. No sausage rolls though.
pastry wrapped and sealed all round then. Cool.

This morning, for breakfast. I wanted one from here:
but they weren't open yet, so I had one from here:
I will not make that substitution again.
I think this is my favourite recent poll. The answers are making me happy.
I love a pasty, but try not to have them often. Always go for the medium traditional. The last time I had a cheese and onion pasty was in Aberystwyth in March 1996 and it's still repeating so never again.
If, per my poll answer, random things in a pasty shape count, I think we had pasties on Free Food Friday1 at work last month - traditional, pork and apple, cheese and onion, and something else I forget. I had pork and apple, because they had mostly all gone by the time I went downstairs
If it needs to be vaguely traditional, fuck knows. Years and years.
1 Roughly the last Friday of every month (with some minor modifications), work buys sufficient food to give everyone in the office something vaguely edible. This ranges from some really nice things - like getting the local Mexican lunch van to come round and cook our individual orders - through to some slightly less pleasant attempts. There was one involving frankfurter sausages. Err, yum. They usually do pretty well in terms of veggie friendly, and sorting something out for the one member of the office who is gluten intolerant. A few months back, they ordered some high-class sandwiches, but everything was covered with cheese. I'm not lactose intolerant - I just don't like most cheeses you can actually taste. (I can ignore the yellow plastic on fast food burgers.)
I always like it when Americans on the internet say "look, look - here is a hilarious misspelling of 'pastry'". A [NSFW] Google image search for 'pasties' illustrates nicely the difference between the meanings of the word here and in the US.
Though I'd quite like to see pasties in the shape of pasties.
I do not approve of pasty really. I am not keen on savoury pastry and the amount of pastry to filling is ALL WRONG.
Good luck to the Reds on Sunday! Please could you add my new journal at turk152
? Thanks so much.
