Made my chicken and ham pie filling today and it was quite complicated and I needed to concentrate but it came out okay and it smells good.
I have the mega-complex issue of pastry later, and I will have a strong cup of tea prior to that (you have to know it is ready made; not like I am making my own, and it's still feelin' complex). Had to buy a rolling pin in Sainsbury's and I was nervous in case some sort of woman-alarm went off and I got escorted from the store for non-chap type purchasing!
A pre-oven picture is here (2 in fact).
Okay: Pastry complete. Man that flour gets everywhere! I made a right old mess rolling out pastry. It's a complex business but I think I did okay. The pie is covered and I brushed it with egg, possibly a bit heavily. I tried to make a pastry space ship to go on the top but was unequal to the task.
