Findus crispy pancakes, I remember those! Loved them in my youth!

On a cutter in a CI iron pot on top of MF stove does not make a nice pie! Thought it was pastry as in flaky, more like suet with the taste! Didn't rise! Doughy taste and where was the filling?? Didn't over flow, got about 4 table spoons of minced beef if you could call it that!

Good job I had a lasagne cooking in another pot by the side of it! Finish that off tomorrow!
Halter train the cattle to keep them quiet but watch your back when they come a'bulling! Give them all names even those you plan to eat. Always be calm. Most importantly, invest in wellies with steel toe caps and be prepared for the clever cow who knows where the toe caps end!!

Even when you cook them properly in an oven, the bottom is soggy and there's little filling.  That's perhaps why they were given away  :yuck:

Oh dear, sorry to hear that.  They are clearly not as good as they used to be.  Mind, neither am I :/
