March 5, National Pasty Day

I find it odd in the US,
a Cornish dish 
"Pasty"
is celebrated with a "Day".
It is today.
Tasty!

My Mom made the best of the best 
here in the west,
Delight!
Meat, turnip and potato pie
It makes me sigh, 
one bite!

It has been a long while, but I made a pasty today, YUM!

Delightful one, so tasty. I wish you described the dish more or gave more details about this day.

Judi, I had to look up pasty. It looks like the Estonian "pirukas." You probably should have made more than one.

I believe it, most people I talk to haven't a clue what a Pasty is.   I grew up on them, my Dad's favorite food.  My husband didn't like them.  He said pastry is only to be used for dessert with sweet filling.    One pasty is too much for me to eat, very filling, they are huge.   I cut mine in half and have 2 meals.  My attempt isn't pretty but yummy, I haven't made them in years.    My Mom always made extra because my Dad would take them in his lunch and eat them cold.   That's their history, the Cornish miners took them into the mines for lunch.

Ah yes, Judi. The "pirukas" is a lot smaller. That pasty is looks like about seven of the pirukas, maybe more.
