Yoop, I had a Pasty for Lunch!
 
It was disappointing. I got it at my grocery store. It came from The Pasty Oven, Quinnesec, MI.

http://www.pastys.com/index.html

It was semi frozen and I baked it for 45 minutes...

The crust was great flakey and tasty, but overall the beef/pork was pretty bland. I ended up slitting it open and shaking on some Old Bay.

If you think of it, wouldja bring me a real one on your way down here? I'd lurve you long time if you did.

:D

When you mention "Yoop" and "Pasty" in the same sentence, food is not what I had in mind. :D

Those are pretty common in northern and central California, pretty much anywhere there once was a deep shaft mining community with a large Cornish population. Apparently they were a traditional meal for miners, with meat, vegetables and even fruit cooked into separate pockets in the same piece of dough. Usually, the predominant seasonings are onion and black pepper and they are a bit bland.

Last year I had a few in Bath, England...there were several pasty shops that sold a wide variety. They were pretty much the same as the ones in California. You may have had a "real one!"

Oh come on Rev what would you expect from a store bought Pasty shame on you. Just get in your car and head towards the bridge I am sure they don't have that much snow up that way.

MMMMKay. I'll bring pasties for you. Remind me about 5 days before Christmas, and I'll go get some and stick them in the freezer. I'll bring a few- my dad and brother want some too. But........my memory sucks. I'm serious about reminding me.

At least that will be an incentive for you to meet up with me!

Yours ended up staying in Sause's car! We all forgot about it and he had them in his car when he went home!

Speaking of pasties, was in the UP this summer and thought the pasties at the Taquahmenon Falls brewpub were quite good. But was a week or two too early for the Blueberry Wheat. Did pick enough wild blueberries for a pie or two, they were wonderful. And had my first ever taste of thimbleberries; walked through all kinds of woods finding, picking and eating them. Yooper, have you ever added thimbleberries to an ale?

I love thimbleberries, but never added them to beer. But, to be honest, I am one of the few women in the world who think the words "fruit" and "beer" should never be in the same sentence, let alone the same glass.

Yep, Short Drive, your pasties remained in Sause's car as well. I'm pretty sure Brewmeister Jeff wanted some, too. Sause cleaned up with a lifetime supply of frozen pasties!
