Salty sea dog pies

She asks me what I want for lunch and I say 'pie!' knowing that's not going to happen. So I tone it down to 'a duck egg.' Then I say 'or...... egg pie but with crumble topping, ooh and cheese in it and a tiny bit of white sauce and, and tuna!'

I'm out of bed and in the kitchen while (in my mind) she lies back, grinning and folding her hands thinking; '...and that's how you get lunch made for you.'

In the time it took to boil two duck eggs (4minutes), the bechamel sauce is done and the herby crumble topping is done. And thus were the salty sea dog pies born.
