Pasty, chips and mushy peas, please …

So, for this week’s Friday Food Fight I’m throwing a pasty, chips and mushy peas at y’all.  My mum surprised us with this yummy comfort dish t’other night.  All homemade … totally from scratch.  Which makes me wonder where on earth that phrase comes from.  Made from scratch??  Scratch what?

Anyway, sorry there’s no recipe, but it’s top secret … as are most of my mother’s recipes.  *sigh*
