shut yer piehole

along with bunghole and poppycock, piehole is one of my favorite words that sounds dirty but has a legitimate non-dirty meaning. most of y'all know it means "shut up" in slang. some suspect it comes from an urban legend of someone winning a pie eating contest. i suspect it has something to do with the hole in the center of a pie that allows the steam to vent.
regardless of this colloquialisms origin, you should open your piehole and try this pie. this is a tester post for bianca's root veggie seitan pot pie-(whew!) saying it alone is a mouthful. of course, i'm sworn to secrecy and cannot divulge the recipe, but i guess one can surmise by the name of the dish that it is a gorgeous flaky pot pie filled with seitan and root veggies that have been bathing in a tasty gravy of sorts. just look at that cross section! aren't you salivating? you should be.

this kicks all other pot pies asses. seriously, one bite and you'll never open your pie hole again. wait--of course you will. you'll open it again and again until it's gone.

her southern vegan cookbook is in the works and the release date is TBA. you can find out more about bianca by visiting her awesome blog, or meeting her at the vida vegan con in august 2011.

Mmm! I love root veggies!

I'm still making my way through the alphabet and haven't yet gotten to "Vegan Crunk" to catch up on Bianca's posts. Thanks for the reminder that I need to just jump forward and go see what's up with her!

Must be fun testing recipes! It's like being in on a fun little secret. :-)
