I promised to get Thomas a cake but the cafe didn't do cakes. The kind man offered a mince pie. I declined saying that Thomas had never had one and I didn't like them but he insisted that we take a mince pie each "on the house" he said.
I felt too awkward to say no, so took these mince pies. My first ever mince pie. I can never understand why you put raisins in pastry to eat it. I always thought they might taste slightly burnt. I ate the pie and was pleasantly surprised. I quite enjoyed it.
If there is a choice between chocolate cake and mince pie I would still go for the cake but I can now say that I don't mind a mince pie.
So Thomas and I had our first ever mince pies together :-)
