"I feel like a pie" has a completely different meaning in New Zealand than it does in the States.
When a Kiwi talks about pies, we're most likely thinking about savoury meat pies: the kind with delicious mince and gravy wrapped in flakey short pastry. All buttery and greasey and just what you feel like on a Sunday morning after
But from what I understand, in the USA, "pies" are generally sweet, like pecan pies, pumpkin pie, peanut butter pie. Drool. I've only recently been introduced to this magical world of American sweet pies thanks to Sweet Mothers Kitchen. Ermahgerd how good is that place??!? Totally obsessed.
So to further fuel my obsession and because it was becoming embarrassing how often I go to walk past the place and find myself walking out with a slice of pie, I decided to create a Kiwi-ized version of the southern Sweet Potato Pie - a Maple Kumara Pie.
Just as a side note, in New Zealand we tend to call sweet pies "tarts". But I guess "I feel like a tart" has a double meaning also...
