Where did the phrase "Eating humble pie" come from
To eat humble pie is to apologize and/or face humiliation. originated from the dish "umbles pie" which peasants ate in medieval times (umbles are the innards of deer/cow/boar/whatever else was lying around).
Sounds very nice, thanks.
You are very welcome my friend.
I agree with JThomp and like his description of "umbles." In the U.S., we usually call it "eating crow", a dish not too many people would opt for if they had a choice.
