This is an interesting point to bring up in a discussion, partially, at least, on pasties -- the funeral baked meats are probably already in the form of pies, now being served cold the next day, and it was pretty much exactly Shakespeare's time that pies were being used as a means of air-exclusion for meat preservation...

I guess my point is that you may not wanna use Shakespeare's reference to baked meats as a source for leftovers [which could then be made into pies -- they already are, most likely].
