No formal blog today – but just wanted to share with you a  couple of pictures from our dinner to celebrate “Burns Night”….

We aren’t Scottish, but do you need to be Scottish to eat haggis? We have really good friends in Scotland and we toasted their health as we ate what we had prepared. The Haggis was bought locally from the butchers and we also bought individual portions – as we decided one for 4-5 people was a little extravagant, when Rory was just having a pork chop and wouldn’t even try…

Cooked in the oven, wrapped in foil and in a bath of water for around 55minutes and the Haggis was cooked to perfection. We served with Ian’s amazing roast potatoes and mashed carrots and turnips (Neeps). The sauce was a combination of double cream, Wholegrain dijon mustard, whiskey and salt and pepper to taste.  A little rich and strong for my pallet and I only had/tasted a little, but complimented the Haggis really well…

If you did or didn’t have Haggis to celebrate Burns Night – hope you have/had a good night…
