Tonight we're having an early St Andrew's Day (tomorrow) celebration meal, with haggis, neeps and tattles.

For the haggis we always favour Macsween's, and tonight the pair of us are going to be eating the 2-3 person version. It can be cooked in the microwave, but I find that can be uneven/unreliable. So even though it takes yonks I prefer to wrap the haggis in foil, and cook it in the oven in a water bath for 75 minutes.

Strictly speaking for the neeps we should be eating swedes which are not the same as general turnips. But for convenience we've got microwave veg, and it looks like it's normal turnips. Plus mashed potato (tatties).

Haggis is often served with whisky sauce, but we're not doing that this time. I may have some whisky though ...

 

What goes into whisky sauce? Being from the far coast of the US originally, I'm not too familiar. Is it just whisky and some other base?

Whisky was one of the only nouns I recognized in that post! :-P

Whisky sauce is mostly double cream, spiced up with mustard and a dram or two.

 

I made pork stew for supper. The meat had been sitting overnight in a mix of cider vinegar, smoked paprika, garlic and chipotle. I fried it with a mirepoix (or soffrito) then added peppers and potatoes and stewed it slowly for three hours. Nom.

I went to a Burns Night party a few years back; didn't touch the haggis, but drank an unfeasible amount of whisky and declaimed Burns' Salute to the Haggis in an outrageous fake Scots accent.

Going home to enjoy some slow cooked beef stew in a giant Yorkshire pudding. How very British :)

A 5-Way Cincinnati chili (it's a Mediterranean sort of thing), with ouzo on ice (a kind of poor-man's absinthe...)

Black tea with cream and sugar; a strawberry pop tart.  Probably not a great idea for lunch.

Strawberry pop tarts are shoggoth slime, the refuse that remains after you buy a case of mixed pop tarts and eat the rest :-P They're not a good meal anytime, unless you need an emetic in pinch :-P I, with my more refined palate, had CINNAMON pop tarts for lunch. #teamdcinnamon

Wow, some cookies-and-cream poptarts sound really good right now, now that you mention poptarts, but I haven't got any and don't feel like shopping.

 

Alas, today instead is a leftovers with water day.

I'm class'n it up a sugar rush with some home-made short-bread cookies, chocolate dipped truffles and washing it down with hot egg.

You can't spell delicious without eldritch.

Well, you can in English, but not in Yithian.

Not "right now", but while Helen and I are currently both rather afflicted with post-Christmas colds, I found the following footage on my phone relating to post #28 (Steam Train Afternoon Tea, August Bank Holiday), and thought I'd share.

 

 

Now back to enduring the lurgy!

Just back from weekend supermarket shop. Had a nice lunch in cafe there - cheese omelette with side salad. But I think what I had afterwards, at the Angus Gateway on the edge of Dundee, is even better. Luxury hot chocolate. Massive.

Ok as an addendum to earlier I've just tried the Ice Cider which we have in house. It's from the Somerset Cider Brandy Company, though they're out of stock of it at the moment. We bought ours a few months ago, with lots more cider products. As the makers say:

 

 

Ice Cider is made by freezing the apple juice and removing the ice. The remaining naturally concentrated juice is then fermented into Ice Cider. It has a unique flavour that combines bitter-sweet and sharp qualities found in a traditional vintage cider apple.

Described by a friend as "cider on steroids". It is a wonderful product.

 

 

It is very good and I recommend it to any lovers of cider/apple products. It's very alcoholic, but doesn't taste whisky-like like a cider brandy. Rather it's like very strong tasty apple juice, that happens to be alcoholic too. A hit with Scottish me and my Somerset husband.

I'm about to make a chick pea, cauliflower, potato and assorted veggie curry with brown rice.

Drinking probably a Coke Zero or perhaps iced black tea with ginger and lemon.
