Had me Tatties Neeps and Haggis tonight.

Washed down with a can of IRN BRU!

Was at work unfortuanately. So the whisky was missed.

There were a few of us with different recipies of Haggis. which made for a good tasting session.

My own butchers. Andersons of East Linton was a rather stodgy/spicy concotion. "McSweens" was a rougher smoother lightly spiced taste. and "Halls" is the catch all to everyones taste.(Factory produced).

Who is this "Burns" fellow and did he invent his magnificent dish. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thanks JSG72, I'm intending to start again soon.

Re the Rapide on your post. I too flew in one of those when I was about 7 years old (1969-ish) We flew from Lands End airfield around the Lizard Point in Cornwall to see the Basking sharks. I can still remember refusing to cross over the aisle to my Dads seat as I was convinced I'd fall through the floor!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

No other adverse effects in adult life other than addiction to a flight sim then? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Haggis is one thing I'm gonna sorely miss when I move to Denmark next month. Ye canny beat a good old deep fried haggis supper!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

I was down in Battle Village back in October doing the re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings, and I went to the chippie there, and I looked at the range to see what was on, and no haggis was to be spied, so I looked at the menu to see if haggis was on it. No sign of the thing, so I looked to see if there was another menu. Nope, no other menu hiding away somewhere. Then it dawned on me - I WAS IN ENGLAND!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif I was so used to chippy's in Glasgow (and most places in Scotland) having haggis ready and waiting that I hadn't realised that you wouldn't be likely to get haggis in an english chippie in the far south. I was shocked and much disheartened coz I really fancied a haggis to go with me 10 bottles of Grolsch afore I went to bed.

Haggis is a wonderful thing!! Unfortunately I missed the celebrations on the day due to work, so my lassie is cooking me a haggis dinner on Sunday with all the trimmings! But it's such a pity I can no longer drink spirits otherwise I'd be having a dram or two of Balvenie to wash the guid meal down.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Charles Dickens was there already: '...finest Finnan haddock...and Haggis like Cupid's stomach'.
Cannot remember if this was 'Bagman's Uncle' or sumpin.
