No, not Scottish, but any excuse for a feast.
Today is Burns Night so time to eat a haggis or two. I love haggis. It is the only ready-made meal I will buy. Macsweens of Edinburgh are the ones to go for. Mind you I've never seen any other brand in England. The ingredient list is short and simple and refreshingly free from junk. Lamb offal, beef fat, oatmeal, water, pepper, salt and spices.
Haggis is stuffed with nutrients -fibre, wholegrains, iron, protein and B vitamins.
Easy to prepare. Simply wrap in foil and put in a baking dish with a little water for an hour.
My favourite part is plunging the knife in and watching the haggis burst out.
We ate it with neeps and tatties -mashed swede (rutabaga) and mashed potatoes. And some gravy leftover from Sunday. Mmmm..mmm. Pity we didn't have any Scotch.
The 25th is the day I show you a picture of The Quince Tree. She's not very interesting in January. But be assured she will improve. Here she is through the year.
