66 percent Burns [Jan. 24th, 2010|10:49 pm]

So having been to a housewarming party featuring haggis on Friday, tonight Julia and I cooked haggis for ourselves and for Frankie and Alison Nolj, followed by fruit salad and cheeses. By contrast with Friday, none of us consumed absurd quantities of whisky.

Mmmm, Haggis.

So that's haggis on Friday and haggis on Sunday, two nights out of three. Tomorrow is the 25th, I'm heading back home, and the evening is unlikely to feature haggis, boo.

Very Important Edit [23:02] Apparently I'm taking the leftovers with me, so there will be haggis tomorrow. Raar!

I've a McSweens Veggie waiting for tomorrow.
Is it unforgivable to make either gravy, or to steam broccoli with it?

We may also have a wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim'rous beastie in the kitchen, depending on whether one of the cats decides to bring yet another in and let it loose. He doesn't understand how this "mousing" business is supposed to work.

This was a McSweens, but the version for omnivores. We had bashed neeps+carrots and champit tatties with spring onions, and we had gravy-made-from-granules. Our guests were non-whisky-drinking types, so we had a bottle of red.

The only thing that's unforgivable is broccoli -- in any circumstances, independent of the presence of haggis. Julia, of course, takes a different view.

We've removed two resident beasties, because although we have no cats and we have to do the job ourselves, we at least understand how the job is done.

Julia recommends that you show your cats the Tom & Jerry cartoon where the housekeeper says to Tom "it'll be the violin factory for you" and mimes cutting his throat.
