Tonight is Robert Burns night


#1

More pics to come, along with plenty of neeps/taddies/haggis. But to start here is the bread pudding.

Cream cheese and cucumber tea Sammie’s.

Composed caprese salad (thanks @frauenfelder for the excellent Tea book suggestion!)

The neeps

Damn! Another year gone.

This day, Time winds th’ exhausted chain,
To run the twelvemonth’s length again:
I see, the old bald-pated fellow,
With ardent eyes, complexion sallow,
Adjust the unimpair’d machine,
To wheel the equal, dull routine.

Haggis in pork casings, lagavulin, and tastey cheddar. Many jigs and reels were played afterwards, and the haggis was piped in and stabbed.

The bread pudding was decimated. I used a common recipe and would be happy to share. The haggis and tatties were all consumed, along with the fish, but the turnips were not.
