Visit Scotland Burns Night tips

Are you all organised for Burns Night on Wednesday? I am as I’m stocked up with various veggies, beans and lentils, not forgetting black pepper, the main flavouring of haggis. Yes I’m making my own version of haggis again.

In fact we’re going to another Burns Supper on Thursday night too, that’ll be a traditional haggis, turnip and tatties I think, but no dancing will be going on.

If you want to know what should happen at a traditional Burns Night have a look at Visit Scotland’s Burns Night tips. You can even see some wee videos of the dancing involved, that’s the easiest way of experiencing it – armchair dancing, the real thing is absolutely exhausting!

Burns Supper

Did you go out to a Burns Supper or did you have a quiet one at home? It’s absolutely donkey’s years since we went to a real Burns Supper but I always have haggis, neeps and tatties on January the 25th. So feast your eyes. If you can see it through the steam!

Haggis for Burns Night

Well, maybe not. Haggis is not the most appetising of foods and it doesn’t do to dwell too much on the ingredients, but this haggis is a vegetarian one, much more pleasant all round and it tastes much the same as the real thing.

So we had a quiet night in. What about you, were you addressing the haggis – or just eating it?
