Early supper before the football. Greek-style lamb slow cooked in wine, lemon and herbs.

Dinner?

Nothing. But we enjoyed lunch in our favourite tapas restaurant. :)

An excellent antidote to being at home with the noise of three humidifier units and nine air dryers.

My wife asked for French onion soup tonight before she takes to the roads tomorrow to drive home to Cape Cod for Christmas on what just might be the single worse travel day of the year!

Christmas lunch at the wonderful Muse restaurant in Pano Paphos. Fish soup, garlic king prawns with black linguine, white chocolate and almond crêpe with ice cream.

Veggie haggis for me - a complete abomination of a theory but tastes great in practice :lol:

Question: if you were catering for a few people would you order two haggis or two haggises? I’m never sure despite having lived in Scotland for 10 years.

PS. I know pretentious people use Haggi as a pseudo Latinate plural, but I won’t insult your intelligence! :lol:

I’d never use a pseudo-latinate plural :lol:
I think I’d say haggises. They’re solitary creatures, though, so you’d never find two of them out on the hillside at the same time. It makes hunting them difficult but explains why they’re so prized.

^^^^^I believe in the highlands there’s a special breed of haggis with their left legs longer than their right legs. This means they stand up straight on the hills and it prevents them falling over. The secret to catching these is to chase them in the opposite direction so they loose balance.

Yeah, they’re hard to spot because they move so quickly across rough ground. Incidentally, McSween’s - that Neil’s eating tonight - is the only company that hunts these haggis. That’s why they’re considered the best.

^^^ there are indeed Iain. However there is very limited distribution as they are only found in the wilder parts of the Cairngorms. We did encounter a couple when caught in a white out near the summit of Ben Macdui. We took shelter behind a boulder and disturbed them. They were very skittish and lopped off down the hill.

Is there any concensus as to which gender of haggis is better from a culinary standpoint?
