    I know this is probably sacrilege but I really do not like Burns poetry! We do like haggis though and will have it for tea this week, just not tonight!

    I had my Burns supper a couple of days early on Sunday night with my family - I had garlic mash with mines (my sister was horrified:haha:) and whisky gravy! mmmmmm :) And oatcakes with smoked salmon for a starter.
    I love chicken breasts stuffed with haggis too... do you call it Balmoral Chicken?

    Its a scottish tradition, everyone gets together and eats haggis and reads poems by Robert Burns, to celebrate his life and death.

    yea :flower: but i dont like whiskey so i make a peppercorn sauce xx
