Haggis, fried cabbage and sweet potatoes. Lovely and no I'm not Scottish.

I’m having haggis tomorrow. Vegetarian haggis, mind. I’ve not tried it before and was curious. Bit worried the absence of lung might take something away from the dining experience.

Had a "healthy" fry up dinner last night, with very limited frying.

Grilled sausage
Scrambled eggs
Fried tomatoes and mushrooms
Beans
Avocado

Very nice indeed.

i understand WHU independent's point about texture of the stuff vegetarians eat and it's a fair one, but i still think that a vegetarian version of something made entirely by sheep is nonsensical.

what was it actually made of?
a colleague loved it, i asked him this very question and he went like... err... veggies i suppose...
****




(yes this is more against my colleague than it is against veggies and vegetarian haggis, cos he's a bloody idiot, but i'm really still curious about what's in it. i mean, its composition could be literally everything non-meaty, and could vary every time...)

I'd guess it's chopped root vegetables, oatmeal, barley & spices.

Dunno yet, this week's been all screwed up, so looks like it's going to be tomorrow. Burn's night, fittingly enough.

I have Haggis penciled in for tomorrow's dinner as well, with Neeps and Tatties. Washed down with a can of reduced sugar iron bru.

Not dinner but yesterday morning I made a sausage sandwich, but put fried onions and brown sauce in it.

It was quite possibly the best sausage sandwich I've ever had.

I made haggis bolognese this afternoon. Sure that would upset both the jocks and the Eye-talians.

not if it is good it wouldn't!
haggis and tomato sauce seems a bit odd but not sure why, i'd give it a go.

Plenty of eye-ties settled in scotchland. I reckon haggis ragu sounds bloody lovely.

Anyway:

Friday - curry
Saturday - curry
Tonight - roast beef
