Scottish IsHappy Burns Night to all my friends and family back home in Bonnie Scotland! Robert Burns was a famous Scottish Poet (he wrote Auld Lang Syne) and his birthday (Jan 25th) is usually celebrated with a traditional Burns Supper of haggis, neeps and tatties, and usually too much to drink!
The Selkirk Grace always starts off the meal:
Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
And sae let the Lord be thankit.
And while we're on a Scottish kick, I couldn't resist posting this clip:
In honour of Burns Night I'll be sitting down to a glass or two of overpriced Irn Bru! If you're ever in Publix, keep an eye out for the fluorescent orange glow of Irn Bru (its usually in the teeny tiny Brit food section). I won't even try and describe the flavour - you'll just have to try it.
