Robert Burns Birthday
So, today is Robert Burns birthday. A good time to try your hand at a few Scottish recipes. Even if you’ve never heard of him, I’ll just bet you’ve heard of something he wrote and most likely sing it once a year. He was the author of “For Auld Lang Syne.”
His life was rather turbulent and his laudability can be argued, but he left behind a large body of work. It is traditional on his birthday to celebrate with haggis and whiskey. Haggis has received a lot of bad P.R. over the years. In actuality it’s really nothing more than a meat loaf cooked a sheep’s stomach instead of a dish. Ah come on … don’t wrinkle up your nose. You eat sausages and they’re cooked in sheep’s intestines.
