Haggis for dinner

Haggis-Neeps-and-Tatties-0Last night I was out with a bunch of co-workers and one of them suggested that since it was January 25th, that I should have Haggis. Since this was from Fiona, who is Scottish, I considered it. She explained that on January 25, we celebrate Burns Night by eating haggis. No, we did not read Robert Burn’s poem "Ode Tae a Haggis", but I did end up having haggis on a bed of mashed neeps (so did Fiona, so it wasn’t just a trick). And yes, it was good! I think I got lucky thought, since it was thin patty, had mostly oats, and the meat flavor was minimal, which was good since none of us could figure out what “meat” was in it. Read this to understand: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haggis
