Mosaic Monday - Robbie Burns Day
The pipers brought in the head table followed by the haggis which traditionally consists of sheep's internal organ meats, toasted oatmeal, suet, onions and spices in a sheep's stomach. Many places use beef liver or ground beef instead of lamb and just a casing to bake it all in.
The Selkirk Grace as seen here was said and dinner of roast beef, mashed potatoes (champit tatties), mashed turnip (bashed neaps), greeen peas, cabbage salad with homemade baps was enjoyed.
You'll have to enlarge the picture to see my dinner plate a little better but I did manage a nice big photo of the Scottish shortbread had with coffee afterwards.
Pretty pink Scotch heather was on each table and I've shown my Scottish thistle kilt pin here as well.
We don't have a Scottish background but do like to support the legion for their fund raising dinners.
Mary hosts Mosaic Monday each week and the 25th is her birthday so be sure to send her best wishes when you visit The Little Red House.
