Yeah, I know, I guess I just think it’s more fun to find food we recognize that’s gone wrong somehow.
My sister just came back from two weeks in Scotland. She’d been on a diet for several months beforehand, and lost almost 30 pounds. So when she left for Europe she decided she wouldn’t diet while on vacation.
She lost weight in Scotland
I can believe that, because Scotland.
That is exactly why lol
It’s not delivery, it’s Disgusting.
(Actually I am in camp pineapple, but only on top of tomato sauce. “Creamy garlic sauce” is probably not something I want to eat because I don’t like strong garlic flavor.)
Yeah, I can accept this. There was one cafe near us, long since shuttered, that made some tasty Scotch Eggs (sans casserole), but I can’t picture eating that every day.
Nothing wrong with a properly made haggis.
The abomination sold in the USA with the same name, on the other hand, is best avoided.
A good haggis is a marvelous thing.
I heard about this today. Paqui had the “One Chip Challenge” which is a chip flavored with Carolina Reaper Pepper and Naga Viper Pepper.
Yeah, that’s too spicy for me. And if it actually caused someone’s death…
My sister said in Scotland all the haggis they got (three orders total) was crumbled, over potatoes I think? Is that how it’s usually served there? I always pictured it more sliced like meatloaf.
May as well just squirt some pepper spray into your mouth…
When you buy it , it is a solid, meat-loafy kind of feel which can be sliced, but when heated up, the texture becomes looser with the oats providing the crumb texture.
Traditionally, it is served with tatties (potato) and neeps (rutabaga). Both are mashed, which is fine for potatoes, but a bit boring for the neeps, which can be nice sautéed with sage and butter. Touristy places up the Scottishness with whisky sauce, which I would personally avoid.
I tend to substitute the neeps with roasted pumpkin wedges. Not traditional, but it works.
[sigh] This made me go search for this wonderful rutabaga-topped shepherd’s pie that I’ve made in previous autumns. Looks like the site it’s from is no more. Well, maybe I can just find a good tater-bega mashup recipe and wing it from there, once the weather turns colder.
I believe in you , and it might also be worth a try at the Internet Wayback Machine.
I agree that supermarket peanut butter on white bread is… less than inspiring. But… NO I don’t want ham and peanut butter on the same sandwich!! WTH?!? Really putting the “Nuts” in “Peanut-Nuts” there, Skippy.
This is 1960, by the way. So you can’t even blame it on a bad acid trip in the agency’s work room.
Just the peanut butter and Swiss cheese part. Barf.
Until I saw this ad, I thought Crow was just making up that whole sandwich-panicking thing in a cheap bid for sympathy. But now I know one of the writers saw this ad in their youth and was scarred for life.
