Happy Robbie Burns Day!

Ach! Thanks to Jacqueline over at Corrie Canuck for the reminder.

Who is Robbie Burns? A Scottish poet (actually, I think he's considered a bard), that's who! He was born on January 25, 1759 and penned the infamous Auld Lang Syne, as well as Address to a Haggis, an ode to the traditional Scottish dish.

Ah, haggis... I have to admit that I love it. I'd rather eat it with a good scotch than hurl it. And its ok to celebrate, even if you're not of Scottish descent. Everyone is a wee bit Scottish on Robbie Burns day!

(there's even vegan haggis! ;) )

its like sausage really, except the oatmeal gives it a different texture. but if you don't like the idea of sausage, that doesn't help. ;)
