Burns Night!

Our lovely table setting.

Rachel addressing the haggis - and doing a very good job of it too!

The lovely haggis!

Haggis, neeps & tatties! Yum!!!

Everyone busily eating!

The address to the lassies. Elder Stowers gave a moving speech about his grandmother, his mother, and his wife. It was really beautiful.


I made another Clootie Dumpling this year!

Ian enjoying his clootie dumpling - with hot custard!

Last year, Rachel & I organised a Burns supper for the YSA group. We prepared far more food than was necessary, and Rachel & I were eating haggis, neeps & tatties for weeks afterwards. Using our past knowledge, we thought we'd attempt another Burns supper, and this one was far more relaxed and successful.


  1. All that food looks so delicious! It brings back memories of my first taste of haggis, neeps and tatties in Edinburgh.

    Hey! - Those thistle dishes look just like mine! (Which I love by the way. I use it all the time!)

  2. Looks like so much fun! And that food is looking really good to me right now (I'm starting to crave some really weird stuff). ;)

  3. Ha, ha. I guess haggis qualifies for weird! It all looks quite good to me. Sorry that the Stowers' are leaving.
