Today is Burn's Night in Scotland, and last year I had planned on celebrating today with the wife at the Utah Scottish Association annual Burn's Supper. But then I made the mistake of eating what passes for haggis in these parts at the local Scottish Highland Games which was held back in August last year. That 'haggis' was the most vile over priced sausage with gravy I have ever had the pleasure of eating and was enough to make me rethink my plans. It just wasn't haggis. Not even close.
So instead of introducing my wife to the Burns Supper I am instead making Chilli.
I had actually meant to try and sneak some authentic haggis (it's actually banned here) into the country so that we could have our own celebration but the day snuck up on me and I forgot all about it - not very patriotic of me. I will of course try and remember and do so next year. If I can find a way to get it delivered and get it past the sniffer dogs that is.
