Today I want to share some of my favorite meals from our trip to England and Scotland. Poor England has a bad reputation for food, but we really do like most of it. We’re all about pub grub!
Speaking of pub grub, fish and chips is always a good go-to.
Jacket potatoes (baked potatoes) are also a reliable choice.
Let’s go ahead and address the haggis issue! I decided that I really couldn’t spend a week in Scotland and not at least TRY haggis since it’s considered the national dish! I know, I know. It’s supposed to be gross. Wikipedia helpfully informs us that haggis is a savory dish containing sheep’s heart, liver, and lungs minced with onion, oatmeal, suet (fat), spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and cooked while traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach though now often in an artificial casing instead. So there’s that. Still, I tried just a little bit at breakfast one morning, and I thought it was really good! It has a peppery kick! The whiskey sauce adds an extra level of YUM.
NOW!!! Now let’s talk about breakfast!
I’ll wrap up today’s post with a dose of real life!
I hope you’ve enjoyed Part 1 of our food stories! Tomorrow I’ll share some fun food finds with you!

That description STILL doesn’t convince me to try haggis!! 🙂
LOL! It looks and feels like hamburger meat, but it’s okay! You don’t have to try it!
I remember teaching the kids about haggis in the library when we were reading a book set in Scotland. All of us were quite disgusted at the ingredients. But I believe you when you say it was quite good. Somehow reminds me of mincemeat…the old fashioned kind.
Yeah, one shouldn’t think too much about the ingredients!
Did you buy your egg cups??
I did NOT!!! I’ll add them to my Christmas wish list!
