    Happy Robbie Burns day to all. ;) :D

    Haggis anyone? :shifty:

    A little joke i found on the net,

    A Scotsman asks the dentist the cost for a tooth extraction.

    "#85 for an extraction sir," was the dentist's reply.

    "# 85!!! Huv ye no' got anythin' cheaper?"

    "That's the normal charge," said the dentist.

    "Whit aboot if ye didnae use any anesthetic?"

    "That's unusual, sir, but I could do it and knock #15 off."

    "Whit aboot if ye used one of your dentist trainees and still without an anesthetic?"

    "I can't guarantee their professionalism and it'll be painful. But the price could drop to #40."

    "How aboot if ye make it a trainin' session, ave yer student do the extraction with the other students watchin' and learnin?"

    "It'll be good for the students," mulled the dentist. "I'll charge you #5. But it will be traumatic."

    "Och now yer talkin' laddie! It's a deal," said the Scotsman.

    "Can ye confirm an appointment for the wife next Tuesday then?

    Although I've sampled the whiskey, I've never had the "intestinal fortitude" to try haggis.

    In this neck of the woods, there's menudo which usually follows mucho cerveza y tequila.

    A large saucepan - Have the butcher cut the calf's foot into four pieces. Cut the tripe into small squares.
    1 calf's foot (about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds) (Note: Some prefer pigs feet)
    2 pounds honeycomb tripe
    1 large onion
    3 cloves garlic, peeled
    6 peppercorns
    2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
    4 quarts of water
    A comal or griddle
    3 large chiles anchos

    Rob

    I think you guys would be surprized at how good it is..........the stomach is not eaten...it is opened after all is cooked and what is inside is eaten.....if you like lamb then most likely you would like the haggis............when eaten in the morning it will last for many hours enabling one to have a very productive morning and then some...........for those who have seen the stone walls of the Highlands, the importance of strength and energy is painfully apparent.......
    Haggis is sort of like meatloaf in that there is no one set recipe.....the one posted by bigc is a good one, but there are many slight variations of it.....
