Emma put out a beautiful, yet mysterious spread. She also refused to tell us what any of the items were until we tried them...yikes! I thought cafeteria mystery meat was suspicious, but Scottish mystery meat is just plain scary. A number of the dishes included the infamous haggis, which I tried for the first time. I figured that coming from a girl who eats scrapple with no qualms, I shouldn't be picky! The haggis pie was actually really good, although after my first round I wasn't brave enough for seconds.
My bravery only lasted for so long, and I stopped short of trying the black pudding. I think that is a dish more suited for vampire friends!
Matt topped off the evening by bringing mulled wine packets back from his trip to the UK. You drop these satchels with spices and sugar into about two liters of red wine heated over the stove and it makes a delicious fruity, spicy warm drink. It tastes like Christmas in a cup - maybe next year I'll have a mug to wash down that black pudding!
