To the Bard of Scotland!

Some prep for our Burns Supper tonight.  Justin's cousin and sisters & their boyfriends came over and we enjoyed some elements of the traditional meal for this celebration of the life & work of Robert Burns.  We had cheese & homemade oatcakes before supper, then haggis, collops of beef, neeps, and tatties for the main meal.  

Then, we followed it all up with a whisky cake and cranachan, along with a whisky-honey-cider "winter warmer."  Enjoyed those last things (along with some s'mores) in the backyard while we burned the Christmas tree in our fire pit.  A lovely night!
