No, K, I buy mine - oatmeal, nuts, lots of root vegetables chopped very small, and highly secret spices.

It'sa constant puzzle to me - never solved it - how the 'skin' it's cooked in (it looks like a ball of chopped vegetables in cellophane, to be honest, but does taste wonderful) - can be vegetarian. But it is.

I believe the meat version IS cooked in part of a sheeps' stomach - but this is treated in na different way & it all tastes fine. You don't eat the 'skins' though, you scoop out the stuffing inside.
Lang May yer Lum Reek, Kazzzz: (ie, may you have prosperity ion the coming year!)

And I say, "Lang May yer Rum Leak". LOL

Could the vegetarian haggis "skin" be vegetable cellulose?

The wrap is a thick dried up coating of clag.

Cheryl's coming over for a pork roast with mashed potatoes and gravy, and whatever vegetables I have that look the best, maybe yam. I'll do another loaf of buttermilk whole wheat bread to make my house smell as wonderful as only fresh bread can.

I'll turn the clock ahead a few hours, we'll toast in the new year, and be resting at the usual time.

The party at church will probably be cancelled due to snow and high winds; Mr. Thing forgot and put the shrimp in the freezer, so we'll probably be having pasta for dinner tonight. But I'm still having my rum and Pepsi--I worked out extra hard at the gym last night to earn it, and dammit, I'm going to have one thing that feels like New Year's Eve!

I also have a bitchin' gold cardboard hat that says "Happy New Year" on it. LOL!

2 days on, Judy, I sincerely hope you enjoyed your rum & pepsi!YES!! Vegetable cellulose it must be and Yes, Kazzz, it's exactly like a more spiced but roast (inside clag, LOL, Patty!), come to think of it. I do like both versions a lot. When we were last in Scotland (some years ago) pubs served haggis for lunch. And a friend of mine's had it for breakfast there.

Husband says they use a sausage skin for the meat version these days, not the sheeps stomach (but I don't really know how the factory-made ones are cooked).

All went down a treat, with christmas-pudding ice-cream to follow and I hope YOU all enjoyed your delicious-sounding meals as much as we did ours.

Still feels like holiday times here- schools not back, sales on, etc.

Thanks, I did enjoy my rum and Pepsi! We had our shrimp cocktail for dinner on New Year's Day, and are having our traditional beef roast tonight. I also have today off, and school doesn't start until Monday, so it's been one long Saturday since the 24th, which I also had off. Monday is going to be rough, I think.

Hmm come to think of it Clag prob does make a nice marinade!

For NYD Ava and I had aprocot chicken and mash and veggies, Ray had spicy spaghetti bolognese. Oh and of course we grazed on the seemingly neverending array of continental buscuits and treats. I opened a cupboard yesterday and found another unopened box of empty calories!
Kathryn turned up last night, back from 4 days at the beach and basically ate everything edible in the fridge, quite obviously she's eaten next to nothing for the last 4 days. I asked her what her and her friends had lived on and she replied "Oh you know...stuff.."
