Love love love crumpets with butter and peanut butter -  little piece'o'heaven.  You need to have butter so it drips down your chin!

 

I agree -- but without an accompanying cup of hot coffee, it just isn't the same.

Right now, I'm having a stir-fry (friend in olive oil) of chopped leeks and white rice, into which I added canned salmon then mixed mayonnaise into the whole thing.  And a glass of red wine.

I've just had some oatmeal for breakfast. I always throw a lot of cinnamon it in, yummy.

Just snacking on fruit for tea as I went into Starbucks this afternoon and had a large caramel macchiato and a cinnamon swirl, so I should probably try and eat something a bit healthier now. Don't regret it at all though :D

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

The classic Scottish delicacy that is roll and square sausage with lashings of sauce and irn bru to wash it down with.

Was that what Billy Connolly was talking about when he said,

"Above all, go to Glasgow at least once in your life and have a roll and square sliced sausage and a cup of tea. When you feel the tea coursing over your spice-singed tongue, you'll know what I mean when I say: It's good to be alive".

Leftover aloo gobi that my sister made for dinner last night for us all. And a cup of tea.

Yes. A cup or tea or a can of Irn Bru (which outsells Coca-Cola!) and square sausage with sauce is one of the greatest things in life. Amazing, absolutely amazing.

I like the original name of Irn-Bru:  "Iron Brew".  Apparently, that was its name from 1901 to 1946, when the government stepped in to forbid the use of "brew" for a drink that is not actually brewed.

Seems that the company started a quirky and humorous ad campaign round about 2000.

"One of the most controversial Irn-Bru television adverts evoked 1950s entertainment. A mother plays the piano, while the father and two children deliver a song which ends with the mother singing: "...even though I used to be a man". This advertisement aired in 2000, but when it was re-aired in 2003, it received seventeen complaints from people who claimed it was offensive to transgender people."

Oh, ffs, LGBTs -- get a bloody sense of humour!

Irn Bru has a history of making adverts that most Scots find funny but which might be seen as offensive by some. At least they are not normally cheesy nonsense with some rubbish celeb.

They did a great take on the Snowman, a much loved Christmas cartoon that is aired yearly on Channel 4 in the UK.

And why not, here are some of the others, the one FP alluded to is second.

Going to Scotland is way up top of my all-time wish list - maybe one day........!   so I will make sure that delicacy is one of the things I experience when I'm there.

And just so I know what it is I'm asking for, what exactly is irn bru????

LadyBay, Irn Bru is a flavoured soft drink, Scotlands other national drink after Whiskey.

MMM -- Thanks for thos Irn Bru adverts (or "ads" as we Transpondians say). I notice the characters all pronounce it "iron brew" not literally "irn bru".

Last night I had mashed potatoes + steak with gravy. But now I am stuck with mashed potatoes + hash brown. My folks are serving shrimps/prawns which I don't eat.

Had leftover spaghetti/meatballs along with spinach/escarole/arugula salad.

And now it's time for a glass of wine and a toke! :D
