Menu for September 18th – 24th

We had a great time at the Scottish Games held in our area this last Saturday – the kiddos always enjoy seeing the costumes, parades, and interesting characters who always come out for these kinds of things 😉

I enjoyed the haggis! I was very surprised the first time I had it – I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it at ALL, but I really didn’t mind the “organ meat” taste! I think it probably has a lot to do with the fact that we eat liverwurst often in our home… 🙂  I also came home inspired to try making meat pies again… they are so stinkin’ tasty, and the kids just gobbled them up.

We’re celebrating my great auntie’s birthday this coming weekend, as well as enjoying a hayride + bonfire after the party.  Should be a lovely way to spend Sabbath… and I’m sure there’ll be plenty of marshmallow stickiness to go around. 😀

We had a brief respite from the heat for a few days – it even rained! 🙂  It’s difficult to enjoy cool, rainy weather though, when some of our family has their raisin crop out to dry! Thankfully, it seems to just settle the dust and clear the air – not do any permanent damage!
