Burns night come early

Haggis is served.. Posted by Picasa

As we'll all be sacked by the time Burns night really comes around, and because we are fortunate enough to have a large number of Scots in our student population, we decided that we ought to celebrate early. As you can see from the photo above, plenty of people showed up. Just sit back for a second and think about the logistics of serving all those people at the same time..
you've got haggis, vegetarian haggis, those who can't eat either had salmon. Then there was mashed potato, and mash with spring onions, and roast potatoes, and carrots, and a carrot and turnip puree and gravy. Now think how you're going to manage this with only student kitchen facilities! We ended up utilising ovens in different flats and all sorts.

So - a massive thanks to all those who put so much time and effort into cooking and decorating!

The night itself was fantastic. There were tartan bows on the glasses, and everyone had a token sip of whisky (except Kim who downed hers...) and many other drinks. Some of the brave even tried Scottish dancing!
