A TASTE OF SCOTLAND WP

Gee, I had heard that all Scottish food is based on a dare, but that sounds yummy! I want some!

I'd report a spelling error, but I wouldn't know one if it smacked me right between the eyes.

Other than that, informative and entertaining.

Last puzzle, I mistyped twice. Not once, but twice. 6 points down the drain! Grrrrrrrr

I can't wait til it's over so I can tell you what word made me use almost every letter!!

I am amazed that I kept all 5000 points! This one was a good challenge!

It wasn't the Scottish words that got me, it was the everyday English words in between! Sploofanatic, that was so much fun! Now you've got me desperate to go back to the Highlands. Thanks for a super puzzle!

You mean besides me and you? I finally pulled the U and that did it.

That was exactly the word that drove me crazy - I still couldn't see it even with the "u" - I already had the entire puzzle filled in except that - all I could think of was "puppy" which made no sense at all, but I guessed "y" and that's when it hit me. So I didn't lose any points, but it was very disheartening to realize that I missed such a silly word!!

Maybe it's just hard to formulate the concept of "yummy" when expecting a haggis or blood pudding around the next corner.

I was unfortunately out of town and had no way to get to a computer! I was really disappointed to miss this one!

I did better on Scottish cuisine than I did for French cuisine. The only French cuisine I know is French Fries, and I studied Spanish in school instead of French.

D'oh!

I think it's funny that Koota stuck a "yummy" right up there in the original message. I spent plenty of time figuring it out, but luckily only one letter. I had all the vowels except U, and I figured the word had to be either --U-- or -U--Y. Luckily, the description didn't make it sound "yucky."

However, the yummy dish in question, iirc, referred to a mashed-potato dish flavored with onion, cabbage, and (optional) meat. Nary an offal in sight.

Missed it too - was PC-less for the weekend (as usual) - hope they had mention of deep fried pizza too - a culinary delicacy. Just add the pizza to the deep fat until it floats, it goes nice and crispy, just add chips (fries), salt and vinegar (or salt and sauce if you're from Embra or Glesgae). You can feel your arteries harden as you eat it.......

Thanks to Larefamiliaris for his explanation of the Word Puzzle section.

It seems "some" Scottish people - not Lare - COOK MARS BARS IN BATTER!!!!
like a Baked Alaska....and then they eat it with FRIES!!!!
I suggested that if they then had a fried egg and bacon sandwich for dessert,
that would be the PERFECT HAPPY MEAL !!!!
It would certainly make me happy....but not for long.

I guess Lare didn't explain how they like their eggs. They boil them, bury them in a thick ball of sausage, roll them in bread crumbs and deep fry them! Slice in halves, serve with spicy mustard. Voila! Heart attack on a plate!

Last night I saw a magazine article that recommended using angelfood cake for French toast. My hubby and I had a good laugh at the idea of having fried CAKE for breakfast--surely served with butter and syrup. An empty calorie extravaganza!

No....according to my "personal guide to healthy eating"
CAKE is made with flour, eggs, butter and sugar.

Flour is a vegetable....veggies for breakfast
and when you add cigarettes from a plant,
and coffee from a bean....
three veggie servings in one meal!!!!

Eggs and butter are the Protein.
Sugar is the Carbohydrate.

Thank you all for the kind response, I'm very glad (and a wee bit relieved) that you enjoyed a sample of yummy Scottish cuisine. I hope you'll be pleased to know another is in the works!
