Another Fine Supper

Last night was the Annual Robert Burns Supper. This year, the Misty Thistle Pipes and Drums were the sponsoring organization. Jane Bolima, President of the MTP&D, did the lioness's share of the prepping, decorating, organizing, cooking, calling, arranging, and running. Really, she is an amazing woman, with far more energy than I want to have. Energy like that means everyone wants you to do everything, because, apparently, you can.

Good crowd at the Supper. We ordered rotisserie turkeys from A&P and that turned out to be a very good deal. Tatties and neaps, salad, and, of course, HAGGIS. We ordered six pounds from Charles Lamb, in Oregon, and Jane tried her hand at home made haggis. I think hers was better.More pepper is needed, but if she is willing to prepare it next year (see, I do it, too), that is another $200 we will save in costs. The turkeys, used instead of salmon, saved us almost $500. All told, it appears that we netted over $1100. That is a few pipe reeds or kevlar drumheads.

Fun, ach, aye.
