The title of my post is laughable, but, oh so true. From day one, I noticed how different everything tasted.
Our first menu, in Scotland, was from a small pub/restaurant.
It was fish and chips....and mushy peas.
Another side-street café serving lunch.
With a chill in the air most days, soup was my first choice for lunch.
And, always followed by coffee and a special dessert.
There was no resisting with window displays like this.
For our evening meal, my daughter and I, would decide on a nice restaurant.
And, of course, another dessert.
A Scottish Burger, to put all other burgers to shame !
More soup and their famous fresh seafood.
Followed by the sharing of each other's dessert.
No trip to Scotland would be complete without trying Haggis.
......and, so I did.
Yes, it was followed by dessert !!
We even found the food cart, on the train, tempting.
Nothing like a Tunnock's Caramel Bar for an afternoon pick-me-up.
After leaving Glasgow, we noticed signs in Gaelic and English.
No words necessary in English or Gaelic...just point in the direction of chocolate.
So what shall we order this time....
Maybe something small ?
I've been wondering why my senses seem to peak while traveling in Scotland...could it be because I was on my dream holiday? I do know, it was a very happy time for me.
And, the chance to travel with my youngest daughter, only sweetened the experience.
Hi Meggie! Oh, what a delightful tour of tastes! The fish looks especially delicious.ReplyDelete
I had so many more delightful food photos....everywhere we traveled, the food was over the top in freshness and taste.Delete

Oh, Scarlet...I was hoping you were on the mend. Wish I could send you a bowl of delicious soup!Delete
So glad you discovered Tunnocks wafers - hope you tried the teacakes too, very sweet but a lovely treat.ReplyDelete
I didn't know about the teacakes until I had returned home....will try them on my next trip.Delete
Well it would have been rude not to have tried out all the desserts wouldnt it?!!!ReplyDelete
My thoughts exactly !!Delete
Drooling ~ REALLY ~ I am drooling !ReplyDelete
I believe I enjoyed the soups as much as I did the desserts.Delete

Your food choices look quite excellent. Nice to see what is considered a regular offering. I would have tried the haggis too. Was it good?ReplyDelete

Now that's my kind of traveling! I remember, all too well the wonderful desserts in Scotland and Ireland. I owe you a long email, dear friend; just caught up in lots of work right now, but I haven't forgotten a special request. (Hint...you'll have your apron by April, promise!) XOXOReplyDelete
Ah the food! Yummy. I can just taste the food in your excellent photos. I thought the last photo in your castle photos was particularly breathtaking. (I tried commenting ealier but the iPad was not cooperating.) I'm heading back to Wales, Wed. Yahoo, more mushy peas, produce markets and fish!ReplyDelete
You take wonderful photos, Meggie. I gained 6 pounds eating desserts the two weeks we were in Scotland, And I'd do it again.ReplyDelete
My daughter and I gained a few pounds ourselves....we are determined to share desserts on our 2015 trip....laughingDelete
