    Just a pint? Sounds a bit weedy to me.

    I developed a taste for haggis and neeps and taters when I was in Scotland. Truth be told, I found Scottish cuisine to be far more palatable than that which we were served in England. (I was in the minority in my group, however; no one else enjoyed black pudding or haggis.) But I found haggis to be a hot and hearty meal...something akin to a nice slab of meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
