Deck the halls, roll out the barrel of Real Ale, sing hey-nonny round the maypole, send someone to Tesco's for that rum Selkie likes so much in her daiquiris, put the kettle on for Thog's decaffeinated (snigger) tea, pour Lili a Guinness and give her all the chocolate she needs, and pray essay the ancient Line Dance Of Greeting (as performed only in certain parts of Essex around the time of the Chartist Riots) for lilifae is among us!
Welcome, Liz.

Haggis is quite different . . . and it's very, very yummy too. I'd normall expect the cereal in haggis to be barley rather than oatmeal, but I'm sure oatmeal's often used too/instead.

We spotted in the local supermarket the other day that they now stock proper Scots oatmeal, so the next time the oats run out we'll get oatmeal instead -- yahey! And then it'll be brose for breakfast every day . . .

It could very well have been Bob's Red Mill -- the name sounds familiar.

Brose: oatmeal, a teaspoonful of spread, a dash of salt (which of course I'll these days omit), and pour on boiling water. Mmmmm, bliss.

Here's an interesting bit of trivia regarding brose:

Is this anything like holding the tip of your tongue between your forefinger and thumb, while trying to say the word "apple"?

Dunno, but after a few bowls of Atholl Brose I guess we'll all be trying to.
