When In Scotland, Eat Well!
Nevertheless He [i.e., God] left not Himself without witness, in that He did good, and He gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. (Acts 14:17)
Good food is a proof of God’s providential care and power, as Acts 14:17 indicates. [See my analysis, of this truth, in “Our Daily Bread: How Food Proves God’s Providence”, ACTS & FACTS, 40(4):8-9 (April 2011), posted at https://www.icr.org/article/our-daily-bread-how-food-proves-gods/ .]
So, here is my Scottish-memories limerick, to help me recall some wonderful food that I ate while in Scotland, including many “full Scottish breakfast” buffets (with hot black teas), plus gourmet later-in-the-day treasures like Norway Lobster (a/k/a “Langoustine”, Nephrops norvegicus — a marine crustacean resembling a mini-lobster, i.e., a crawfish that tastes somewhat like a prawn-sized shrimp), haggis (which looks like a large egg roll — and tastes like Pennsylvania Dutch scrapple), venison, Isle of Mull mussels, scones (with clotted cream), sea scallops (e.g., “Queenies”), salmon, haddock (as part of “fish and chips”), haggis-&-cracked-black-pepper potato chips, Irn-Bru ice cream, and more!
Recalling Scottish Cuisine, in the Highlands & Hebrides
Scallops, haggis, fish and chips
Are well welcomed by my lips;
Norway lobster, steak of deer,
Scones and tea give me cheer;
Scallops, haggis, fish and chips!
