Speaking of biscuits... What was that oat-biscuit or cookie you shared at Lauder, Andy? It was quite good, and I think it would be a good idea to carry some in my haversack or sporran...

Cheers,
Henrik

flapjacks - never leave home without them. A good source of energy, and very tasty to boot.

Of course it helps if you do wrap them up in something rather than just let the rattle arround in your snapsack with everything else.....

Really? I kind of like getting everything in my haversack sticky, and getting dirt and hair on my cookies. Gives that little extra flavour :lol:

Yes :D

Hairy flapjacks was an unexpected side affect.

If Burt is to be believed, hair would be a fairly common ingredient in the highland quisine. Therefor camouflaging the flapjacks in hair would give a boost to the authenticity. :lol:
I imagine a gang of highlanders sitting around a campfire discussing what kind of hair they prefer to spice their oatmeal porrige with... :lol:

Is Hairy Flapjacks some obscure rhyming slang?

Seeing as it came from Andy I just assumed it was a colloquialism for people from Nairn :)

I have you know that if it had been a Nairnism, the Highlanders would have been fed a diet of cake and freshly butchered meat (cooked with no sign of blood)
Which is one up on Jimmy Robertson who runs the butchers in Nairn (Nay cake there), although he did turn out a mean meatloaf if childhood memory serves me right.

But that would have been from my dad (army chef extraordinaire) as opposed to me where the excesses of my culinary delinquency culminate in a hairy flapjack.

And they were all gone by 10:30 when they were supposed to be my lunch.

Andy
While tanatlising us with stories of Nairn's (legal note: the place not the bakery company) hairy flapjacks I must counter recommend hidden amongst the butteries and rowies at the back of the tray the foostie fruit bannocks of Keith.
Made, ahem...lovingly(?) by the wifie in the shop there since 17 oatcake and the perfect whisky hangover cure.
No sell by date and no questions asked :wink:
Cheers
Neil

Minds me of the allnight bakery in Reekie- now part of the music shop on the southside/Nicolson square.

Many a happy time eating halfbaked pies sold from the back door, having a blether and maybe watching the lads have a wee pagger before heading home at closing time.

Stuff you don't get in the tourist guides :)

Phil I remember it well...... just at Nicolson Square before you got to the Odeon. Many a happy night spent half cut there.
Years later I used to live in Polwarth and there was the same wee kind of late night bakers there just off Dundee St. Guy there used to do pies and rolls and made the best Vanilla Slices in the world.....now there is a challenge after a pint or ten....usually woke up next day alone, with 3 dozen rolls and with lots of cold custard (I hoped!) all over myself............those were the days!!!

...and the dodgy chippie that'd sell you a bottle of vodka after hours if you bought a bag of chips, and the one on Broughton St chippy that installed a DJ so it could be a nightclub and sell booze along with a chippy supper!

I'll be back there one day...:)

Hi Neil,

Seeing as you are here, and as a bit of an experiment, let's see if we can describe Devlin as more orange than the man from Del Monte


Now......


RUN :D

Devlin that well known quiet man :D


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Going a bit away from the Devlin-, bakery- and flapjack-discussion and back to Culloden.

Look what they did to the poor corporal!!!

And here's a hint to why the second filming was better arranged and planned than the first : :lol:

That corporal looks like he has just had a serious disagreement with an overfilled jam doughnut!

So he just stuffed himself with jam filled doughnuts and got tired and went to sleep with his targe working as a pillow?

Or does that jam come from one of the redcoats who ate his doughnut while walking over the field towards the initial position of the jacobite line?

It was commented at the week end that Corp. Ken got covered in s***e (jam and sugar) where as Corp. Paul was spotless. This has led to rumours in the camp that Corp. Paul Scotch Guards his kit. He tried to disprove this by getting grassy knees but we think he borrowed the breeches from some one else.

We also noted that Corp. Paul was in just about every picture from the first filming. I've pointed out I'm in charge so I should get the publicity. His reaction was to total his car with failed brakes on the way to the event, on his birthday, with his wife in the car, coming to her first event. I bet that makes the papers.

By the way the guy with the Scotch in the picture is the Director Craig Collinson. Top man!

Talking of grub, am I the only one on here who used to frequent the chippie in Crieff for a meally pudding supper and a bottle of IB, and then go off to the bridge over the stream at the bottom of the hill. I think it became a butchers, not sure what it is now. It was the lard coating on the roof of my mouth I remember and having to scrape it off with my finger nails, loverly. :)
