Hustle Bustle

                           

Good Afternoon everybody, I hope you are all having a lovely Saturday.  I have been very quiet this week that is because I have not been at my best.  We have both had upset tums since we had our Burns Supper. Stuart and I are not vegetarians but sometimes we go for that option.  Haggis is one of the times we do. We both love Vegetarian Haggis but this week it was not our normal brand and it was not until I was cooking it I noticed it had chopped up red kidney bean in it something I am not keen on if I have not cooked them myself.. I don't know if this is what caused the upset or if it was something else.  Stuart has had bad indigestion all week and I have had colic and that has given me a lot of pain.  Feeling much better today so much so we took a extra trip shopping in Perth. It was a bright morning a bit nippy but a nice morning.  It is some time since we were uptown on a Saturday and we really enjoyed the hustle and bustle.  It was not too busy so there was plenty of room.  Did bits and pieces of shopping and bought a new blouse. Trying to get a few things together as we are going away to Ullapool in March for a few days.  We are going to same hotel as we were in last year as we really enjoyed it then. Since we were there last year it has been bought over by Swallow Hotel Group so I hope they don't change it too much as it is a very homely hotel with roaring fires and good food. Bang goes the diet for a few day but cannot resist a cooked breakfast when I come down in the morning and its all laid out for you.  Sorry to hear our dear friend Sara is having such a hard time just now and wish here well and  will be thinking of here.  That's about it from me for today enjoy the rest of your day Love,

Hi Joan, just popped in from the cold to say hello! I love Scotland and it's hotels with the roaring fires, I stayed at one a couple of years ago at Blair Atholl. Red kidney beans can be dangerous if you don't soak and boil them long enough, glad you both feel better now. Jeannette.

Hi Joan, you have to be so careful with red kidney beans, they can make you very ill if you are not careful.......we never have them - not even in a chilli con carne which they are main part of the recipe, I bung in baked beans instead, LOL! Hope you are feeling better now, love Joan

Sorry to hear you haven't been well,but hope you are feeling better!
Allan took me to Scotland for our first holiday together and we did 15,000 miles in a week. We visited so many places, but remember Allan being told off by the Harbour Master at Ullapool for parking in the wrong area!
I think I told you? my Mum fell at the Services at Kinross, and was in Perth Hospital for 7 weeks. that is the last time I was in Scotland visiting her.

Hope you are feeling better. You have to be so careful with red kidney bean, unless they are tinned.  You have to boil the others for at least 20 to 30 minutes to get the toxins out. We use them a lot but are always careful.

Kidney beans can be quite nasty if not cooked properly so I've heard and I do worry about it when I use them in a chilli con carne!!  I'm sorry to hear you've both not been well but I hope your better now and enjoying the weekend :-)
