Good Morning, Friday again the week has just whizzed by. All alone this morning Stu off doing his art me trying to catch up with other journal. That said I have just finished an entry in my Birdwatching Diary here's the link:
It's not a very nice morning here its raining again that's the third day this week so am glad we choose last week for our break. While we were away we visited a place called Cullen (the home of Cullen Skink) now what is that you may ask, well it is a fish soup. Our son raves about it but we had never tried it. As we were sitting on the beach at Cullen I said to Stuart if they have that on the menu while we are here I am going to try it. Low and behold that very night there it was Cullen Skink for one of the first courses. We both looked at one another and laughed. When the waiter came we both ordered it. It is absolutely fabulous. Its a creamy soup made with smokes flaked haddock onions and potatoes it was quite chunky but you could blend it if you wanted. We really both enjoyed it even Stuart who can be a bit picky at times thought it was great. If you key word Cullen Skink there are lots of recipes for it I am going to give it a try sometime. We were really overfed at the hotel it must be feeding all those healthy east coast fishermen's appetites that makes them give you so large portions. I never managed to clear my plate once while we were there and I felt awful about it but I just could not manage all they gave us. On the morning of our departure they even gave us two eggs with our Scottish breakfast. We both put on a few pound in the time we were away and now we will just have to take them off again. Oh well Que Serra Serra.
Well that's about it for today have a good day Love,
