At the company Christmas dinner, we were seated with a co-worker and his guest - Kelly.
She was a very nice lady and at some point, conversation turned to Mr. Dragon's and my recent trip to Scotland.
Of course, the question came up of "Did you try haggis?" (Yes we did, in several formats).
Haggis is a kind of rare dish, so we weren't surprised at having to explain it to Kelly. (Oats, ground meats, seasonings stuffed in a casing of sheep stomach. Kind of like a meatloaf sausage.)
Like many people, Kelly found the notion off-putting.
What surprised me was when we pointed out that really, it's not that unlike a sausage in concept.
She didn't know that sausage casings are traditionally cased in intestine.
I thought this was a generally known thing and I'm afraid that finding out may have turned her off of sausage for the next bit...
