We had grits one morning for breakfast and I think they liked them too.
It's been fun trying new foods. Katrina made me a traditional dish when I first got here called Rumbledethumps! Potatoes, cabbage, onions and cheddar cheese. We went out to a buffet and I got to try Yorkshire pudding. A pastry shell not pudding as we know it in the States. The other night we had Indian Curry which I've never had and it is very popular here. I loved it. If I get a chance I am going to make southern chicken and dumplin's for them too before I go.
Yesterday we did Edinburgh Castle and walked the royal mile and walked past the Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace where the Queen stays when in town. I don't think I've ever walked as much as I have since getting here. I've put miles and miles on this old bod! Today we are going down to Peebles to meet up with Evee from Evee's blog and look for O Douglas' house!
It's cold and windy here, so if your planning on coming over pack layers and don't worry about dressing up because you'll have your coat on anyway!
I'm reading a copy of Barbara Comyns 'Our Spoons Came From Woolworths' that Katrina got at the library. It's been on my wish list. Also reading Katrina's copy of The Matchmaker by Stella Gibbons. I love her! Hope I can get it done by the time I leave!
