Cooking Class

Romper, the squirrel, went to cooking class every Monday. He wanted to learn how to cook authentic Scottish foods. Today’s class was ‘How To Cook A Haggis.”


The teacher told the students to mix some oatmeal with spices. “Stir it well,” she told them. Romper did just that.


            “Now, add suet, liver, onion, and carefully put in some hot pepper; not too much, but just a wee bit,” she continued. “Stir it well.”


Romper did just that.  “Class, push the mixture into a well sheep’s pluck, or stomach bag and bring it up here to the me, carefully,” she cautioned. Romper did as instructed.


            Half an hour went by. Romper used that time to clean up his mess as the haggis cooked. “It’s ready,” the teacher called out. The haggis plopped on a plate. Everyone had some. “Eat up!” she said.


And Romper did just that. “I love haggis. What are we fixing tomorrow?”


His teacher laughed. “You’ll just have to wait and see.”
