Let me start by saying that this is an unusual state of affairs. Generally, Mr. Mhor produces very good breakfasts indeed.
But yesterday something went very wrong. The Robbing Butcher (despite signage to the contrary) was closed. Horrified, the Mustress had to obtain supplies from the Co – Op instead.
No Stornoway black pudding. No eggs from the new hens (see blogs passim) and no very expensive (but delicious) bacon.
It was the eggs which got me. Despite the RB boasting about the eggs from the new hens, and the Mustress being dismissive of their quality, it has been obvious from the get-go that the eggs from the new hens are MUCH better than common or garden eggs from the Co – Op or even the previous eggs sold by the RB.
And the Stornoway black pudding – oh – it is SO good. Just incomparable.
The haggis. Again – superb.
OH!! THE CIRCULAR SQUARE SAUSAGE – what can the Mustress say? The Mustress would gladly live forever more on the Robbing Butcher’s circular square sausage and eggs from the new hens. No arguments.
The fridge and store cupboards at Mhor Cottage were blatantly depleted. Mr. Mhor did not warn the Mustress, but just got on with cooking breakfast, as he always does.
The Mustress was not impressed when it reached the table. Co – Op bacon, black pudding, square sausage, haggis and eggs.
Not only that – the eggs were not dippy. That was what broke the Mustress.
Dippy eggs are essential. Mr. Mhor knows this (as a long thread on Mumsnet will attest) yet he still served hard fried eggs.
Could this be grounds for divorce? I would gladly cite the Robbing Butcher as co-respondent.
Knowing the RB he would bar me from the shop, to get his own back.
