Whaddaya mean bad penny! Hee!
Well I reckon I would have to opt for a curry , now I know you say not traditional Scottish food , but it is high on the list today as Scotlands favourite food.
A white pudding supper would be a close second.You can tell I like good healthy wholesome food

Bit what about the recipes he asked for. C'mon people, I am sure everybody has a different slant on mince and totties, also steak pie and a good old fashioned stew. I'll start if off wae ma mince.
1 lb of extra lean mince
1 small onion
1 piece of turnip about the same weight as the carrot
salt to taste and lots of black pepper
Brown mince (if you use extra lean then there should be no fat to drain). Chop the onion fine and add to the mince. Dice carrot and turnip very small and add. Enough water to cover now add the salt and pepper. Cover and let simmer slowly for about 1/2 to 3/4 hour. Remember just simmer (boiled meat is spoiled meat). I sometimes add about 1/4 cup of V8 juice to the liquid as this gives the gravy a lovely taste. I then make my gravy with Bisto. I like my gravy quite thick so I use about two tablespoons of Bisto mix. Bring back to the simmer stage and continue to cook for a couple of minutes. Jaybee

V8 juice eh....ah'll hifty try that...can we get that here?.....still, ma favourite is ashet pie (the soggy pastry bit is the best), patotties and turnip....
See jist tae take this on a tangent, can anybody tell me whit the process is in 'processed' peas..?(ah canny stand them, but ah wondered if they're jist in a huff cos they're no garden peas or whit..)

Hi Java, yes I have bought V8 in Scotland, it has a slightly different taste that the one we buy here. V8 is a vegetable juice, tomato based with 8 vegetables blended through it. A very healthy drink for you. Look in the aisle where you buy Tomato juice.
Noo I love peas but not wee garden peas. Maybe processed peas are unhappy because they are not plump enough to be marrowfat peas..... Jaybee

That's right Betty, I used to add an oxo cube to it too. I am not fond of washing pots Betty, so all my veggies go in one pot...lol, Jaybee

V8 juice is available at Somerfields and Asda. It contains mostly carrots and tomatoes.(Smoothie) Used to buy the cans however they now pack it in large cartons.
