UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) 7bmcMIG

Welcome to the United Kingdom!!


As you may know, the UK is made up of four countries:
 UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) 4011577294 Scotland
 UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) 4011577294 England
 UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) 4011577294 Northern Ireland
 UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) 4011577294 Wales

Northern Ireland and Wales are  really nice and all but since neither Pallas nor I am from there, you ain't gonna be learning about them today. 

So we're gonna give you a wee overview of what makes Great Britain (well, Scotland and England) so GREAT.

Recipes


Victoria Sponge – English Recipe:
  UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) Recipe-image-legacy-id--1001468_10

The Victoria sponge or Victoria sandwich cake was named after Queen Victoria, who favoured a slice of the sponge cake with her afternoon tea. It is often referred to simply as "sponge cake", though it contains additional fat. A typical Victoria sponge consists of raspberry jam and whipped double cream or vanilla cream. The jam and cream are sandwiched between two sponge cakes; the top of the cake is not iced or decorated apart from a dusting of icing sugar. The Women's Institute publishes a variation on the Victoria sandwich that has raspberry jam as the filling and is dusted with caster sugar, not icing sugar.

Recipe can be found HERE


Scones – English Recipe:
UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) Recipe-image-legacy-id--1001500_10

A scone is a single-serving cake or quick bread. They are usually made of wheat, barley or oatmeal, with baking powder as a leavening agent, and are baked on sheet pans. They are often lightly sweetened and are occasionally glazed. The scone is a basic component of the cream tea or Devonshire tea. It differs from a teacake and other sweet buns, which are made with yeast. A scone is in some senses a type of pastry since it is made with essentially the same ingredients as shortcrust, though with different proportions of fat to flour.

Food
 
Haggis, Neeps & Tatties
UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) 6a010536bcc8ca970c0148c7fe3d75970c-400wi
The traditional Scottish meal. We eat this on Burns’ Night and St Andrew’s Day. But lots of Scots eat this kind of stuff regularly. Uh, not me though. Haggis is actually a sheep's heart, liver and lungs mixed with suet, oatmeal, and seasoning and stuffed in the sheep's stomach. Yum. Neeps are turnips and tatties are potatoes. Also, black pudding: basically a mixture of suet, oats, blood, barley and a special blend of spices stuffed in a length of protein casing.. Hella gross, but very Scottish. I know I’m not really selling this, but I’m sure you can understand why. One GOOD Scottish meat is sliced sausage:
UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) Lorne_Sausage
YES.
 
Tablet & Shortbread
UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) 2Q==
UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) Walkers_Shortbread_Fingers_150g

Tablet is super yummy sugary goodness. I literally only tried this for the first time at Christmas even though it’s super Scottish and omg it’s like the most unhealthiest tastiest little block of sugar ever. I think it’s pretty similar to like fudge and caramel but BETTER. 
Shortbread is veeeery Scottish, it’s like a crumbly kind of biscuit. It’s really popular here as a gift, and especially around Hogmanay (New Year’s Eve).
 
Irn Bru
UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) Irn-Bru-1305396

Basically, the sweet nectar of Scotland. This bright orange drink is available at McDonalds, Subways, all restaurants, etc. It’s probably the most popular soft drink in Scotland. I’m legit addicted to it. I used to drink like five cans a day but I’ve cut back. All you need to know is it is NOT orange juice and it IS amazing.
 
Places

Edinburgh
UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) Edinburgh
UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) Edinburgh-Castle-Night

Our capital city. Edinburgh is beautiful and if you can ever visit the UK, I definitely recommend visiting here. It’s always got a wonderful atmosphere and the castle and scenery are just beautiful. I adore Edinburgh.
 
Glasgow

UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) Scotland_glasgow

I live in Glasgow, it’s the “people’s capital”. There’s always a semi-serious rivalry between which is better between Glasgow and Edinburgh. ^^; Glasgow is definitely better for shopping, nightlife and just having fun, whereas Edinburgh is classy and scenic. 
 
The Highlands
UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) Eileandonancastle1
This is the top part of Scotland. It’s where people speak like they do in Brave. It’s really pretty though, with lots of lochs (Scottish lakes), castles and hills etc.


The Weather
Crap.




So, in conclusion, y'all should come visit me so I can ply you with sheep's innards and sugar and take you to pretty castles! UK: A Mini Tour ((UPDATED with Scotland)) 1955989781

I SECOND THIS NOTION. Very Happy Haggis sorta sounds like some stuffed stomach thing (I think pig?) here called a "ponce". I've never had it. But i think Cajuns would do all right with your weird meats. We have plenty of weird meats here too. xD

Oh! Found a link about it. Ponce is also known Chaudin: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
