Yestersay was croque monsieur followed by some Talisker 18, day before me and a friend grilled crayfish with garlic and herb butter for starters and then a venison roast with a balsamic sauce and potatoes au gratin. Also follwed by Tali 18.

Lasagna and Black Bull. The anise in the sausage works really well with the Islay in this blend.

Pan fried entrecôte (rib eye) marinaded in chili sauce, black pepper, balsamic vinegar, liquid smoke, oil, honey and a pinch of salt. Served with a garlic and herb (marjoram, parsley, thyme, rosemary and basil) butter plus pommes chateau and broccoli.

Had a Talisker 18 and wine with this.

Thanks Sean! The liquid smoke and thick marinade created a decent substitute for the BBQ.
Yesterday I made a minced beef stew based on the above marinade, just added some chopped onions, golden chantarelles, garlic, game stock, cream and greeen pepper corns. To this I had a Glenfarclas 105 and a beer.

Pork chops coated in rosemary, garlic and pepper. Seved with cream gravy and mash.
The Talisker 18 was somewhat overwhelmed by the galic I'm afraid.

A simple salad. Raw onion has a strange effect on the palate.

Pork pot roast with carrots, parsnip, celeriac, onion, garlic, rosemary, thyme, bay leaf, pepper corns, and tomato pure. Boiled tatties and a sauce made from the stock in the pot.

The left overs are now in the fridge in a brine with liquid smoke, bay leaf and junipers.

I wish this forum allowed edits. I forgot to mention that it was in a sweet and sour sauce. Really came out very tasty. Mushrooms were hot yet firm. Potatoes soft. Peppers, cloves and onions just right. Here's one satisfied customre.

Tonight pepp/sausage pizza. Hmmm. I wonder what to have with this? I think I'll go with Ancient Ancient Age 10 bourbon.

Ok, Sig Mull does not work well with pepperoni pizza. It brings life to the Mull but it is Evil Dead.
