Baked haddock and veg. It was quite cool today, so had a break from salads and had a hot meal.

Small batch would have been better with the chicken. Chicken was very good.

Prepared Mother's Day Supper. Beef Coulette cut, , shrimp, mixed veggies, rice, tortellini, and rice. Beef had a mixed spice on top including ground ginger, cinnamon, mustard plus bay leaves and thyme. Drink: Glenlivet 12. This really brings forth the oakiness and the fruit is also more forward. Not really getting the coconut and vanilla.

Wheat toast and Livet 12. Really interesting balance between the salt in the buttered toast and the oak/fruit qualities of teh Livet.

Irish Cheddar aged 2 years with some 1792 Ridgemont Reserve (not a good pairing) and now some Talisker 18 (a great pairing).

Just couldn't put whisky with the food tonight. "Burrito" - jalapenos, jack/cheddar chees, and basmati rice. Really spicy. Alcohol would just burn the mouth.

Chocolate/chocolate chip cake and OP 12. This is a very poor pairing. The cake just brings out all the oaky characteristics and kills everything else.

Wait. If I have the whisky first, it really brings the chocolate and other flavors in the cake to the fore.

Pork chop with Lawrey's seasoning salt. Whisky: Dallas Dhu 12. What I can say is that the seasoning salt adds a dimension to the experience. Puts some spiciness on top of the usually waxy barley/bread notes.
