I took some of Trader Joe’s Miso Ginger Broth, a hand full of stir fry veggies, and tossed in some pork dumplings for a very nice , simple soup.
One time I had to explain to a Welsh friend what a biscuit is to us. I said “a scone without all the sugar.”I've been pretty good about doing more home cooking this year vs. last year.
Might try my hand at biscuits and gravy this weekend.
ETA: that's "biscuits" in the American sense. Per Wikipedia, "A biscuit in the United States and Canada, is a variety of small baked goods with a firm browned crust and a soft, crumbly interior. They are usually made with baking powder or baking soda as a chemical leavening agent rather than yeast."
Gravy on cookies would be pretty gross!
God damn, you started right at the top! Great choice.After seeing this (there’s a whole series of Brian Cox pronouncing almost every Scotch there is)
I decided to try the Lagavulin 16. Jesus Wept. I’ve heard people say “smoky but with no peat bite” before, but now I know what that means. Think I’m going to start picking up a bottle per paycheck and starting working my way through the whisky world.
Those are even trickier to get into here in Brazil, but I’ve had the Yamazaki Distiller’s Reserve and absolutely adored it. If I’d had it blind I’d swear it’s a Speyside, all honey and flowers.I know zero about Japanese whiskeys. You get much into those yet?
Their official stance is that increased demand has stripped their stocks and they need a few years to age what they have and/or step up production. This article has a pretty good run-down (and guide to their range).Has Suntory decided to get rid of the Premium Whisky labels? Near everything is being discontinued.
