Wot's in't pan, Stan? Dinner 12/22/13.

KIPPERS!not yer wishy washy,mamby pamby,pale & flaccid,vac packed boil in the bag artificially flavoured,coloured & smoked tasteless excuses for kippers that have no more right to exist on god's clean earth than a weasel.....no siree.nor your much vaunted but totally over-rated manx kipper.look you lot on the isle of man,you may well have three legs & cats with no tails but,imho,your kippers are boney,skinny,over salted,over smoked and,thankfully,over there.no,my fellow gastronauts,i refer to the scottish kipper.and not just any scottish kipper,but loch fyne scottish kippers.and not just any loch fyne scottish kipper,but big,fat,juicy,oily oak/beechwood smoked loch fyne scottish kippers.no pissy wissy lemon shall ever see my kippers.nope,it's gotta be malt vinegar.not just any malt vinegar,it's gotta be sarsons malt vinegar to be precise.they've been making vinegar since 1794,so i guess they know there stuff.i use the spray because when the fine mist hits the hot kipper it evaporates & makes your eyes water,your throat burn & your nose run.it's part of the fun.bread & butter on the side,wholemeal of course & lurpak danish butter....no other!
to drink,well,it's gotta be wild turkey 81...81 proof kentucky straight bourbon whiskey.on the rocks of course.food of the gods,to be sure

Scored a veal strip loin from work. I tied it up and rubbed it with a paste made up of parsley, rosemary, herb du provence, garlic, pepper, truffle oil. Now, let it sit out for another hour then slow/low roast it using the reverse sear method. Serving it with a mushroom/demi glace sauce and going to have double stuffed potatoes, and some kind of veg that I will probably leave on my plate...

Kippers... Aside from Supertramp and now, I'd have never heard of them.
They look like they'd be great for munching on during the football game.
