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...

Great tip. I will scour the land for scottish smoked products....I know where to get the wild turkey.:tongue:

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.

We're going out to dinner tonight to our favorite restaurant. I'll be having muscles for my appetizer but not sure what I'll have for the entree.

Dawgluver 12-22-2013 03:38 PM

I'm making a variation on Whiska's Totchos.

Tesco sounds kinda like our Costco or Sam's Club.

LPBeier 12-22-2013 03:43 PM

TB is getting his steak today and I will try a little more chicken, though I am not at all hungry.

Greek salad, potatoes or rice, not sure of the sides.

Aunt Bea 12-22-2013 04:33 PM

Tonight it is a cheeseburger and a salad at my house.

I have trouble deciding what to eat on the days leading up to a major holiday, it seems like all of the thought goes into the holiday meal! :ermm::ohmy::lol:

I think Totchos have gathered small legs of their own. CarolPa made these for dinner yesterday too. Hope you both enjoy(ed) them. Like any nachos, you can make any variation you prefer. What I like about them is I can't eat tortilla chips and these are chewy and just a bit crisp on the outside.


As far as Kippers and Wild Turkey. I know where to find one of the two. The only kippers I have ever seen are in a small can, like sardines and are imported from Canada. I sure would like to discover some like Harry's pics today.

I am having leftover ham from the "small ham" I made the other day. I would fear it's gathering legs of its own too, good thing I like ham. Scramble eggs.

You haven't missed much. Kippers are the work of the devil regardless or where they come from. They are one of the many forms of smoked herrings, which is weird because I love herrings and I love smoked fish but I hate kippers.

Harry's right though. Among the cognoscenti Loch Fyne kippers are considered the best.
