Pictures taken between Monday, December 25 and Sunday, December 31.
Here are my last bird photos of 2017:As usual, Justin...ridiculously good birds. We have the great weather here in SoCal but our birds are dull as mud. Or maybe dull as sand, since technically we are a desert.
I first had smoked whiskey while cruising to the Southern Caribbean. I was nearly as impressed by the process as by the smoothing and smokey flavor added to an already good drink. Not long after, I ran into the machine used to generate the smoke while browsing Amazon for sous vide accessories. When I saw it at Bed Bath & Beyond with a 20% coupon, resistance was futile. After adding a 2 liter Erlenmeyer flask to the bar tools, I gave it a try to see if it really was that easy. It was. It will remain a special occasion drink and the pictured setup was Applewood smoked Scotch shared with my son (the family’s other Scotch drinker) on New Year’s Eve. A smokey, smooth ending to 2017.
Happy New Year!
