Pecan Encrusted Rainbow Trout drizzled with a Bourbon-Maple Syrup Reduction, and a Brown Rice Cranberry & Pine Nut Pilau on the side.

@Nozinan, GOOD ONE!! A Broilermaker ... and a Boiler Maker

Panini made with a crusty roll and thick hand-sliced Veneto salami, smothered in old cheddar and placed under the broiler until everything begins to sizzle (perhaps add some pickled pepperoncini to dress it up). Accompanied by an ice-cold Birra Moretti and a generous pour of Talisker 57 North. Anybody interested? I'm buying.

I like where this is going!...Broilermakers 'n' Boilermakers.

@paddockjudge I’ll take a sandwich, a couple beers, and as much Talisker as you’re willing to share. smiley

Edit: extra pepperoncini on my broilermaker please

Friday Dinner: grilled Moroccan Chicken, turned into shawarma sandwiches, with Lebanese pita, garlic mayo, baba ghanouj, mixed greens, grilled eggplant and zucchini, and homemade turnip pickles, served with a beer brewed in Turkey for a Danish company...a truly international experience.

Grilled Tequila and Lime Chicken, aka Margarita Chicken. Some used in a garden salad with grilled chicken, the rest for something else tomorrow.

@YakLord Do you have the recipe for Moroccan chicken? My wife and I really enjoyed the tagine dishes during our pre-pandemic visit to Morocco.

@paddockjudge that's some pretty looking produce! Congratulations and Happy Equinox! Soon will be the Sudbury -30 C.

@Victor, considering the location of my garden, north of 4/5 of The Great Lakes, I am indeed fortunate to have such a bountiful harvest. I fear the end of the growing season has coincided with the Autumnal Equinox, which occurred at 15:20 today. I waited until after this occurrence to pick this fruit, just because.

For the next six months we will have more dark hours than light. In recent years, the past dozen or so, autumn has signaled the roll-out of new Canadian releases. This year should be no different. I'm looking forward to Alberta Premium Cask Strength, CC 44 YO, Wiser's Legacy Silver Edition, and what has now become an annual event, the North of 7 barrel pick for Jason and the Whiskinauts, and a cask strength Forty Creek, yep, a CS FC. All of this helps to make the cold and dark days ahead more bearable.

@paddockjudge Your peppers are spectacular, mate, and I’m guessing those round red things actually taste like tomatoes. You’ve got a good shade of green on that thumb of yours.

It’s last weekend of Oktoberfest and we are having a few friends over to celebrate. I’ve got Hirschgulasch (venison stew) in the slow cooker, Sauerbraten has been marinating for a few days and I will start cooking it tomorrow morning. And of course various German sausages/bratwurst. Mostly German beer (in liter steins) will be drunk but a few of my whisky friends will be attending so there is a chance of a dram. My wife and I made it to Munich in 2019 for Oktoberfest and it has been canceled for 2020 and 2021 so we are doing it as best we can in Maryland for the past two years.

@Victor, wait until you try Barrel #16 from North of 7 distillery, you are going to love it!!

@paddockjudge I thought these were lined up for target practice. Until I noticed the Barrel 16 there and concluded that a direct hit would wire out half of the neighbor hood.

@Astroke, Ain’t that the truth!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Barrel #16, it clocks in at 149 proof, is full of delicious wheat-sweetness, intense rye spices, brilliant oaky notes, and a buttery accent which reminds us that corn is the main component in the mashbill. It is full-proof whisky, but settles gently in the mouth and could be mistaken to be 50 proof points lighter. One spark and the Hazmat Team would be required to handle the situation.

A big thanks to @JasonHambrey for putting this barrel pick together, now on our third barrel.

@paddockjudge That’ll get you right off your gourd with that ABV and those notes of red, green and yellow peppers.

A day late but since we are still eating leftovers…

My wife made extra pita because she thought I did not peel enough. What you see is about half of the Turkey meat ( We left the rest on the bird because we were only 6 people), stuffing both baked separately and from the turkey, mashed potatoes, green beens, sweet potato casserole and challah rolls that had just come out of the oven…

This was followed by pumpkin pie made by my mother and sweet potato pie made by my wife. My wife knows I donKt like either so she made me a delicious apple crumble with Granny Smith apples. My mother knew I didn’t like the other pies so she surprised us with a pecan pie.

I gained 5 pounds in 1 day.
