Maybe 10 years ago, maybe longer, I was introduced to this snack by my now late brother in law @nosebleed. He had brought it from Costco in the US.

I found it once at Costco in Toronto then never again. Today, in order to help my wife with the heavy stuff like bread flour, I went with her to Costco.

In order to try to find a shorter line we cut across the snack aisle and… There it was!

I picked up 3 ( one for my brother). Now I don’t plan to stock up the way I have with whisky, but I’m really glad to see it again. Hopefully this will become a regular item.

Easter Dinner: Lamb Shank Curry with Eggplant. There was a Bourbon Barrel Aged Red Wine to go with it...

@YakLord Sounds like an interesting wine. How was it?

@BlueNote It was this one: 1924wines.com/wines/… I've had a few bourbon cask aged reds and for the most part they've all been pretty good. I think it works best with a red blend, though, as that way the bourbon flavour doesn't overwhelm the subtleties of a single variety wine.

@YakLord Lamb at my house for Easter too. Sous vide for about 8 hours and finished on the grill.

@TracerBullet Nice! The shanks were done low and slow: 2.5hrs simmering in the gravy.

Made pastrami: 2.5lb brisket, 6 days in brine, rubbed with a ground coriander, black pepper, and smoked paprika spice rub, covered with foil over steam bath & cooked at 300'F for 2.5 hours. So tasty! Will make Reuben Sandwiches for lunch tomorrow...

@YakLord I'm salivating. That's some serious looking rye bread; not for the faint of heart.

@BlueNote Thanks! I actually managed to get my daughter to try one (went a little lighter on the sauerkraut for her), and she enjoyed it, so that's a win in my books.

Just made a prawn and clam (a rare treat on these isles, bizarrely!) linguine with a Laborde au Chateau Chablis 2020. Loads of lemon, parsley, garlic, chilli, butter and wine for the sauce. One of those times where everything comes together perfectly! I thought there was too much lemon but it cut through the richness of the butter perfectly.

I do love Chablis and this was a crisp, clean and zingy accompaniment to the other ingredients. Just beautiful!

Followed by some mango and passion fruit tart with whipped cream and an espresso. I am now one satiated and happy man grin

No photo, but you all know what a roast turkey looks like. I could not resist the opportunity to buy a 14.42 lb bird for $ 5.34.

I'll be going to Thanksgiving Day dinner at one of my sisters' houses and my brother-in-law is cooking paella with no turkey at the meal. I love paella, but I also look forward to the holiday turkey. Now I have both available. Good thing I like turkey. 14 lbs is a lot of bird for one person. .

@Victor Plus a hot Turkey sandwich is always an option the next day.

@Victor That should be under steal of a deal.

We did not have after Thanksgiving Turkey sales this year for some reason. My wife usually picks up a bird or 3 for under $20.

Boar Hock Soup (contains no Boar and no Hocks) with Beer Bread...still very tasty. The grocery did actually have pig hocks, but I used boneless pork shoulder roast instead.
