It does not matter if I am on a lounge chair on a tropical beach or at a Castle in Scotland. There is just something calming about them both. Yet they open up different food/drink senses. A nice cool umbrella drink in the shade makes me want to make some tropical drinks. On a rainy day at a Castle brings thoughts of home made Scotch Broth.
Here's a Tip
Treat yourself. We went to a great restaurant in a park setting; 90 acres. Great food and atmosphere!
Add Some Flavor
Ever find yourself with just a jar of pasta sauce and no sausage on hand? You can get that flavor by simply adding some fennel powder to the sauce/gravy.
Whether its chicken tenders, roasted chicken, or chicken breasts; if you want to add flavor without orange liqueurs or you ran out of orange juice just add some orange marmalade.
Hello and thanks for coming back here. I know it has been a little quiet, I have been working on my Scotland trip. Very excited and will share with you later. Next up I am working on a blog. I am finding my way around so it could take a little time. In the meantime want to share a tip that was on the Rachel Ray show. A woman on the show used what appeared to be a pepper grinder and I think it was Oreo cookies (minus the filling) broke it up and put in it the grinder, and ground it on top of some items. What a great idea! Think of all the other things you could put in there to flavor foods/desserts.
The above picture is from the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Edinburgh is a fascinating city. It has a bit of everything. So get out your explorer shoes you are in for a treat no matter which way you turn.
For those of you not in my neck of the woods but are craving some Scottish foods/treats. Stewarts in Kearny will ship it to you. Nice selection of meat pies, sausages, black pudding, chocolates etc. And if you watch Outlander; Outlander kitchen has a recipe for a Drambuie Rhubard Sour if your interested.
