Yep, another installment of my self-aggrandizing food posts. You are going to sit there and like it !

Nacho scotcho night!! Me and a few friends had a best nacho competition and finished with an Aberlour scotch into the evening. My friend Alex did gourmet nachos – pickled onion, plantain, and ground beef baked individually, while I did standard nachos (w bacon) along 5 dips – homemade guac, roasted tomato salsa, black bean and cilantro dip, sour cream, and homemade queso with megaheat. She probably won.
Seared/roasted duck breast with lentil puree, caramelized apples and walnuts, greeny veg. Here’s to using duck fat for everything. Hiyoyoyoy!
