Busy Holidays

So much to catch up on.  The holidays were extremely busy.  I can't say I got much rest.  There were a few points of interest though.  During the holidays, we took to kids to Ripley's Aquarium of Canada in downtown Toronto (

After that, we went to Guu Izakaya (  Picture a tapas style Japanese bar - that's Guu.  Food was awesome!  You are greeted very loudly as you enter the restaurant and when you leave.  What a great experience.

And lastly, for Christmas Eve, we made bacon infused bourbon following Timothy Ferriss' method in the 4 Hour Chef - Woo Hoo!  That was some powerful bourbon.  Fat washing was traditionally used to refine alcohol. So what happens when you put a flavoured fat in? A unique taste experience like none other, with a swizel stick of fried bacon no less. Who said I can't eat my bacon and drink it, too?
