Last night for Matt's b-day we went to Automat to enjoy some U.S.D.A Nebraska corn fed beef and it was everything we wanted.  A taste of home, great atmosphere and awesome service.  Matt is an old soul at heart and it's one of the qualities I love about him.  Last night was all about him and he enjoyed a bourbon with one ice cube, a little Frank Sinatra and was all smiles with his Nebraska hamburger.  All he was missing was a cigar.

For his birthday I bought him a nice bottle of one his favorite Scotch Whisky since he is a Scotch Man. He is very particular how he drinks it and thought I would share Matt's "Proper" way to taste it.

  • Add a small amount of lukewarm water to release the flavor of the whisky.  
  • Then cover your glass with the palm of your hand and firmly shake
  • Place your nose deep into the glass and take 2 sharp sniffs
  • Take a sip from the glass and swirl it around your mouth before swallowing it
  • Enjoy the flavors!

As I promised on facebook here is the pie I made him.  Its a Reese's Peanut Butter and Hershey Chocolate Pie.  I could not find graham cracker crust or graham crackers so I improvised and made my own from Golden Oreo's.  It taste really good!  Definitely recommend it.  The decorating was lacking on it because it was overflowing.
