The first of many prior to Christmas trips is over. I can tick Glasgow off the list.

I can't say that I've seen much of the town. Our hotel was supposedly close to downtown, however the view from the window was not very encouraging to tramp into that direction:

The problem with short trips is that a soon as you've adjusted your language decoder to the local vernacular, you have to leave again. Nevertheless, both Mr.Mac and I found the time to have one of these Aberdeen Angus Fillet Steaks* au Poivre, Stovies and Wild Mushrooms at a restaurant called the ubiquitous chip.

This was really great, however being welcomed at home with a stupendously delicious Coq au Riesling lets those kind of memories fade away quite fast.

* In Swiss supermarkets you pay 76 Swiss Franks (60$) for a kilogram of Angus beef!

This is the first time I have heard that Mr Mac had stovies whilst in Scotland. After interrogation he tells me that they weren't very good. Shame. My Uncle Peter makes the best stovies in Scotland!

I love Angus fillet with spinaches and vegetables. I know, I know this combination contains lots of iron, but it is very tastefully.
