Friday Dinner Plans 4/10/15

I often buy larger pieces of meat, take what I need for a recipe and freeze the remainder for another meal.

I am currently defrosting some bits of pork left over from something or other. I'm planning a stir-fry with the pork and some onion, mushroom, red pepper and pea pods. I'll make some rice to go with it.

What goodies are you planning for tonight?

Duck Day is here.
Shake rattle and roll....get into that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans!

The long saved duck has defrosted and this is D Day. It will be a most of the day project and after much procrastinating I'll be following Frank Z's recommendation
to the letter with the Hungry Mouse recipe.

I'm nervous, but excited to get started on my first date with a duck.

We had Haddock with Cider Sauce.

Laid the haddock on a bed of mixed veg, carrot, mange tout, baby corn, asparagus and leeks. Some Jersey royals and a salad completed the meal.

Quite a lot there but I've been doing man things today, sawing and chopping wood, digging the garden etc so hunnnnnnngry!

Would have looked neater but my leisurely cooking session turned into a frantic rush.

Still looks nice, Wysh.

Kayelle, I bet I'm not the only one who wants to know how your Duck Date went tonight.



We're probably eating the leftover hot dogs and potato salad. It is opening day in Cleveland (a rather inauspicious start) and I've been busy switching dish sets around in all my cupboards. Don't be surprised, though, if I come back with a menu change...I have a real craving for mac and cheese.

I had a bowl of "leftovers soup". It was quite good. I may have a sandwich later.

For the gum impaired, jello and quiche. Only quiche for me. Oh, maybe a cookie or two also.

The day date with the duck was delightful and delectable!

We had great fun with this recipe and I appreciated how very detailed it was. We even had duck liver pate' on toast for our lunch. We followed the recipe to the letter and we agree it's the best duck we've ever eaten anywhere. Turning it four times was done with the handles of cooking forks inserted into each end. When it was all completed, I cut out the backbone with my kitchen shears, and quartered it for easy serving. One of the best things, is we have a full cup of rendered duck fat for the gift that keeps on giving.

We had glorified green salad and a mix of seasoned brown and wild rice with it.
Dang Frank....you were right and thank you!

Kayelle's duck

I tried to download the recipe, but the recipe was 19 pages, and there were a total of 166 pages with all the comments that were downloaded! It took forever just to get the pages I needed to print the recipe. I downloaded the recipe to a PDF, and if it comes out well, we have it forever!
UPDATE!!
As you can see by the previous post, this one is a keeper!
It had to be the best duck I have ever eaten. I have eaten duck all over the world, including Peking Duck in Beijing (Peking) and this was better, perhaps because of the love and fun that went into it.
