I cooked my first duck. I like duck, but I've never actually cooked one. I slow roasted it and glazed with a sauce of soy sauce, molasses, honey, OJ and sriracha. DH was convinced he would hate it, but he didn't. He'll eat anything with sriracha, lol.

Parboiled some potatoes and fried them in rendered duck fat, and thawed a last-of-the garden tian with eggplant, tomatoes, summer squash and garlic, baked with a little gorgonzola on top.

Dessert is a trifle made with some leftover spiced bundt cake made with honey and coffee, vanilla pudding and cream whipped with Trader Joe's cocoa mascarpone and a little kahlua.

I made a chicken pot pie with the leftover chicken from a couple of nights ago. The crust was packaged puff pastry. It was the first time I ever used it, and was it stretchy! Guessing there will be a learning curve for me to get it just right.

Craig made a German skillet supper with brats, cabbage, apple, onion, bacon, beer. I made spaetzle tossed with browned butter/sage. No glitterati meal here, strictly peasant food tonight.

I thought Lady Gaga stole the show last night with her Sound Of Music tribute to Julie Andrews. She looked stunning in that gown singing the music her beautiful voice was meant to sing!! There should be an award for the best performance of the night!

I agree, Kay! The first dress Gaga wore, with what looked like a cereal box on top along with the red dishwashing gloves, didn't look so good, but the second one was beautiful. And Julie Andrews was the icing on the cake.

Agreed! She looked stunning, and what a beautiful voice! I got a little teary eyed when Julie Andrews came on stage and they hugged.

How right you are with your description of the first outfit! Will anything ever look more ghastly though than the sliced meat outfit with matching hat from a while back? I was proud of her how well she looked and acted last night. I think some of Tony Bennett's class has rubbed off on her since they made their new recording together..."Cheek to Cheek".

I got a bit teary too Cheryl. How tragic it is that Julie Andrews will never sing again.

I could've done without seeing Neil Patrick Harris on stage in just his tighty whities.
