Using up a few cheese ends for some mac and cheese. I made a sauce with Provolone, extra old cheddar, mozzerella, Parmesan, and some Spicy Pecorino.

Gorgeous first duck, Kay, hope the second duck meets or exceeds it!

We have leftover pineapple fried rice and pulled pork. The cherry tomatoes are starting to come on. Blueberries.

I'm making grilled Lebanese kibbee patties (seasoned ground beef and bulghur) with tzatziki sauce, spiced rice pilaf and a Greek-style salad. We'll also grill pita bread and top it with olive oil and Penzey's Zaa'tar seasoning. Yummo!

I was turned on to this recipe by FrankZ, and not only is it fun to do, the results are out of this world good. If we can do it, anybody can. We're open to side dish ideas please.

When I see a beautifully executed Peking Duck like this, I think homemade Bao, some chopped green onions and some extra sauce to make little ducky sammies maybe some steamed Kai Lan with Black Mushrooms on the side for a veg.

Thanks for the nice comments friends.
This was the duck dinner tonight, once again it was lots of fun for us, and I love sharing the kitchen with that man!

This recipe is fabulous!

The recipe for the kibbee called for 1 tbsp crushed dried mint, 1.5 tsp ground pepper, 1 tsp allspice and 1/2 tsp cinnamon for two pounds of ground beef. I used half of the spice mixture for the kibbee and the other half for the rice.

Dinner was really delicious.
