I'm using a couple of recipes to try to make a simpler version of duck a l'orange. I just butchered my first duckling - it's about 5.5 pounds. I trimmed the excess fat from it and it's now rendering in a saucepan to be used for roasted potatoes to go with the roast duck breasts. I'll save the leg quarters for another day. I also have the carcass browning in another pan to use in making duck stock for the sauce. Not sure what the veg will be.

Steve likes the thin style, I like the thick American style

That all sounds lovely Jab

Kylie where are his parents from? I am not familiar with the pancake casserole thing it could be regional though .

We had a full English breakfast today after a long New Year's Day walk to start the day. Then later on just hot roast chicken butties .

Our Black-Eyed Peas and Greens were fantastic. Enough leftover to make two meals for work this week.

The seafood soup turned out well. I used a can of coconut milk and seasoned it with ginger, garlic, curry and cumin plus S&P of course! I wish I could have added potato to make it a nice thick chowder, but I can't have them for another 5 months!

The stew couldn't have turned out better. This is such a simple dish to make; I don't know why we don't have it more often. My wife had seconds and I had thirds.
