A french style recipe for duck 'confit'. Marinading the 4 legs overnight with bayleaves, fresh sage, garlic and some salt. Slowly simmered today in a little water (can be white wine) for 2 hours. Had them with some small new potatoes (cooked in the same pan) and sliced runner beans. (The other 2 legs I will heat up till crisp tomorrow with potato wedges).

SO has occasionally been making pizza at her new part-time job so she wanted to try it at home. So tonight, I made a batch of dough and defrosted some sauce so she could make the crust from the dough and assemble the pizza. We settled on a roast chicken and jalapeño pizza. It was pretty good!

Tis the Christmas season and the community choir I sing in had 2 concerts this weekend. I decided to get take out tonight. DH was nice and went to KFC and picked up a bucket of chicken with all the sides and biscuits for us.

Grey and coolish here today and it seems as though the humidity is up a bit, too, which makes the temp feel cooler than it really is. So....traditional Sunday dinner straight from the comfort food department.

Roast beef with mushrooms and onions, lotsa gravy, mashed taters, steamed broccoli bits, iced tea and the last of our Little Debbie Christmas tree cookie cakes.

Sorry to hear about your tummy.

I was on the BRAT tonight, too. As in BRATwurst. All of the brat talk in another thread made me hungry for them. Of course, we had the requisite homemade sauerkraut as the side.

Now if my Packers had only played well today, instead of looking like a second rate high school team, it would have been a good day all around.

I roasted some chicken wings today so will be having some of those.

I went to the farm stand yesterday morning, so hopefully this afternoon's dinner will involve these beauties. I've never made swiss chard before, but those big colorful leaves looked so beautiful that I couldn't resist. Six freshly picked enormous leaves for $1. I'm thinking of sautéeing them in a little bacon fat, garlic, onions, and a little lemon juice, and I have some pine nuts I could toast to top.

I was excited to see the huge green tomatoes - I've been craving fried green tomatoes for a long time.


What a find that is Cheryl..Yumm Yummm.

So glad you have a keeper DH too, GG. Feel better soon!

Thanks. That sounds good. Once I'm past this, bratwurst will be on the menu sometime. There's a specialty butchery nearby that makes their own sausages and other goodies. I want to try theirs.

I added some pickled beets to the fried cabbage at the last minute.
