that's exciting, josh! roast duckling is one of my very favorite holiday foods! how did you like it? do you have a nice bowl of rendered duck fat now? i'm running low on duck fat myself. that may be argument enough to justify my buying and cooking a duckling even without the benefit of a major holiday in sight....

I simmer a bit, then take it off the heat, stir in some parmesan and pour in a generous splash of vodka, and then a big BIG splash of whipping cream. I serve this quickly with a filled pasta of some kind, usually ravioli.

If you're lazy, you can buy the jarred stuff too!
Thanks. That sounds great. It sounds like I could just start with my homemade sauce and add the Parm, vodka, and whipping cream. I think it would be a hit here. Thanks!

Isn't it fun to cook duck? I serve it every Christmas. We just love it.

The beef and green bean stir fry looks amazing! I have something similar planned later this week with asparagus. Hope it looks as good as yours.
