Turkey pizza meatloaf (I had pizza on the mind but planned on meatloaf so why not make a pizza-flavored meatloaf? :lol: ), salad and maybe some green beans with almonds.

We're having duck again tonight but differently. This time I am searing it (keeping the fat for roasting truffled fries) and eating it with a roasted plum sauce. Divine. Am making funky sweet potato fries and grilling zucchini with mint vinaigrette. If we had leftover risotto I would be making arancini! Next time...

Leftovers, but they were exquisite. Defrosted twice baked potatos reheated on the grill, along with 1/2 a stuffed poblano pepper and left over gyro meat.

Dessert was a couple melon ball sized scoops of rum raisin ice cream.

Finally not feeling like I am half dead! After not cooking for over a week I am back in the kitchen, doing what I love most. No longer very nauseous. Just getting over an intestinal infection. So, we're having simple:

- roast chicken with herbs, garlic, etc. under the skin and roasted lemons - makes great jus with a splash of white wine

- roasted potatoes and baby carrots

- minted peas

Not quite ready for dessert yet...

So happy to be cooking! :D

What kind of duck do you eat? I got a muscovy duck the last time from my CSA, and I killed it. Much different than whatever type of duck I got in the store. Any suggestions from the culinary wizard??? :)

Lots! Muscovy, mallard, domestic tame (my brother raises them). Are you looking for suggestions for roasting a whole duck, duck breasts or other (i.e. foie gras, duck confit)? I have tons of duck recipes as duck is one of my favourite things in the world to eat! :) Do you want recipes or cooking techniques?

I decided to make pasta sauce with lamb sausages instead of ground chuck. The flavor is EXCELLENT! Compliments the sundried tomato/basil pasta sauce very well. Used the usual amt. of fresh garlic, chopped onions, and fresh herbs. Served over gluten-free pasta.

Spinach/field greens salad and garlic multi-grain Rudi's toast completed it. Oh yum!
