Tonight was bacon wrapped filets, mashed potatoes/gravy and green beans!

That's nice. Does it have a van down by the river?

On Tuesdays, yes. Why, you know the guy?

And you didn't invite me? What a cocksucker! Chuckle

Seriously though, that's one of my favorite meals. The closest meat market to us has 10 oz bacon wrapped fillets for $10. They are excellent too. Best bang for the $$ in regards to steak around here.

If you're ever travelling through the Omaha area, give me a shout. I'll have the grill going by the time you pull in the drive.

I'm serious!

That would be a hell of a nice bike ride up to Omaha.  Never been to that area.

It's actually a pretty area (for about 7 months out of the year). There's several places I go riding where the trees on either side of the road have filled out to a point they actually touch so it's like you're riding through a tunnel. Other places, it's wide open skies with windy, hilly roads.

Back on topic...now I am snacking on some big ol' seedless grapes! I am sure they are GMO and each one is likely stamped with "Product of China", but I don't care this time. I'm gonna eat these fat sum bitches and enjoy :)

What friggin? You've never cook duck? Or, may be you have.
Facepalm  I should have bought turkey.

Ah, I think I've got it! Elderberry syrup, Black Currants, and may citrus, with some amaretto, for cooking the duck!
Sound good? I was looking at my pans.

I have ceramic pand that are fairly deep. But, the raised grill won't fit in either one of them. They say it's best to roast it vertical or on a raised grill inside the pan so it won't fry the duck. My broiler pan is shallow, like an 1" and 5/8ths. I'm think duck is way greasy. And, I don't know if that broiler pan is deep enough for the duck's grease. Anyone know how much grease I should expect?

Save a little of the grease to make sauce...with a red wine reduction (emulsification) use all the stuff but the amaretto...

Pretty sweet to add to the elderberry syrup. Maybe not..

I never really met a pasta I didn't like.

Already cooked it earlier this morning for afternoon lunch. Came up with this: "Duck! The Overly Priced Meat."
Or, Duck. The only meat that's needlessly over priced.

But, I was told by the people that ate it with me that it was the best duck they've ever eaten. I just cannot comprehend why it costs as much as if does when it's mostly carcass. Then again, according to the packaging it was humanely raised without hormones and such. I understood they are greasy. I did fine it was great.

I sliced a sweet potato and threw some garlic cloves into the pan, stuffing them below the metal grill I used to raise the duck above the drippings on the last run of flipping it. By the end I scoped those out along with the blackcurrants placing them in a bowl while I prepped the salad greens. So, it was sliced duck with wing or drumstick, mixed salad greens, and sweet potato-garlic-blackcurrant stuffing type mix.

I did save the rest of the duck's greasy drippings. I'm thinking I'll use that in a chili. The gals at the bank seriously liked that idea. So, I told them about my turkey chili. That was extremely good. But, your red wine reduction sounds great too. I may try that. That may be very nice over some portobello mushrooms.
