Apparently the boys like duck. Who knew?* They were very keen to help me break it down this morning.

This is what it looked like last night, for Karen and me, for Valentine's dinner:

...and now the residues are in the fridge and the stockpot and not the cats' stomachs, alas, and there may very well be duck-and-mushroom risotto for dinner tonight.

Around the duck, you will observe fingerlings and turnips braised alongside, cabbage with salt pork that braised separately; not shown, the sweet-and-sour herby orange sauce I concocted, made with the sour oranges from Laina & Cathyn's little treelet. Which it should hurry to grow into a vast and productive tree, because oy yummy. Those are marmalade-bearing branches, I tell you. Or will be.


*Well, they did, obviously. They would have shared this info yesterday, if we had shared the duck. Apparently.
