Yepper! You are reading that right
D is for Duck.
It seems we all either get fed fancy or make fancy food around
(I am a getting fed fancy person)
and to me, a duck dish seems fancy. Well not a normal
night of the week dinner dish anyway.
Have you ever heard of a Turducken?
It's a chicken stuffed into a duck which is stuffed into a turkey.
Sounds a weee bit hectic to me but to each their own right?
quick jaunt down memory lane ::
When I was younger I had a friend Haley. Her dad would go duck hunting
every year and oh boy, he would bring home a lot of them.
Haley's mom would make us duck nuggets. You know like chicken nuggets.
I remember them being so very good.
I went ahead and searched high and low for something a bit easier to tackle ::
(actually I just went to my favorite recipe site but whatever) :o)
