Today was good.
I started making dinner last night while Adolfo was at work. This Thanksgiving was one of the better ones at that. In spite of the fact that nobody wanted to come here with us. We were invited to eat at 2 other places, but I declined for the most part out of s sense of my own commitment to the holiday and wanted to make dinner. This is the only holiday I look forward to each year and I get to cook the kinds of food I love. I made:
- Duck Galantine
- Whipped Yams with cinnamon and maple syrup
- Baked Potatos
- Marinated Squash in a Balsamic Vinegrette
- Homemade Cranberry Sauce
- Biscuits; Orange and Italian Herb
- Pumpkin Pie for Desert
I boned the duck last night and saved them for future use. I layed out the full breast with extra skin, having removed the thigh and leg and wings. Took the thigh meat and any other stray meat; the giblets cooked in avacado oil and put them through the meat grinder; mixed it with italian bread crumbs and chopped mushroom into a filling. I layed it on the breast and rolled it, tied it and then seasoned it. I slow roasted it over more than 2 hours at 250 degrees and less.
The duck was tender and delicious. Not fatty. I wish I had a camera to take pictures through the whole process. Yummmmmmm
