Yes, I know … I thought I was done too. And then I remembered there were a couple of dishes that I forgotten to share.
Spatch-cocked Roasted Duck
I spent $12 for this frozen duck and after thawing and spatch-cocking (remove the backbone and flatten), I sprinkled the top and underside with salt, pepper and some paprika for colour, and roasted using the cooking instructions/time on the package. Both the breast were removed, wrapped up well and frozen for the future.
While roasting the duck, the fat was drained off periodically so I ended up with a bit over a cup of clean duck fat for future roasting and baking. BONUS!!!
Roasted duck leg, asparagus and boxed stuffing with duck gravy made from pan juices.
Home Made Semolina Pasta
I remembered I had some dried home made 3 pepper pasta noodles in the pantry so I cooked them up. The sauce was jarred Classico tomato and basil spaghetti sauce and hot Italian sausages. Another fast meal that didn’t cost a lot.
