first, thanks so much to those who commented on last week's giveaway. i thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone's thankful words, it's nice to get to know who my readers are without being too intrusive & in your face. most importantly, it gave me some perspective one things going on in my own life.
for thanksgiving this year i opted to stay home. i'm not a fan of turkey and without the obligation of making a turkey spread, i decided to tackle duck. i love duck.
about four years ago i watched a kylie kwong cooking show and she made a soy sauce duck that has haunted me since. the recipe doesn't have all the ingredients the show did but i found the episode on youtube, only it's been dubbed in farsi or arabic. if anyone can tell me what i'm to do with soy sauce broth after, let a sister know.
a few adjustments, as usual i did not follow exact measurements, my pot is only 4L big, i threw in a lemongrass stalk (it was lonely in the fridge, i didn't know what else to do with it) and i couldn't find proper chinese pancakes so i used tortilla wraps instead. i enjoyed it, but i think now that i have cooked with duck, i can leave it to the professionals and just order it out. i'd like to make this recipe with chicken instead.
i hope everyone had a loverly turkey break, i spent four days doing things at my leisure, cooking & baking, getting to know my netflix and hanging out with a dear friend.
we watched Love&Other Drugs, which i recommend, if not only for Jake Gylenhaal's fantastic ass.
