I went outside and got some herbs, bay right outside the door.
And some salt, some brown sugar, pepper and rubbed the legs, wrapped them and put them in the refrigerator.
Today, I cooked the duck in the fat at 190 for seven hours. When the meat was tender, I let it cool. Tomorrow, I will pan fry them in some of the duck fat till crispy. And then, this is the very sad part, I will throw the duck fat out.
We keep track of the states that we have visited. I have a beautiful state map and we outline all of the visited states in brown. The ones that have left the nest try to get more states than us.
We have been to Oklahoma City. This time we will be traveling with our Labrador. She thinks that a car trip ends in camping. This should be interesting, this car trip will end in hotels. The next day, we will head to St. Louis MO, a new state, with a brief stop in Pittsburg Kansas, because we can. Then, on to Chicago. In the morning, we will head in the wrong direction to Racine Wisconsin for breakfast (getting another state!). Turn around and head to Michigan and family and then onward to PA.
Will we own the house? Who knows, it is a slow process at best. Our lending company has lost every paper that we faxed to them, which is a little disconcerting. I have high hopes.
