Dinner Journal

Last night's dinner.
Duck, roasted in the oven according to the instructions in the wonderful How to Cook Everything. I didn't add enough water during the cooking though and wound up setting off Howard's smoke alarm because the grease started smoking.
I made Kasha (buckwheat) to go with and we had salad with tomatoes, greens, and olives.
The neck and giblets are going to go into the stock I'm going to make from the remains of the duck and frozen chicken remains. Chicken stock isn't cheap so freezing it is probably what I'll do.
The oven continues to be a problem, with the new thermometer showing a lower temp than the combination thermometer, which shows a lower temp than the oven's own temperature sensor.
