January Challenge: Day 8

A while back I picked up a fresh duck on special, chopped it up into bits, and the maryland pieces have been sitting in the freezer for a while. I like duck, but it does need careful cooking, or else it can end up tough (and it was). I think I prefer the occasional Peking Duck from a Chinese BBQ. 

I cooked the duck legs with a thai red curry sauce, snake beans, capsicum, and bok choy. I also found a packet of microwave jasmine rice - good to get that out of the cupboard!

Tonight I tried to feed the baby some of the dahl from last night mixed with some rice. To his credit, he ate about 3 mouthfuls before he decided it was too spicy and spat it out (he prefers his lentils plain). We settled on some mashed tuna and vegies in cheese sauce (another find in the freezer).

I was also lucky enough to be able to swap a jar of my zucchini and pumpkin chutney for some guava jelly - yum!
