Duck was a Dud

8 years ago

Took the wrapper off the duck we were planning to have for dinner today, and it was a mess. Looked like it had been shot down with a howitzer. And it was a farm raise, store bought bird. It was missing one leg, and that side was also stripped of it's skin and slashed into the back bone. I don't have the receipt for it anymore or I would have marched it right back tomorrow when I go to town.

DH took one look at it and declared it was going into the garbage. It looked that bad.

So, I had to thaw a standing rib roast for dinner instead. The roast was excellent, served with mashed taters, broccoli, Yorkshire pudding and lots of gravy. Definitely NOT our traditional Christmas dinner, but then the duck isn't either.
