Why A Duck?
Why-a no chicken?
As usual, my husband was in charge of food for our fall get-together. Last year we had a pig roast, and when he rummaged around in the freezer last month and discovered the very last bag of roast pork in there, he decided that this year we would do something that would leave us with less left over.
So his idea for this year was "A Fowl Weekend," and he planned to roast Cornish hens, a duck, a chicken, a turkey, and a goose (but we couldn't get one).
He put them in the big roasting pan and roasted them over the fire. They were delicious.
So that's why a duck - and a chicken, too.
