the duck confit is probably not what i was thinking of, in the end..thinking more of something to use as a filling of some sort, like bdls taquito thingy, but not fried...is the confit pate like in texture or when you take the meat off the bones do you kind of 'smoosh' it with your fingers, then put it back under the duckfat? then you serve it with what? baguette? cheese? preserves? the duckfat itself?..so its eaten as a small plate sort of thing? cold?...sounds pretty straightforward enough in prep as basically the duck does all the work really...petals, do you use just the legs or the whole duck? can you just buy duck legs? all those ducks without legs...like the frogs....always wonder about them!
leeniak, when is your contest, and do you get to decide what to cook, or does someone tell you what you must do? gordan 'ram it' ramsey...thats worth the price of a ticket, just for the fodder!...i just can't stand that guy..i know its all about ratings and money and perhaps its just his tv personality that is so obnoxious and not the real person, but anyone that makes money deliberately belittling the most pathetic, is 'scum on the ole bum shoe', in my book..i know we've had this discussion before, so won't belabor it.....as for your coworker...man, what if he gets dizzy and falls down and hits his head on the way to the floor...worse case scenario is that he seriously injures himself( think brain), then sues...the workmen's comp lawyers will be like maggots on a dead horse......does your medical insurance allow for some sort of medical leave or compensation? don't you have socialized medicine up there? you're a smart cookie, leeniak..and no one wants to cut a good coworkers hours/pay, but i think it could be a potentially dangerous,potentially costly situation...just my 5 cents(inflation, go figure!)
okay, on a lighter note...if you had but one cookbook to keep out of your whole 100+ book collection, which one would you choose?...good day all, hope you are all well.....one more night before my 'fetal monday', which i have missed for the past several weeks due to extra caterings...i am truly toast!....hope i did not offend anyone with my rantings, truly not my intent..ciao
p.s....whats a leeniak?
