Still trying to enjoy the latter part of fall here.  I've just roasted a chicken.  It's cooling now and I will strip the meat off the bones and use all the roasted veggies and carcass to make stock tonight.  Whatever chicken we don't eat today is going into a pot pie tomorrow yum!

This chicken stretched a long way.  We enjoyed it roasted, made soup and had enough stock for the freezer, and then I made pot pie with the left over meat.

Speaking of chicken pot pie Miss KK, did you read that thread where chefedb was talking about the pressed chicken paste? AGH!! 

Yours looks very ONO-LICIOUS!

Tonight is a test run of the scratch made raviolis, meatballs and sausage (a side Cesar salad and Italian bread)

that I've made for a dinner party on Wednesday ... wish me luck!

I just put duck in a well seasoned brine.  I'll take it out before I go to work and let it dry in the ice box all day so it crisps up nicely.

scratch made raviolli with red sauce made from san marzano tomatoes (canned from Italy), served with meatballs and sausage, YUM!!

this was DH's plate, a bit larger than mine

for me, no red sauce, tomatoes don't always agree with me

as well, note the smaller sized plate, as well only one meatball and half of a sweet sausage

I REALLY could have eaten more, but there's wine, bread and salad, OH and ice cream for dessert

Our guests will love this meal!

Last night I did 2 chuck roasts with roasted veggies.  Slow cooking and cool weather just go hand in hand.  This weekend or the next it will be sausage and 3 cheese manicotti licklips.gif

Those are nice looking ravioli kgril.  I don't like much red sauce myself, it brings back too many memories of Olive Garden.  Also, have you thought about tossing your ravioli in with the sauce rather than laying it on top?  It makes a huge difference in flavor and texture.  What sauce did you serve your portion with?

@ KK: Your roasted chicken looks like a Julia Child dish !

@ Kgirl: Nice looking ravioli. I can see sage butter , or basil butter, even terragon if your not into tomato sauce, even a walnut or pistacchio pesto, or a mushroom garlic sauce. Did you top off your pasta with olive oil and parm ?

 

@ Mike: Something tells me that its going to be a tender duck.

DING DING DING!

Petals on my plate of pasta was EVOO (really nice and fruity), PARM, freshly ground black pepper and torn flat left parsley.  Did I mention those are two cheese raviolis?  Whole Milk Ricotta and Parmesan reggiano.  I like to do all different types of condimento rather than tomato.  Fresh herbs are hard to come by here in the middle of the desert.  I tried to grow a small herb pot garden this past spring, but the bugs took over.

 

And Miss KK, Mister K~girl LOVES his pasta served this way, tons of marinara!  I tried to serve the pasta as a separate course once, just tossed lightly with a small ladle of sauce and that did not go over well.  He's very set in his ways when it comes to what he calls Italian food, or what I call American-Italian.  Like my Moms says, he wouldn't make in Italy, he'd starve  redface.gif

I'm with your plate K-girl. If you serve me a dish like your husband's, i can't eat it. I hate enormous plating. I rather go small portions and repeat.

The duck was delicious - tender, crispy and great flavor from the brine.  I roasted some small gold potatoes and Compari tomatoes to go with a salad of field greens and a simple dressing.

Lovely duck!  I like how it's roasted elevated to defat.

 

Kgirl, your husband is like a member of this forum except he's the UNfoodie member lol.  Bless you for putting up with so much food nonsense.  My hubby thank-god eats and loves anything I put in front of him, thank goodness he doesn't grace me with too many "opinions" lol.
