I am meant to be cooking duck breasts tonight - the recipe is from her new book.

I sneekily looked at the recipe in Waterstones and bought the ingredients.

Now I can't remember what I am meant to do.

We haven't had any BF vs FF spats recently wink

Beginning to think of improvising! grin

I would.....a recipe should be a template for your own imagination rather than a script to be followed exactly.

<she says in a slightly poncetastic fashion> wink

and it isn't without irony that the advert to the right is for Tana Ramsay's book, pmsl grin

Oh my goodness - that is so funny (the advert).... grin

if you click on it it takes you to the amazon page and there are thumbnails of some of the recipe pages......but nothing ducklike unfortunately!

hf128219 Fri 17-Oct-08 20:26:18

Ah well it is turning into a recipe of Tana's/Delia's/Mary Berry's/Everyone else's who is on my book shelf in the kitchen......

LackaDAISYcal Fri 17-Oct-08 20:29:27

let me know how it turns out!!

and next time, don't be so bloody cheap and buy the sodding book wink

or put it on your Christmas wish list grin

It was very good! Just roasted them in the oven and then made a sauce with blackcurrant jam, red wine etc.

Daisy - have you seen how many cook books I already have?? smile

LackaDAISYcal Fri 17-Oct-08 22:31:33

I'm guilty of too many as well...DH is always grumbling as I never have time to cook anything nice these days; it's always past or spag bol or chilli or cottage pie blush

The duck sounds nice though smile

hf128219 Fri 17-Oct-08 22:45:20

As an aside is your real name Daisy? I obviously get the play on lack·a·dai·si·cal.

LackaDAISYcal Fri 17-Oct-08 22:54:28

No! It's my cat's name. I was daisybump when i first joined (again what we called the cat, not because I was pregnant), then various other daisy incarnations.

this one came about as a nod to DH and I's less than conscientious attention to birth control measures when I was still BFing DD blush

Baby is due in 3 weeks!!

hf128219 Fri 17-Oct-08 23:01:42

OMG! Good luck with the birth. My dd is Daisy! smile

LackaDAISYcal Fri 17-Oct-08 23:07:30

DD would have been; if the cat hadn't already had the name but when I got the cat I wasn't planning on children!

off to haul my fat ass up to bed now.

"Talk" to you soon smile
