Meal report

I described our Thanksgiving meal in this post:

pan-roasted duck breast—I’ve made the recipe at the link before, and it’s marvelous—along with cooked whole-grain spelt sautéed in a little butter with pecans and dried cranberries, and also steamed kale sautéed in a little olive oil with onion, garlic, and diced Meyer lemon: protein, starch, greens, and a little oil. Well, with the duck, probably more than a little. Plus a bottle of wine. I’m looking forward to it.

Mostly as described, but to the kale dish I added 1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped the same size as the diced Meyer lemon, and that worked out well. The spelt was delicious: I sautéed the pecans in the butter for a few minutes before adding the spelt, dried cranberries, and some gochujang sauce—just a little, to give it body.

Everything tasted great, and the wine suggested some years back by Jacques Melac was totally wonderful.

Now we are enjoying the afterglow. No sign of kitties: Molly’s on her bed, Megs is on hers, and they are oddly incurious.
