Viaduct ? & Duck Soup?

 

Not talking about The Marx Brothers, The well known old-time vaudevillians.

 

Why a duck? Because no one likes turkey for Thanksgiving!

 

Got a  Three-Buck-Duck. Duck at $3.00 a lb is expensive compared to $0.39 a lb for turkey.  I prepared the duck Peking style because that’s what everyone wanted.

 

Peking duck is traditionally served on a steamed bun, like a sandwich. Just to be different, I used Italian bread for the duck meat duckwiches with Hoisin sauce, and the anothers with Bazlama bread with shattering crispy duck skin. Both sandwiches come with the very last indoor ripened garden tomatoes.

 

What happened to the duck bones? Duck soup with potato dumplings.

 

Speaking of three-buck-duck, a bottle of Champagne Cuvee Dom Perignon 1980 was served, way above Three-Buck-Chuck.

 

It was a Happy Thanksgiving meal.

Felt hungry about 8 pm on Thanksgiving day, so pizza had to be made.  Sausage, mushroom and jalapeño .

In preparation for our hunter friend coming on Wednesday, I made a huge batch of egg rolls yesterday.  Had those, noodles and sticky wings last night.

Did you use your air fryer to cook the egg rolls?

Not a curry. Kabocha, parsnips and jack beans. Some kabocha was cooked first to make a thick sauce, then the cream was added later. Dark stuff is actually fresh basil mixed with olive oil. I ate the first half with Spätzle.

Second half I ate with my own kelp pici (hand-rolled pasta).

And what became of the second half of the pici.

Eating money.........

 

We landed again at Tokyo Narita airport and took the train to Kobe as sheer lunatics to have dinner at Kobe.

 

So our friends invited us us to Mouriya in Kobe to have some Kobe Beef.

 

The cuts of beef were Grade A5 which is supposed to be the top grade.

 

and here it is:

with certificates as well. Good thing they did not give us a DNA test as well.

No idea what the docs say but please translate for me if you wish.

 

Taste wise and the bottom line is that we were not bowled over as the meat is too tender for our taste and I am more used to feel a bite on my steak.

Kobe grade A5 and you are eating softer and tender money........Mind you I don't even like Truffles Piedmont or Périgord.

So Aberdeen Angus is still our favourite and we love Scotland and it's people.

 

Oh well, Argentina ere vee come........Love Tango!
