Dinner 2019

@robirdstx How many people would your goose serve for dinner? Remember what the bird weighed?


Can’t say how many our goose would have served, but I have been surprised at the amount of meat this bird has given us. The bird weighed about 10 1/2 pounds. The first meal was the legs for two. I did not finish my portion. The second meal was a half breast shared with the two of us, with a bit leftover that I had for breakfast the next day. When I pulled the rest of the meat together, I had just under a pound. Four ounces were used for the goose and noodles soup. Two cups were used in tonight’s pot pie, which made 8 servings, and most of the other half of the breast has gone into the freezer for a future use, along with some of the skin to make cracklins. The goose also gave us lots of fat and stock. Three cups of fat and a quart of stock have been added to the freezer, along with the carcass to make more stock when needed. A very generous goose!

Vegetarian for Matt.

I made enough dough for two pizzas but neither Moe or I wanted pizza so we had halibut instead. 

 

 

Only here can people have halibut a a default to home made pizza - love it!

Local halibut season is closed until around March.  Usually I can only buy frozen at this time of year.

 

But they have been bringing in fresh Norwegian halibut.

I saw this in the supermarket this evening:

It reminded me of the deer farms we passed on the road trip. Those deer looked really peaceful. Tonight we'll have venison burgers with avocado and a squeeze of lime.

It has been our tradition for over 40 years to have lobster and champagne on New Year's Eve.

After we moved to the West Coast we continued the tradition. One of the local markets flies in lobsters from Canada's east coast. Occasionally we would switch to local Dungeness crab.

This year I couldn't decided which to have. So we had both.

Shared two lobsters and one two pound Dungeness crab.

Platter for two.

We had fish tacos last night, as planned.

GF enjoyed a lobster the night before, because Sobeys had them on for $10.99/lb (still more than I'd like to pay, but the market is up these days). I opted for pea soup instead, because I wasn't in a crustacean sort of mood. Also, just as a general thing, to my taste pea soup>lobster in almost all circumstances. :P
