Duck à l’orange

This morning the Captain caught me feeding the ducks while still in my pjs. “Are you trying to fatten them up?” he asked.

Later on, word seemed to have spread, as having left the ducks of the Stratford Canal behind, we encountered a much less inhibited bunch on the Grand Union. They were VERY keen to say hello.


For tea, we had asparagus cooked in my new asparagus kettle. I bought it to sterilise bottles in. Doesn’t everyone? That it can steam asparagus too is a bonus. It went nicely with the duck and orange sauce. The Captain eyed the meat suspiciously. “Just what exactly have you been doing today …?”

Do you think it is maybe taking foraging a bit far?
