Lisa says she tried some different things with which to cook this duck than the past few holiday meals, and she turned it more often and cooked it at a lower temperature than the instructions said, but cooked it longer. It came out very nice and juicy.
Kuma Bear looks on as we prepare to have dinner. This is similar to our holiday meals, but this wasn't a special occasion, other than probably the final roast of the season as it will soon be too hot for cooking things for so long.
Rather than try to make duck soup by simmering the carcass for a few days over the stove, we just picked off such meat off the bones as we could after we finished dinner. (There wasn't much left; a duck is just about right for the two of us.) I had the leftovers for lunch today. Delicious!
We had intended on going into Reno straight after work to do grocery shopping; unfortunately, Day Jobbe made urgent calls on my time this afternoon, so by the time I got free, it was too late in the day. Ideally, we want to go in the early afternoon, as it appears to be less busy then, and we definitely don't want crowds. Even with face masks, it's difficult to do social distancing when the stores are busy.
