Fernley House

Home Cooking, Episode 9

When we were at Raley's in south Reno last week, Lisa spotted that they have duck, which you can't get in Fernley anymore, and she had us get one. Yesterday, she prepared a duck dinner. Her experience with doing these dinners shows, as she'd getting better with it.

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.
