This years X-Mas dinner......
2 whole 6,5 hour slow roasted duck's (6, hours at around 125 to 150 degree celcius, shifting up and down as the oven heats and cools on in it's own pace) using sour apples (Belle de boskoop apples) and prunes as stuffing. Salt and pepper. The good thing about those apples, are that they are extremely sour and goes well with the heavy meat. Then standard boiled potatoes, caramalised small potatoes (melted sugar with butter), red capage, and gravy made from duck fond and red wine and other good stuff. Just the standard Danish brown X-Mas sauce with heavy cream and other goodies. Potato chips and potato snacks as well.
However.... I made a BIG mistake. I needed red wine for the sauce, and we had a bottle around. So I popped the cork and used it. When my father in law came for dinner, he was like "Dude... What the fuck!", and it turned out that the wine was a 38 dollar bottle of Amarone from 2013. And I was like "Ups!". Anyway... It hightened the sauce big time, and I have never served such a deluxe edition. Well.... Not my fault that I don't know anything about wine prices and that someone choose to give us such an expensive one as a gift. I needed it for cooking and it was our only bottle in the house at that time on the day.
And yes.... I did all this on my own, only with a slight help from my father in law. He did the finishing touches on the sauce (pepper, more wine and so on), as he have like way more experience in cooking than me. (For obvious reasons that is)
Don't eat stuff off a 15 year old never cleaned cpu cooler.
Those cakes make you sick....
