Man, my posts have such appallingly obvious names, I'm just too lazy to think of something creative..

I mentioned Joe spent the weekend hunting; he went with a buddy from work and they were gone Friday, Saturday, and most of Sunday hunting duck and geese. They didn't see the grizzly bear I mentioned in my zoo post, but they DID see bear tracks - good thing Joe is handgun-happy, so besides their rifles they had plenty of protection! They didn't have incredible luck, but Joe DID shoot two ducks, of which he just brought home the breasts (whew, I was kinda worried I'd have the task of plucking a duck - ick!). He found a yummy-looking recipe, which we made last night with the 4 breasts, and sure enough, it was delicious. Delicious if you like duck, I suppose, I hear there are people who don't. It's simply duck breast sprinkled with lemon-pepper seasoning and wrapped in bacon (make sure you soak the toothpicks in water before cooking) and then baked for 20 minutes. For those who were wondering why they're so dark, they're not burned - duck is just closer to a red meat than to chicken. Yummmm! We finished our elegant meal with sundaes from McDonalds and a trip to the play-place :)

Sounds delicious.. kind of. I'm not too sure if I've ever had duck, lol.

Duck is pretty tasty.

Could spiders be next on Joe's hunting list? Yikes!
