20 Mile Dinner

I have duck breast in my freezer along with vegetables from my garden.  In keeping with the theme of the 100-mile diet, I am enjoying a 20 mile dinner tonight.

The duck breast is from one of the local Hutterite colonies.  The legs were used for confit.  These yellow beans were from the Farmer's Market and I grilled them before freezing.  The sauce for the duck is red wine poached rhubarb that was water bath canned.  I only had to go as far as my freezer and cold room for this satisfying meal tonight.

  3. Now that is the sort of diet I would be quite happy with. Even better when you have it all on hand. Diane

  5. Having duck breast in the freezer is so luxurious, isn't it? The idea you can have it on short notice in the cold of winter is fabulous. Love that you had everything in the freezer, I'm loving rhubarb with duck!
