And the Giveaway Winner is . . .

Cio and Mike. Chosen via Google's first link for a random (pseudo) number generator. Actually, Lizzie A. won first, but as she's a household member I had to choose again. We were too lazy to put the names in an actual hat.

Cio, aka Rosy Girl, and Mike, aka Cleveland's hottest bartender, are friends, but personally I was pulling for tattgiff and her poem. No offense to everyone else of course. Congrats guys, I think I have your contact info somewhere.

In other news, pictured is a Plum Creek duck breast spiced with star anise, coriander, cumin, salt, and pepper with a cherry wine/duck stock sauce. That side is acorn squash, cooked in a 450 oven with the same spices (minus coriander) and drenched with some Snake Hill Farm maple syrup for the last 5+ min of cooking. Squash via FarmShare.

The 4 lb duck yielded perfect sized breasts, and the legs are getting a quick cure and will be confited tomorrow before being stashed away for cooler weather. Which may not be too far away--outside my breath was showing for the first time this year.
