What Claire Ate: February 24th, 2015

Tuesday was a pretty excellent food day. I didn’t really have breakfast, but brunch, the first course of which was a slice of cold pizza.

The real meal was this baby kale and lentil salad with rasher bacon, topped with a duck egg.

Very good.

Very good.

I wrote some words, and then left my house around 4:30 to make it to my basic bird butchery class with the Portland Meat Collective. I grabbed a cappuccino at Bushel & Peck before class.

The class was awesome and informative (though I was the slowest when it came to the actual butchery), and we got to eat a lot of duck once the instructional period was over.

Live mousse, pate, and duck prosciutto (the first two were made in class!)

Our practice birds were packaged up for us to take home. and I’m having a hard time decided if I want to try my hand at duck prosciutto or not. (I kind of just want to sear and eat the breasts.)

So many parts!

After class, Redacted and I went to get dessert.

When I got home, Sean was hungry, so he made mac & cheese. I ate some, because I am a monster.
