Kumquat Root Stew
OK. So, somewhere along the line I decided the fruity things were kumquats. And that the dish in general was deserving of another web page.
Above are the raw root vegetables. They're just random stuff from Whole Foods. So, if you can recognize what they are, please let me know. I'd love to make this exact same dish again. Oh, and that white gloop is duck grease.
Here's a picture of the root vegetables and kumquats boiling away. First I cooked the duck stuffed with kumquats (per previous page). Then the root vegetables were browned. And then a bunch of water and duck stock was added.
It's been a few weeks, but I believe the first night, we ate the root vegetables straight as the main course.
Here's the duck again. This is leftovers.
And here's another one of those carefully planned meals that I'm famous for: all leftovers, the lot of it.
The sauce was great on eggs. The rest of the pictures on the page feature eggs. Here they are scrambled. That white stuff is spretzel from DJ's Bistro (great place).
Scrambled again, this time with a Hawaiian rolls and jelly.
Along with some kind of hard cheese (probably gouda).
And here's the same thing, more or less, with fried eggs (over hard) with breaded pork (forget what that stuff is called), also from DJ's Bistro. Great place, DJ's (or something like that). It's in Concord, CA sort of (kind of) across the street from the Park and Shop.

Anyhow, if you like eggs,
maybe you'd be interested in
the Dark Necromancer Insidious's
The Twelth Century
It features a Dragon's Egg,
which is close enough for me.
