Happy Halloween and Sunday Funday!

Mike and I had a pumpkin carving shindig this past weekend with friends and boy was it a great time!

We had pumpkin aranchinis, pumpkin fries, pumpkin bruschetta with homemade bread, pumpkin oreo cheesecake and of course baked pumpkin seeds. Here is what was in each dish (all appropriately seasoned):

Duck Dynasty ain't got nothin' on this!

Hello duck breast!

Cooked breast side down on medium heat in a nice glob of duck fat. Mike said scoring it first helps with the cooking process. Accompanying this fine piece of meat are herb marinated grilled vegetables (purple & green cauliflower, corn, potatoes). Everything on the plate is home grown goodness. Thanks to my grandparents for the plethora of potatoes we now have to cook with!
