Mussels are a great meal because they are cheap, easy to cook, and can be paired with almost anything. Duck and fennel go perfectly with mussels. We cooked our own duck stock then paired it with white wine and vegetable stock. In went the homemade duck sausage and fennel. This was the perfect way to break in our brand new kitchen.

Fullbellyblog’s newest toy is a motor operated rotisserie attachment for a Weber charcoal grill. We wanted to christen the spit with something new, original and delicious: Duck! The bird marinaded in a mixture of expected Asian ingredients with one unusual addition: Root Beer. The sweet taste and complex flavorings of the soda complimented the Chinese 5 spice powder and molasses.
I think I had been craving wonton soup for at least week before making this. I wanted good wonton soup, not the bland crap you get at a Chinese restaurant. Danny and I came up with the idea of making duck wonton soup. This is totally different than what they serve in China but who cares. It was awesome! We made our broth from duck stock and the wontons are filled with duck. We used our pressure cooker to speed up the process of making duck stock. The results? DELICIOUS.
