Leftover Duck & Spinach Salad

I kind of love Sunday, as they’re quite relaxing, this is probably the only day of the week that I stay at home (most of the time). Well, I still have to do a bit of cooking and cleaning but that’s ok. I love cooking and as far as the cleaning is concerned, I aim to finish with it early in the morning so I can get the rest of the day off. πŸ™‚ Yes, early in the morning because we’re usually up by 7.30 thanks to our beautiful daughter who is always so excited for the weekend. Seriously, during the week I can barely wake her up at 8 for nursery. πŸ™‚ But it’s all good.

We usually have an early Sunday supper, a bath for the kids and then a movie night for mummy and daddy. πŸ™‚ This is what we’re looking forward on Sundays. It may sound boring (I’m sure I’d thought that’s the most boring thing in the world before the kids) but this is what we love to do, peacefully and quietly! πŸ™‚ Anyone with me? πŸ™‚

Leftover Duck & Spinach Salad

Now, I know, not all of you may have any leftover duck at the moment. πŸ™‚ You can simply save the recipe for later on, when you do, or get some cooked duck breast or other pieces you’d like (they sell it in most of the shops). Or even you can use leftovers from your Sunday roast, anything you’d like really. πŸ™‚

This salad would make a lovely lunch too. Let’s say you use your Sunday Roast leftovers. Make this beautiful salad and toss it in a food container in the fridge. Use it as your Monday lunch – great and healthy start of the week. πŸ™‚ Or even save it for your dinner. All up to you really. Just be aware, don’t keep it more than a day or two as the spinach Β won’t be that fresh and even may go off.

Here’s what you need to make this delicious leftover salad.

Shredded Goose & Shrimp Sandwich

Happy Wednesday guys! The recipe of the day is Shredded Goose & Shrimp Sandwich!

Shredded Goose & Shrimp Sandwich

Let me tell you, these sandwiches are absolutely amazing, not really on the healthy side, but definitely worth every single bite. They’re in my top 10 comfort food list. I just love sandwiches like these – loaded with lots of cheese, fresh and crunchy salad, shrimp and tasty goose!

I would’ve probably used the goose only but then I found some shrimp hidden in my fridge and really felt like having shrimp. So I decided to combine goose and shrimp in this succulent sandwich. What a great idea it was! πŸ™‚ I buttered the bread and made it nice and crunchy. All the ingredients though are quite filling so a half of these was more than enough for me. Well, I saved my other half for the next day. πŸ™‚ And of course I ate these beauties with lots of hot sauce. For some reason, I always use hot sauce on shrimp and meat. It jus goes perfect – spicy and simply delicious!

Shredded Goose & Shrimp Sandwich

I rarely make roasted goose but it’s definitely one of my favourite food to roast. πŸ™‚ I mean, it’s so juicy and scrumptious and just irresistible. I used lots and lots of spices and some clementines that I used to stuff it and it turned so aromatic and bursting with flavour. The meat is soft and quite fatty, but that makes it super yummy. Oh, and a quick tip – save the goose fat! It makes wonders when added in your recipes. Try some roast pots with goose fat and you’ll know what I mean.

My point was, I actually used leftovers from the goose I had made. I also use these in pasta, wraps and salads. Goose is absolutely lovely! πŸ™‚

Well, after that feast, you’ll probably need a good workout but it is all worth it! And I’d like to think this way – I’m actually burning calories while cooking so a delicious meal is well deserved. πŸ™‚ Especially after a long and exhausting week! So why not make these like your perfect weekend treat! We all deserve it. πŸ™‚ After all, you need some energy for the busy week ahead. πŸ™‚
