I have never roasted an whole duck, but I am looking forward to the near 2 cups of rendered fat that I will use in other dishes. In the chili, I will sauté the onion and garlic in a bit of the duck fat. YUM!!!
Also, lets hear some your favorite Thanksgiving food traditions. Post some comments about what you love, or even hate, to eat over the holiday. Mine is my aunt's ricotta-based stuffing made with little bits of sweet italian sausage- so freakin' good. I also enjoy watching Christmas Vacation with my family the night of Thanksgiving while drinking obscene amounts of wine!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
