This is..something I'm surprised Iike....

Duck. Let me explain.... Now, I've spent all my life refusing to eat sweet little quacky Daffy, I mean why would you? Really, he's just so cute! But then a friend invited us for dinner a couple of months ago and she cooked (no prizes for guessing....) duck! And me being me was far too polite to say "Sorry, I don't eat anything that quacks..." and it did look so nice and crispy (cooked a la Delia) that I thought "Well, I'll just eat a bit so as not to offend....". Well quarter of a duck later and there I was licking the plate! (Classy bird, me!) Just think, all of that time I wasted, years, feeling sorry for Daffy when what I should have been doing was spreading him in Plum sauce and wrapping him in a pancake! DOH!
Thanks to Earl and Cookie for this weeks theme, and to Angela as always!

and you know my theory, you gotta eat 'em or they died for nothing!

Probably you were a cat in a past life (hence licking the plate after)!

I usually lick my paws after too... you're not the only classy one!!

I love duck too, tho' I have a special spot in my stomach for chicken.
