Confit Duck, Lentils and Cheesecake

29 Jan

Because the lovely Mr S will be in hospital on his birthday next week (getting the best ever birthday present of a new knee) we have celebrated his birthday today with a croissant breakfast (family tradition), cards, presents and phone calls from family and a special dinner this evening. We first met Confit Duck with Lentils in a tiny restaurant in Tournon D’Agenais where we had rented a gite. It has become our go-to meal for celebrations.
The confit duck comes in a tin and just needs reheating and today I added a marmalade sauce and served it with Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Lentils, a Raymond Blanc recipe that I found in this week’s Radio Times.  Delicious!
Our dessert is our favourite, Lime and Ginger Cheesecake, recipe to be found here.

    Happy birthday to Mr S and I hope the operation goes well and is successful! I watched Raymond on TV this morning but have to admit to finding his accent rather difficult to understand.
