Ordered roast duck for dinner tonight. The restaurant manager recommended that I order half a duck for 4 people. Wish I hadn't listened to him, when I went to collect my duck - there it was, my wannabe piece de resistance, in a tiny box. Bigger than a matchbox, yes, but smaller than a size 5 shoe box! Oh well, the duck has now been downgraded to hors de oeuvres status. Prawns are lording it tonight. Not that anyone cares, it's the silly drinky season, after all!
