With a pile of carrots and parsnips in the house stew was on the menu. Passion fruit ice cream too, but that will come another day. The Monster and I set about peeling veg while Hubby tried to rest on the couch. Oh, did I mention that all four of us have colds right now? So we get all our veg peeled and chopped and I set to browning the beef. After a quick deglaze of the pan with orange juice (my favourite thing to use when making stew) I turned around to grab all my veg. As you can see from the above photo I had cause to pause. We have a 'no hands on the cutting board' rule in the house, but apparently that doesn't apply to rubber duckies.
There are so many reasons to cook with your kids, giggles notwithstanding.
oh dear -- that really made me laugh.
Thanks for the chuckle, I enjoyed that immensely!
Am fighting off a cold of my own ... and a bit of laughter is indeed good medicine. :)
Here's hoping you'll all be on the mend soon!
Made it, and love the picture of the ducky and veggies...you see I have 3 kids, and 2 of those are twins, so you can imagine what I found about anywhere and every where :)

I love a good braised duck but this one looks a tad on the tough side.
Get better; summer is coming.
PS Thanks for including the link, that was cool.
