Duck Confit and Spiced Blueberry Compote with Butternut & Sage Risotto from the Red Apron


My husband is away on business this week. So my choices were: A. Starve or B. Grab a meal from The Red Apron. And Red Apron to the rescue it was! I planned ahead and picked up a couple of dishes last Friday. Each one has 2 servings so I'll be good for the next 4 days. Tonight I went with the Duck Confit. Serve this sumptuous meal on a candle-lit table with a glass of wine and you'll feel like you're dining at a fancy restaurant. The only thing missing was the conversation aspect. But my 12-year-old-hard-of-hearing dog did all he could to fill those shoes. Total cost for dinner this evening? $11 ($22 for the two servings), and took me 15 minutes to cook. Genius!

Sometimes you got to love taking the easy option! When it is just for yourself it can be a bit of a chore cooking but at least you had the dog!

I'm totally picturing Seb sitting at the table with you.

There was some major drool action.
