Double Duck?

Oakland, California, September 18, 2011—
LUNCH TODAY ON THE patio at home with a friend visiting from Japan:
Pork sausage with thyme and rosemary 
Frittata with zucchini and parmagiano
Sliced tomatoes
DINNER AT AN OLD favorite restaurant we've been neglecting for years, celebrating its 36th birthday. It's well known for its duck dinners, but friends with whom we were eating had brought a bottle of Burgundy, so after a salad of endive and sliced tomatoes I had a nice beefsteak with Bearnaise sauce, pommes Anna on the side, and a thick rich chocolate pot de crème for dessert. Made with duck eggs, so I wound up in the clear after all.
