Duck Breast with Orange Glaze and Roasted Veggies

Image-1 (6)

I have had this obsession lately with duck!! Whenever I am at a restaurant that seems to be my choice! It all started last summer when I ate at Garde Manger in Montreal- it was the best food I had EVER had! The duck i’m sure was much more high quality than what I bought to make myself but it still turned out good! I like to feel fancy sometimes and make exotic dishes and pretend like I am on Master Chef…. #loser
