Shrimp Bisque with Scallop

I took time this morning since it was cold, and made shrimp bisque.  I didn't have any Remy or Hennessy,
so I opted to buy E & J Brandy to flambe' the prawns.
I also threw in some Longostein Tails I found at Trader Joe's it added to the flavor and topped off with a nice
seared Scallop.
An hour and a half later voila' this was quite yummy.  The baguette (La Brea) I prefer Il Fornaio but Podesto's was out.

Brown Rice Duck Congee

When I really didn't feel good last week, I had the flu and I normally don't eat congee only when I am really sick.  So here it is, Brown Rice Congee with Roast Duck from the Chinese Deli here.
1/2  cup (dry)Brown Rice Medley (It's my mix, Brown Jasmine, Wild Rice, Gen Mai Brown and a little Jasmine) I rinse the rice first then add:
Lots of stock, garlic, onion and the duck shredded , salt and white pepper then simmer away for an hour.

Noodle Soup with Zucchini and Mushroom with Shredded Duck

This was one of those days the other day, needed comfort I was a tad under the weather.
Noodle soup with shredded duck, zucchini and mushrooms. The crab cakes were from Selland's Market/Cafe near the office.  Those were yummy.

I have out of the loop for a bit.  Mom in law was gravely ill, mom lost her battle to breast cancer after being in remission on 9/22 and my father passed away from a heart attack on 10/3.  They will be deeply missed.
Things are so going to be different we know that .  It's been difficult for both families.

I cooked 10 days straight at one point and forget to take pictures of everything.  I guess family was so much more important.

I came down with a cold the other dayand feeling quite drained.

So I cooked today I cooked white corn they looked good we'll have to see how sweet they actually are.

I made a Butter Mochi Cake with Huckleberries fresh ones that I got at the Ferry Bldg last week.  Since I have this cold, I also made some cream of Mushroom and Chicken Soup with Orzo.  I saute'd the mushrooms separately in Sweet Marsala and butter and incorporated into the soup later.
