Mother's little Ducker... a story about decanting the Shafer

duck shaped antique carafe

We found this decanter while browsing antiques in Gruene last weekend. #2 son has been urging me to use it. He keeps asking me "Don't you want to drink some wine?".  Like that's what I need, a little voice urging me to drink more wine...  We finally gave in and filled it with some Shafer One Point Five.

He announced "I will be the DUCKER!". I wasn't sure what he was talking about. He explained that the decanter resembled a duck, "The DUCKER is the person that pours the duck".

We used the salt plate for Porcini dusted Sea Scallops and Shiitake mushrooms.
