Coyoty eats a camel.

I was assured this was actual camel meat. It didn't taste much different from a supermarket beef patty.

Yeah, I put ketchup, mustard, and relish on it.

Cajun Asian chicken sandwich
The special of the day was Cajun chicken. I asked them to make me a Cajun chicken sandwich. They have an Asian chicken wrap on the regular menu. They thought I said Asian chicken sandwich. So I ended up with a Cajun Asian chicken sandwich.

Burger King Classic Grilled Hot Dog

Burger King Chili Cheese Grilled Hot Dog
Chili cheese.

Of course, I regret going to a fast food restaurant again. I'm usually disappointed. In this case, it's clear that Burger King is skimping on the food and quality. I've tasted better boiled hot dogs, and I doubt the grill marks are authentic. They don't give you a full hot dog, either. They cut a wedge out of each dog, not just slicing it for cooking reasons or holding the meager toppings. The dogs look skinnier than they should, and are overwhelmed by the buns. Burger King should be called Hot Dog Pauper.

Half-rack baby back ribs
With sweet potato fries and cole slaw. I was told they would be fall-off-the-bone and I could eat them with knife and fork. I didn't get to pick them up because the bones slipped right out, and I didn't need a knife. I probably could have eaten them with a spoon. Good ribs.

I'm late in posting this but only because I forgot about the photo. I was in the hospital during Easter Sunday and my mom brought Easter dinner to me!

Menu:
Deviled eggs
Homemade mashed potatoes
Asparagus
Cranberry sauce

And the pièce de résistance...



Cornish hens stuffed with rosemary, thyme, and citrus fruits (lime, lemon, grapefruit, and orange)

They were fantastic! She had them in a brine overnight and then crusted the outside with salt, pepper, and olive oil. They were tender and juicy and AMAZING!
Easter with family and friends.

Glazed spiral ham, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, and biscuit.

Roasted blackened salmon and pearl onions
This is one of the tastiest things I've cooked. Wild Alaskan sockeye salmon filet, frozen pearl onions, and truffle oil from Trader Joe's, with Chef Prudhomme's blackened redfish seasoning.

I laid the filet skin-down on a large foil sheet, drizzled it with truffle oil, covered it with the seasoning, covered it with onions, covered the onions with the seasoning, sealed the foil, and roasted it for 15 minutes at 500 degrees F.

From the first onion, it was heaven. The onions picked up the flavor of the salmon, and vice-versa, in a good way. It would have been great without the seasoning, but the seasoning made it greater. I think the truffle oil made it the greatest. The fish was moist, flaky, and perfectly cooked. I'm making it again tomorrow.

Groundhog Day
A hybrid of Begonia aconitifolia and Begonia coccinea, with juicy edible flowers that taste sweet and tart. Should make an interesting salad.
