Eggnog Overnight Oats

A convenient breakfast for the holidays when you've got the eggnog and you don't want to make breakfast tomorrow.

Mix up 1/3 cup rolled or old-fashioned oats, some fruit or nuts (I used slivered almonds, pecans, and coconut), a pinch of salt, 1/4 cup eggnog, and 1/3 cup milk, sprinkle cinnamon on top, and let it sit in the fridge overnight. The next morning all the liquid will be absorbed and the oats will be soft and sweet from the eggnog, so no sugar needs to be added.

If you don't have eggnog, you can use other dairy such as milk, kefir, or yogurt. You can also mix in wheat germ, chia seeds, and other healthy fillers.

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
Classic, with ketchup, relish, onions, and mustard.

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.

April 14th, 2016

At Wood -n- Tap in Rocky Hill, CT.

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!
