Coyoty makes a Trader Joe’s Thanksgiving dinner.

Baked Trader Joe’s turkey breast tenderloin with Trader Joe’s Brussels sprouts, Trader Joe’s mashed potatoes, Trader Joe’s gravy, and Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning. The only thing not Trader Joe’s is the Saint Lucifer Spice I added to the turkey.

If I had known it would take a couple of overnights to defrost a couple of tenderloins, I’d have had Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving instead of Saturday.

Yes, The Plate is back. Gush away.

Coyoty eats a Bidwell omelet breakfast.

Bidwell omelet (sausage, mushrooms, red onion, Swiss) with English muffin, fruit cup, grapefruit juice, pineapple, strawberry, and coffee. At Sheffield’s in Cromwell, CT.

Coyoty eats lasagna and waffle rolled cheesecake.

At Nardelli’s Grinder Shoppe in Cromwell, CT.

Baked meat lasagna.

Waffle rolled cheesecake. The waffle cone had a caramel candy shell that was extremely sweet and I couldn’t eat much of it, even though it was very good.
