Dessert:

Summer berry shortcake

Summer berry shortcake. Apparently they’re good judges of how much their guests can eat. The shortcake was tiny and I would have wished it were bigger if I had any room left.

Clam chowder

Clam chowder with chives and bacon. Extremely good.

Coffee

Coyoty eats Peruvian shrimp and ice cream.

At Cora Cora Restaurant in West Hartford, CT.

Chicharron de Colas de Camaron with fries

Chicharron de Colas de Camaron with fries. “Juicy shrimp tails seasoned with garlic, salt, pepper, egged, floured then fried. Served with house sauce, fried cassava or fresh fries and red onion salad.” I finally get a salad with enough onions in it! It had a cilantro dressing on it, which was perfect.

Lucuma ice cream

Lucuma ice cream. “Peruvian ice cream made with lucuma fruit.” Lucuma is an Andean fruit that looks like a cross of a peach and an avocado. The ice cream tasted like a cross of cherry, peach, and cantaloupe. It came with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, caramel, cherry, cookie stick, and mint garnish.

Blue margarita, coffee, water, and cancha

Blue margarita, coffee, water, and cancha. Cancha is fried Peruvian corn with a sauce put out on tables, like bar food.

Corner Seeds

Corner Seeds

They’re seeds… that corn… They make corn… They’re corners… That works, right?

I used the flash on this one to enhance the contours of the dish and to bring out the satin and shine of the kernels. I found that flashing at 50% zoom brings out the best contrasts in macro photos, at least for me with the Canon G16.

For #FlickrFriday’s “Corner” and Macro Mondays’ “Seeds” challenges.

You can’t make a cornier pun than this one. But I can, of corn.

Coyoty eats Easter dinner.

Easter with family and friends.


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


Basket of biscuits and crescent rolls.


Hugging the Bandit.


Leeloo MultiPass. Not her real name, but that’s what she’s called.


Glazed spiral ham.


Spatchcock. Whole chicken split down the breast, spread, and broiled.


Sleeping Bandit.

Coyoty eats shepherd’s pie with Irish brown bread.

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


“A casserole of ground beef, onions, carrots, peas and corn topped with whipped potatoes. Served with brown bread.”

When I asked for butter, they brought me what I’d call “chunky” garlic butter: melted butter with crushed garlic chunks. The brown bread dunked in it was too good to describe. The whipped potatoes had pieces of corned beef and chives.


Deep dish crème brûlée with rich chocolate at the bottom and a sliced strawberry on top. “This creamy custard explosion tantalizes the taste buds with our own take on a French classic dessert. With a bottom line of chocolate ganache, this after dinner experience is truly delicious.”
