Where’s the cherry?


Vanilla and strawberry sundae with whipped cream, hot fudge, and walnuts. There was a cherry, but I ate it before I realized I might want it for the photo. I can’t take me anywhere.

From an ice cream social at Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.

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.”
