Cajun-spiced catfish sandwiches with
roasted broccoli and remoulade sauce.
Obviously, I can't follow directions because I put the romaine on
the side instead of ON the sandwich as directed.

OMG these were so very good. Yeeeeesssss.
I can't believe I put the romaine on the side like that.

"Sugarcane is native to New Guinea, where fresh
stalks are often chewed for a sweet, juicy treat."
We did that when I was a kid! (Although, not in New Guinea :)
There is nothing like fresh sugarcane stalks. Better than candy!

The finger lime caviar!
These had such an interesting and different taste than
a regular lime. Terrific!

Black bean and kale enchiladas with cheddar cheese.
To be honest this was one of my least favorites. I'd give
it a 3 out of 5 just due to the fact that it was FAR too
acidic. It needed something to offset that.
