Florida eats...Gator!

Yup, you read that right. Gator. As in alligator. Those adorable creatures that I was feeding and holding and petting yesterday at Gatorland I was eating tonight for dinner. It was wrong to eat them in the park, but not in the hotel! Admittedly, alligator is not something I'd like to eat every day. It was a bit tough. It was more of a I-have-to-try-it sort of thing.

Apparently, alligator is quite healthy, as meats go. Roughly 110 calories in 4 ounces, low in saturated fat, high in protein, and the tail tastes like chicken! They say that the dark meat tastes more like pork or frogs' legs. As if I know what freakin' frogs' legs taste like! That's just absurd!

On a non-food related is my mom's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Mom!!!!! If you know my mom, wish her a happy birthday will you? She's celebrating with a new Arizona Cardinals jacket.


some in-room yogurt, granola and fruit. Gotta love the mini-fridge!
