Muskrat Meal

Charlie Hyde, past president of the Algonquin Club of Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, displays his plate of food -- which includes muskrat meat -- while moving through the buffet line at the annual Muskrat Dinner at the Monroe Boat Club in Monroe. Hyde and his fellow history buffs chatted about local lore and heard from a speaker about the War of 1812, but the star of the show was the sherry-soaked rodent, boiled to perfection and plated.
