Gluttony . . . Pure Gluttony. 14 nights food reviews from two little piggies!LAST DAY

Hi there!!

Well we are back from 14 nights at Port Orleans French Quarter. Am thoroughly depressed that its over, but had the best vacation EVER, in no small part thanks to all the tips on these boards!! So as way of thanks I thought I would crack on with ALL my food reviews and hopefully can help some other people with their food choices!

As you can tell from the title we are pigs!!! We eat pretty healthily at home, so on vacation and at Christmas we go all out, no guilt and no worrying about the scales. The only worry is whether we have the room to eat everything we want to. We managed that pretty well as you will see! DH has weighed himself since we got home yesterday and has put on 14 pounds!!! I haven’t the courage to weigh myself until I am re-acquainted with the treadmill!!!! Am currently cooking up a veg soup for lunch, to remind my body what fresh food resembles.!

The cast . . . me, 30 years old, been mad about Disney since my first visit almost 20 years ago. Love Eeyore and Belle, but this vacation also found myself with a strange fondness for both Tinkerbell and Donald Duck! Adore food, especially ribs, wings and chocolate, more a quantity than quality kind of girl!!!

DH (known as TG), 29 years old, never considered Disney until I dragged him there for our first magical vacation together in 2003, now loves it as much as me. Also loves Eeyore, and also will pick food quantity over quality anytime (the two piggies are well suited)! Loves chicken and burgers. We got married at the Disney Wedding Pavillion in 2006 so has committed himself to a life full of Disney forever. Poor fool!

My mum calls us the “garlic twins” because we eat it so much. We love it, but apparently we don’t always smell so good!!!!!! We don’t like seafood so no reviews of that coming up!

We don’t do the DDP as we like to eat off site a few times. I have listed below all the places we ate at (quite a lot!). I know most people do DDP so I will just give brief reviews of the off-site places in case anyone is interested!
