God Bless America, it's dinner at Chef's! cont'd

Our lovely server-





She was Parisienne, so sweet. Of course, because I was wearing my Bday button (to which my kids constantly said, It's not your BIRTHDAY!!!!!), a group of 7 or so handsome, handsome hot waiters (and the very pretty Parisienne) surrounded me and sang Happy Birthday when they brought me ice cream. Here are all the photos Pods took.

I know! So, sorry, tracy- no hot waiters for YOU!



At this point, I said, "Wasn't that nice...all of them singing?" and Pods said to Tyler, "Hey! I know what singing YOU could do! I'll pay you $50 to stand on your chair right now and sing God Bless America!"



I am sure you are aware, but in case you are not, America and France have a....diverse relationship. It's complicated. (Of course, I am not one of these people- largely due to the fact that my favorite French words are Vouvray, Gran Marnier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Champagne, Tomme de Levezou & Epoisses (which is cheese, but still).....I think you see my point). But there ARE those who hate the French- which is ridiculous, because how can you actually hate a whole country of people you've never even met???? We know a guy named Fred who refuses all French things- even the wine! So we texted Fred...and he said he would up the $$ to $500 if Tyler stood on his chair and sang. Actually, Fred's daughter said she would come down to Orlando and sing for free!

Sooo.....aren't we all glad that my son Tyler has integrity...and prefers to eat crepes for free. Crepe a la pomme et cannelle, glace vanille, caramel jus de pommes - Crepe filled with cinnamon, apple, vanilla ice cream and apple caramel sauce-



Timmy loved the chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream our VERY NICE, VERY FRENCH server brought for him-



Dinner was very nice (especially the singing part...and the NOT singing part) and I would definitely go back- and I would hope Ratatouille would stop by next time, too. I was really looking forward to meeting that little chef!

Oh- and PS- in case you are wondering, Pods was just making a joke. He is ok with the French, too.

Up next- exactly how much can you do in 2 hours? A LOT...if you walk very, VERY fast!

I thought it was from oybolshoi's review from 2009, but she then mentioned in the post when she visits the ditch for the first time that it was TDC Nala's invention. And I knew that I had read about it in a dining review... So it was actually pretty easy to find.
It doesn't sound that easy to me, I think you must be a very good detective...you must be GREAT at Kim Possible Adventures!!

Food looked yummy! Im with Tyler I love Crepes, but I would have SOOO taken Fred up on his bet! not for the money for the principal... a challange is a challange!

And tell the boys the only thing you need to know in any language is the following 3 things to get by,
Food

Bathroom

Hi Ellen! So fun talking with you this morning! I'm sure the boys were feeling so grown up to be off on their own adventure! And look how responsible they were!
Now your adventure at the Ditch looks way more fun! I do love a nice smooth tequila! Now I'm kicking myself for not bringing home some tequila from Cozumel. Just wasn't in the mood to shop for it.

We ate at Chefs in 2007 - surprised to walk in for an early dinner with DBIL and DN. We loved it! Your server was a cutie - did the boys get a little tongue tied with her around? My youngest would have done something obnoxious at that age. What? Tyler didn't sing for $500? Fred must know him pretty well!

Sounds like a great meal! I still can't see myself at Chefs anytime soon, though, it just seems weired for me to pay WDW prices for French food which I can easily get here as well. I rather go and get the skillet at WCC which is something that is not available here...

How sad that a bad teacher spoiled French for Tyler! Learning a new language the most important thing is to not feel selfconscious when you speak it. I hope he will gain more confidence again with a new teacher!

But what you said about weired rules on how to pronounce things - you thing English is any better? There you have many words that don't follow any rules of pronounciation and you just never know how wether not suddenly a letter might be silent or which sound a vowel really stands for...

I absolutely agree with your sentiment that it makes no sense to hate a whole nation! And considering that there once was a great friendship between the US and France, they even gave you the Statue of Liberty! Germany and France used to have a relationship which was supposed to be a "hereditary enmity" and which was the cause for many wars in Europe! After 1945 both sides worked really hard to change that, they started twinning towns, organizing exchanges between schools and stuff like that. Today France and Germany are co-operating on many levels and within the European Union these two countries have been the motor for more integration.

At first I was wondering wether you were proposing to sing "Save the Queen"... But then I realized that you were going to sing God Bless America.

Oui Oui. That is my french, even though it sounds like potty humor.....

The only time I've eaten at Le Chefs it was "okay" at best, so we haven't been back. I was so very disappointed at the time because the desserts were not freshly made. They were so very prepackaged and prepared and it was just sooooo sad cause that's what we were looking forward to! And then we had the filet, which quite frankly I can get anywhere (shame on me for ordering so boring, right?). Although Jeff did enjoy the scenery with our server..... Me? Bring on the waiters in Tutto!!!!! May, right?

Had to play catch up again!

Hey, we had that same tart at Le Chefs too! And I am glad the rest of your meal went better than ours, because we just didn't enjoy it very much.

It's a shame your son didn't sing "God Bless America!". I would have loved to see the look on some of those Frenchie faces!
