LOL. Not only do I have a calendar for all of our dining reservations, but this year I am going to make a list of all the things I want to eat. I have never had a churro (I know gasp right!!??) for this year. I get very excited!!!
We are going to have lunch at Carnation Cafe so I can have the pickles. LOL. I do not like the veggie burger option, but I LOVE the pickles. DH will more than likely have a regular burger, I will have pickles and a salad (yup..I know what I want).

Hi All - Figment and I just got back from a trip to DLR and it was our first time at Carthay Circle Theater. I have to say, we really liked it! (So much so that we made an impromptu reservation for lunch after having dinner there!) Here are some of our photos from Carthay Circle.

At both dinner and lunch we had the Carthay House Biscuits. We were a little worried about the jalapenos in them, but decided to try them anyway. They were so good! Nothing like a biscuit; they were more like a fritter. They had a nice crispy outer coating and then a soft inner filling.


Figment also tried the Signature Fire Cracker Duck Wings. The meat was nice and moist, but the sauce was so spicy! The server warned us, so we knew. The spicy-food lover in group ate most of them because they were just to hot for the milder-food eaters in the group.


For dinner, Figment tried the Cavatelli Pasta with Tuscan-style Braised Lamb (top), Grilled Quail (middle), and Bacon-wrapped Shrimp (bottom). All three entrees were very good. The lamb was tender and had a nice rich flavor. The quails were very tender (as well). The shrimp were tasty, but the sauce was kind of sweet.




At lunch, Figment tried the Strawberry-Lemon Roasted Organic Chicken Salad (top) and Grilled Angus Flank Steak Cobb Salad (bottom). The chicken salad was really good. It was light and the dressing, despite having buttermilk, wasn't anything like a ranch dressing. The Cobb salad was heavier, but still good. It isn't like the Cobb salad from HBD, but it was still really yummy.



The inside the restaurant was really pretty with lots of attention to detail. The servers encourage you to look around after you've finished.

Thanks!

Okay - a little late, but here are the pictures from Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen Brunch.

As usually, Figment started with the Bourbon Street Sampler. Everything was really good, but his favorites were the calamari and deep fried artichoke hearts.


For his entrees, he tried the Creole Caesar Salad with Crawfish Tails (top), BBQ Shrimp & Grits (middle), and Cochon De Lait & Eggs Sardou (bottom). As always everything tasted really good. He got to listen to jazz music while he ate!




As this was Figment's first trip to Disneyland since Carsland opened, he had to try out the food there. He had to have "Starbucks" one morning and try some of the offerings at Flo's V8 Cafe.

The Chicken Tamale Breakfast - it was kind of spicy, but still pretty good.


He also had the American Breakfast. Pretty standard breakfast food.


His favorite was the Starbucks mocha and seasonal cupcake.


Later in the day, he wandered over to the Cozy Cone Motel and tried the pretzel bites (yum!) and Red's Apple Freeze. The pretzel bites (with cheese dipping sauce) were really good. The apple freeze...well...it tasted like frozen apple juice, which was okay, but he was hoping for something more like the green apple slushie over at Mad T Party (he had another wiggly yard on this trip, but was so excited, he forgot to take a picture ).


Then, later, he went back to the Cozy Cone Motel and tried the churro bites and got his souvie cone cup! (He would have gotten the souvie cup earlier, but they ran out during the middle of the afternoon and had to wait for a re-stocking!). It looked like a lot of soda, but it's 32 oz, which is the same size as the regular large soda! The churro bites and chocolate dipping sauce were okay, but Figment likes the normal length churro better for some reason.


Overall, Figment liked the new food places on this trip (Carthay Circle, Carsland) and the old favorites (Ralph Brennan's) were still as good as he remembered. He can't wait to go back to DLR (hopefully during the holiday season)!
