Sorry I had to cut it kind of short tonight but my DH insisted on using the laptop. I still have more updates from butiflfeet, Lauren, Niki, and glasslipper to share with you plus a surprise update from Disneyland. I'll try and get a few of these posted in the morning before I go to work and then the rest tomorrow night. So check back tomorrow for lots more great updates!

Barb, I'm a local to DL and we go at least twice a month. I can take requests! In fact, we just went tonight and ate at Carnation Cafe. Let me know if there's any place anyone is looking for.

Ask and you shall receive, Vicki!



Because for our next update we are taking a detour west to Disneyland, where one of our distinguished alumni reporters is currently visiting and surprised me with this text yesterday...



"Hi Barb! I'm hanging out in DL for a few days. Not sure if you want pics or not?"



To which I of course replied, "Sure Paula! How fun!"




And so I'm very happy to share with you Paula's (smile4stamps) first update from...


DISNEYLAND



Paula said, "All right...Here was my super fattening snack with a side of healthy..."






From the Golden Horseshoe Review: Monte Cristo Bites with apple slices





"And ironically I went across to California Adventure to get a drink, only to discover they have the same cocktail menu as WDW so I got a Pimm's Punch to make it feel like I was back at the Wilderness Lodge, where I had one with my hubby sitting next to me."






Pimm's Punch - Pimm's No. 1 Liqueur, Hendrick's Gin, Odwalla Lemonade, and Wild Strawberry

Then we will be "Yachting" back to Disney World and dock at the "Club" for dinner with butiflfeet at...


Yachtsman Steakhouse


butiflfeet began her update with something that I love...









MENU PICS!!!



















butiflfeet said, "It was just 3 of us at dinner last night. My mom tries to eat a vegan diet so a steakhouse was not on her list of must-do's this trip. DH and I had the Caesar salad and my sister had the wedge salad.
Both were nicely presented and very flavorful."







Caesar Salad with Crisp Romaine, Parmesan Cheese, Coppa Secco, and Focaccia Croutons







Steakhouse "Wedge" - Iceberg Lettuce, Blue Cheese, Hazelnuts, Tomatoes, and Herbs





"For our mains, both DSis and I had the hanger steak but I subbed the side for mashed potatoes.
We both loved this! Very flavorful and just as tender as any filet I've had."






Beef Hanger Steak with Herb Butter
served with Truffle Fries with aioli and Garden Salad








Beef Hanger Steak with Herb Butter
served with Mashed Potatoes (subbed for the usual sides, shown above)





"DH had the NY strip steak. His was a touch overdone but he ate all of it so it had to have been good."





12-oz. Prime New York Strip Steak with Peppercorn-Brandy Sauce
served with Gruyere Potato Gratin






"We also split a side of creamed spinach. This was a bit salty for my taste but overall we all liked it."




Creamed Spinach with Parmigiano-Reggiano and Gruyere Cheeses

I received three great updates from Lauren (Giselle22) last night. Two of them are longer dinner updates from Jiko and Restaurant Marakesh (with lots of great pics ) so I will save those for this evening in order to do them justice.
I also have in the queue for tonight a great update from Niki Adiokno of their dinner last night at Kimonos...and this time her camera was working!


But for now, I will leave you with Lauren's snack update from France's new bakery...



Les Halles






Lauren said, "We went back to Les Halles later in the afternoon to try some pastries! My brothers, mom, and I shared a napoleon, strawberry tart, and chocolate tart. The napoleon is fairly thick pastry cream with a thin layer of puff pastry on top and bottom. It was just the right amount of sweet. The strawberry tart is a vanilla cream, which just tasted sort of sweet, like whipped cream, with big strawberries in a light syrup on top. The chocolate tart has a layer of caramel custard with chocolate mousse on top. As you can see from the second picture, we loved them all! These were fantastic pastries, and we already want to go back and try more!"

Note from jabead: It looks to me like they've changed my beloved Napoleon!!!
This one looks like the generic one they have at other WDW bakeries.

Here is the Napoleon I know and love...

I did something similar, well maybe more food obsessed! We made a trip to Mall of America in part because I wanted to eat at Pardon my French because I was craving the flat bread and pastry because of all the Le Chefs Reviews ....... And I make my husband stop at a gourmet cupcake bakery on his way home about twice a month because its hard not to crave them when looking at all the great ones on here! Oh we'll 7 more days and I will have a real Disney Cupcake or four!

They did change the Napoleon! I noticed that earlier. Maybe it's better than the others ones! It looks a little better.

Just received a text from Niki Andiokno with a correction to the website address which includes discounts coupons for restaurants such as Il Mulino, Kimonos, Bluezoo, and Shula's at the Swan & Dolphin Resort.

Here is the correct address: orlandoconventionaid.com


I just checked out the website and it has discount coupons for several Orlando area restaurants. The ones for the four restaurants listed above are all for a 20% discount and are good thru 4-30-13.



Thanks again Niki for the great tip!
