Nice!!!!! Oh, and Pig Stomach is not so bad. Its a Pennsylvania Dutch thing, we stuff the stomach with cut up smoked and fresh sausage, diced potatoes, onions, parsley, salt and pepper and bake it in the oven. Then we heat butter in a cast iron pan and brown it and then pour milk in the pan and have that as a type of gravy. You don't have to eat the stomach but it is yummy. Other people have stuffed it with other things, but this is how my Mom made it.

Isn't this what is otherwise known as Scrapple?

Too funny.

I love it as well. Though unless we have the relativeséfriends along I must do it alone. Not quite as fun that way but still a thrill after all these years.

Oh and a princess as a rebel spy - I didn't catch it was as in your princess at first - and got all excited that Disney actually had redid the princesses just for me. Oh well - one can dream.

I just lost a post TWICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But Ièm OMG - now the frigginè francophone keyboard is back. Accent a ksdfjlasdjfl;asdkfjls. Which means no question marks and no apostrophes. Swearing in french.

I must laugh - I bet my response to your lessons was going to get me thrown off the disboards. I bet. And God saved me because he loves me and has nothing better to do. Insert HUGE WINK everyone.

I will return at some point.

So enjoying. Really.

I thought they used to have Fast passes restart at the beginning of EMH but it was not case. Maybe they never did it and I was just imagining things.
?
No you're not imagining. They did and it drives me insane since I ADORE WDW at night.

on the purple. Loved it.

Another ride I sometimes am forced to do on my own. My first time this guy was in pure glee. OMG - I just caught that and I'm keeping it in. Anyway I was trying to say he was in pure glee to taunt the freshie with his knowledge. .

I forgot to say thank you. Thank you.

I am. And I was so unsure how I would feel. Not about downtown - I ADORE it. Just about a new area. I used to live in PRIME downtown. (By complete accident - I just bought in years before anyone else could catch on that drugs, hostels and prostitutes a few blocks up could not take away the beauty. LOCATION. 'LOCATION. LOCATION. )

So I was unsure because I wanted to be back in my old one (ten years). This one is preplanned (blech) and spaced out. I love conjestion.

But it is great and I barely made it back into the downtown market. So Ièm - OMG this keyboard is going to steal my shaky sanity - grateful.

Itès young. LIKE YOUNG YOUNG. Sunday mornings are as interesting as Saturday nights. All these young men out walking so early. I have no idea where theyève been all night.

Parties are like fifty on one balcony. Itès hysterical. Great energy youth brings. Even noise is okay - reminds me of university days.

I have no idea why I just wrote a synopsis of my move.

If you heard - and I could actually post it here - what I screamed at your Mr. Mourning once you would see that Ièm far from nice. and that trait shows in your trash talk.You know da*n well that I wasnèt even trying to trash talk. Lesson number 1: Throw the words of you antagonist or foibles of opposing team members back in their face. You have plenty of material to work with in Labron and Bosh. Especially Bosh boy. Lebron is not as much fun. Example: “So how is Labron doing on the six championships he guaranteed?” This is a minor taunt but we must walk before we run.Ièm trying so hard to work through this keyboard situation AND not bite with you so that I may enjoy these boards for years to come smarta$$.. Lesson number 2: Never completely compliment an opposing player. Example: Wade is too good a person and player to be stuck with these bozos. Again tame but I don’t want to give you too much to digest at one time.Choose your very favourite @%@% word and digest it for me. Lesson number 3: Use humor that is biting.Off topic - but isnèt our spelling so much more exquisite - humour me. This will be your homework assignment. There is a warning about using humor. It cannot be mean spirited unless you know the target can take it or you don’t care.

Excuse me while I paddle to the Rhineland and see how Dirk is doing since I called him Fed Ex MVP and Ich bin loserhausen for years on end. Now they suck because Cuban caught on and brought a psychologist to team Mavs and Dirk got his an actual MVP while he was still wearing a playoff uniform.

Your second assignment is to watch the scene in Monty Python’s The Holy Grail where Arthur is storming the French Castle. Yeah what fun. Now youère making sense. Though Ièm not sure if Iève actually seen it sober. My roommate in university had it on an ongoing movie loop after weekend pub nights. He loved it. Priceless flim. This is classic and expert taunting. Don’t worry if you can’t be as good as that your first time out. It takes practice to reach that level. Because Iève never taunted you, ehÉ


.
The disboards is going to irritate me and force me to say something. Imagine it for me. Ièm much too tired.

Loved the picture, comment and the link.

As for your dive - fantastic. It must feel like pure freedom. In general I mean - not just with your recovery. Or maybe I should actually ask what a dive feels like instead of imagining for myself.

I am all caught up but donèt have it in me to deal with losing posts or this da*n keyboard for one more second. And Iève inadvertently spent hours on posting on this TR today. And itès heaven outside. We have been blessed with days and days and days of gorgeous weather.

The Victoria and Albert post was one of my favourite posts of all your TRs. But then again I love food.

Oh hey neighbor! I love PA Dutch cooking, so yummy! I grew up in the Upper Perkiomen Valley and now live in Doylestown, so we're not that far from each other! I have to say my very favorite thing is the Shoefly pie, I just love that! That's Dutch right? I find the Dutch pastries and desserts just yummy!

Wow! You know about Scrapple all the way on the other side of the country? I'm so impressed!! From what I understand (somethings are best unconfirmed ) scrapple is pretty much what it sounds like, it's the scraps that aren't used in any of the other pork products, like hot dogs. It's really a love or hate it thing, most people are not fans, but I have to say, I really like it!
How are you doing? Thanks again for the AKV 2 bedroom pics. I showed my sister-in-law and she was so excited and it was completely not what she had expected!!!!!!

So much to catch up on after 2 weeks away but I have really enjoyed doing so - have you ever considered writing comedy as a 2nd career? And has your DD seen your comments about the EE pictures?
You were so lucky to catch the lion in action- I have never even seen any of the lions even standing up, never mind roaring!
Oh, I agree completely about getting older and your experience of RnRC- I managed to skip it this time due to whiplash from a ride at Typhoon Lagoon (that's my story and I'm sticking to it)

What a lovely surprise going to V&A -glad you had such a lovely meal there. I hope I manage to eat there one of these days.

Thanks for your earlier reply about the July 4th fireworks - we went to Epcot on your recommendation and it was AMAZING. Way better than the show at the MK which we saw on the 3rd (even though that was pretty spectaular too!) Loved it!

Hope you have enjoyed your dive trip and I am looking forward to the next instalment.

I'm a foodie, I make it a point to know about all kinds of things all food, high end and common folk. My parents brought me up on mid to upper class food, but not the the really high end (I've discovered that on my own). They avoided what might be called "peasant food" but I have discovered a new love for comfort food of the masses, Chicken Fried Steak, Ham & Hominy, and many other foods my parents never introduced me to. I have not ever tried scrapple, but have heard of it on many food shows. I will have to at least try it, I've had Haggis before and it sounds pretty similar.

Anyways back to CJs TR....Love V&A's, seeing what they do for vegetarians was really cool. I'm an omnivore so the only thing I say "no" to there is salmon cause I don't like it.

Returned last night from a trip to the Keys with a friend from the UK. Great time. I'll be back later on today tomorrow. Next update coming soon.

Yay! Anxiously awaiting an update!!! A side note, hows your Mac working for you? We just bought the Mac Book Pro and love it, though I don't think we're using it to the full potential!

I second that, YEA! I am glad you had a good time with your friend. By the way, I am sure you have heard it often, but your daughter is absolutely beautiful (inside and out). You are very lucky she is willing to occasionally vacation with "just Dad".

If I make it back onto the Oasis, and they are still doing Chef's Table, I will eat there twice in a trip. I seriously cannot say enough good things about that meal, and I love V&A's!

I am so glad you were able to pull off the surprise, and the video was awesome. Can't wait to hear more about the upcoming surprises!

And btw, you can pass along my thoughts about her IB program. My daughter is going to a pretty tough engineering school, and while she was tops in her class in HS, this school is kicking her butt. She was so not prepared by her HS. So, if anything, your daughter will be ready for college, and may even think it's a piece of cake compared to her IB HS program. She might not realized it now, but I promise she'll look back and realize how lucky she was to complete the program!
Haven’t sailed on RCCL. That has to be an unbelievable place to beat out V&A. A few other meals I’ve experienced were as good or were better than V&A but never the total experience. Second surprise coming soon.

Her Middle school principal has a daughter going to college right now. He told a group of parents that it is cake compared to High School. I am sure her college academic experience won’t be a snap but she is prepared.

What a great surprise! I Just love V&A's! We've been there three times, twice in the dining room and once at the Chef's table. I can't wait to try the QV room. So great to see what they do for a vegetarian menu.

I know what you mean about the Kurobota Pork Tenderloin, Chef Hummel seems to really like it and I can see why! Just the right amount of fat to the pork ratio. Though we will be going to CG instead of V&A's on our next trip, I'm really looking forward to V&A's for our trip next May. Thanks for a great report and a wonderful meal! I can't wait to enjoy it again for myself!
Admit it though, despite the jacket pic, I fooled you. Never tried the Chef’s table. The couple of times I tried to reserve it, it was already booked. One of these days. The tenderloin was unbelievably good. We also did CG this trip. Not nearly as good as V&A. But I am getting ahead of myself.

30 Credits. Wow. I will pass the good wishes to mine from yours. I noticed that the IB kids have their own sub-culture. Not only in their school but nationwide. She shows me stuff from her Facebook page things like “You know you are an IB’er if...” College recruiters say it is a big plus to have an IB certification.

Funny thing. My friend from the UK is a big fish eater. We went out and I actually ordered a Mahi-Mahi sandwich. It wasn’t bad. Not nearly as good as a burger but healthier. Also had them bring me extra tarter sauce.

I'm sure V&A deserved it though for an experience like that. I mean anyone who will bring you a stool to sit your camera on deserves to be tipped well.
You have to be a crummy server to get less than 20% from me. I was a server in a former life. Hate leaving 18% but I hate even more being dictated how much I will tip. Seen too many bad/lazy servers at the restaurant where I worked. V&A, Prime Time and a few others are typically worthy of breaking my rule. The stool kind of floored me even though it wasn’t my first time there. On an earlier visit, the strap on DD’s dress broke. Before she could get embarrassed, Victoria came back with a safety pin and asked if she could pin the strap for her.

I thought so too. Look what I had; lobster, shrimp, chicken, pork and chocolate. Sure they were uber-prepared but that is the basics of what I dined on. As with the fish, they will do anything they can to provide you with options. Like substituting the chicken for the fish dish.

What a fun surprise. Can't wait to read more.
She discovered that she was also not a beet fan. She did eat much of it though. The presentation was awesome. Wish I could get better pics of all the food because they are not only tasty but beautifully presented. She didn’t pull the “too pretty to eat” trick.

P.S. Did you bring home a menu or were you able to actually remember and spell all of those fabulous dishes?
Hide a jacket in your bag. I have a photographic memory so remembered everything. OK, lying there. They do give you a nicely done personalized menu to take with you, which helped with the descriptions. Tried to scan it but my printer will only scan letter size docs. Another nice touch is they give the females in the party a red rose. Of course the men don’t get anything.

That stinks that they no longer reboot fastpases for EMH. Funny about the solo rides. I will be doing it many times soon. We did the single rider line at EPCOT for the first time and it really cuts down time in line. I imagine it is really fun when you are paired with a newbie.

They only take 16-18 people per night, and it comes with the wine flight. We had a sommelier, a dining room manager and the chef. The chef came out with each course and described it. There was a veal reduction with the main entree that was pretty close to the most perfect thing I've ever tasted. The wine flights were bottomless glasses. I don't think my glass was ever empty. The sommelier described each wine and told us what we should be smelling and tasting and how it tasted different with and without the food. It was definitely an amazing experience just a notch above V&A's. I love V&A's, and I don't like to rank anything above the experience, but I have to say this one took the spot.
