The thing with the dining plan is that on the regular one you get 1 TS, 1 QS and a snack for each day. The TS includes an entree and dessert, the QS includes a menu item or combo, both with soft drinks, and the snack can be almost anything like a Mickey Bar, a cookie, fruit, soda...

What we find is that between two of us we order two appetizers, one entree and one dessert, and we rarely even eat at QS locations. If we do we split that, so I find the dining plan to be too much food. If I'm trying to eat at the F&W kiosks, I don't even bother with TS reservations becuase there's just too much food!

The chocolate is a doctored box (the strawberry/ganache one I posted on the last thread) and the white chocolate is completely from scratch. I'm sure I can just rent a car and run over
Last time we shopped for groceries at Walmart in Florida, the oranges, apples and grapes started to mold on us less than a week after we bought them. I wish I knew of supermarket inbetween. I wasn't so impressed with Winn Dixie and there's another market close by SSR that I've heard horror stories about. I don't know East Coast chains well enough.

We'll probably have a car, and I'm sure Fran would love a trip to Walmart! I just don't want to buy my produce there!

You run over to the grocery store as long as you promise not to run over anything else.

Bobbi, we should make similar room requests so that we can have rooms close by. That way we'll have two kitchens to work with. I don't know what rooms are where and which are convenient to the BBQs. My first stay in the BCV will be this Fall. I've only had four DVC trips to FL since we bought our membership in 2007, but I'll be making up for it in the next few years! Now VGC, that's a different story. I've stayed there like six times since they opened two years ago!

Grilling the main course sounds like a good idea, we could do shrimp or fish kebabs, or swordfish steaks ( I have a an excellent recipe, well actually it's Ina Garten's Indonesian Grilled Swordfish which doesn't take tons of ingredients that come in large perishable jars) and then we could do whatever kind of meats, brats, steaks, chicken breasts, pork tenderloin. The options are many and we could have a big feast one of the nights during our stay!

Each of us could whip up various side dishes, salads and desserts and it would be a party!

Sounds good to me. PIO is missing in action for her saturday. I wish they would come out with the 2013 now to book. It would make it so much easier. Thats it I am going straight to the top.

Yeah, things like milk, meat, and produce, I wouldn't get at Walmart. But everything else, I had no problem buying there. As long as it wasn't perishable I also sometimes shopped at Target, since that was literally a block away from my apartment.

Think whole paychecks but without all the wheat and natural crud. Did you ever shop at Gelson's when you lived down here?

I don't even mind their frozen stuff. They have a lot more of those frozen foods (dump 'em in the skillet and voila dinner for two) than our regular supermarket. However, I can't eat that kind of stuff right now. Not if I'm going to get into that dress to pig out on German food.

I can't eat it right now, but if we're at WDW all bets will be off! I'm a total Mac n Cheese junkie. If you didn't put bacon or anything in it Sharon's DH could eat it too. Although it could be bad if I want to wear that German Dress to MNSSHP....
