I took Kacy for her first driving lesson today. I survived. The start was really rocky but she really ended up doing well.
Hurray for customer service. Sounds like you had better service than me this weekend

One of my favorite places to eat because of its location on the Rivers of America has also changed its menu. The Hungry Bear it is a fun place to to sit and watch all of the action on the water and on a hot day enjoy the shade. I so want to try the fried green tomato sandwich with the sweet potato fries.

Now I have made myself hungry and I am going to go make lunch. I will add more later.
A lemon bumblebee cupcake sounds good. The food at both sounds good to me, but the rest of my family wouldn't be that adventurous, jimica mango slaw on a fried green tomato sandwich? Hmmm.

If you ever have the pleasure of coming out to Disneyland and want to stay offsite the Ayres Hotel is definitely the way I would go. Sometimes it is nice to have a place to decompress after the day at the parks and this hotel offers it.


WBG and I went to San Francisco about a month or so ago. While we were there we went to Ghiradelli Square, there is this cupcake shop called Kara's cupcakes. They have some of the most amazing cupcakes I have ever tasted. My husband and I each got different flavors and then shared them. I got this dark chocolate one that was so light it was delightful, but he got the lemon one. I think that lemon cupcake had to be the best lemon dessert I have ever tasted. I cannot explain it, except to say the lemon taste was light didn't beat you over the head. I hope that the one at the Hungry Bear is the same.

I will definately keep the Ayres in mind if we ever head out that way.

Guess you will have to taste the one at Hungry Bear so that I'll know

Wowza, you're brave. Glad it's working! My mom...yeah, she couldn't teach me to drive at all. Had to hire out! (but I think we've proven that I cost my mom a whole lot more than your daughters cost you!)

I am not going to do that right now.


No, I don't think I am so brave. I think it is a great thing. Maybe she will be more independent.

You will like the sweet potato fries at the Hungry Bear restaurant. I didn't try the fried green tomato sandwich, but my friend during the Memorial Day trip liked it so much that if they came back to DL one day, he will be going back there for lunch.

I grew up on fried RED tomato sandwiches, but never ate a green tomato. Wonder if they taste different? I'm a ketchup-a-holic so I put ketchup on my sandwich. Of course, there isn't much I DON'T put ketchup on.

When I was little, I went to a fancy restaurant with my friend and her parents. I asked for ketchup and the chef came to our table to see what was wrong with my filet. Yep, I even put it on steak.

Me either but I am game. I have known people that put ketchup on everything. My husband used to put hot sauce on everything.

I have never had red or green fried tomatos-- that I remember--. I am going to look for a receipe on line with 5 star ratings and give it a go. I have lots of green tomatoes on the vine. Going to need a few more days for red ones. But can't wait to try and see if I like them.

I think HS is more socially acceptable.

I no longer put it on eggs unless they are scrambled, ham, or fish. Guess I am growing up

I am not much of a fan of fried tomatoes. Rather have a tomato fresh off the vine with melted mozzarella and mayo.

I do know that Fanny Farmer might have one. Try googling it, and please let me know how it turns out.

I love ketchup on scrambled eggs.


Tomatoes with melted mozzarella sounds really good.

I'm so glad I found this! New to Disney, new to these boards, and just discovered the joy of TRs! Looking forward to following this one to help me plan our family's very first Disney trip! Plus I gotta give the love to a resident of my hometown!
