I looked up some recipes on how to make them myself once and was instantly scared away by the calorie count!
I made them for Christmas brunch last year and probably will this year as well. There's no calories on Christmas, right?

I also love the picture of Andrew with the blue tones of his shirt. Very nice.
Thank you! I loved playing with the settings on the camera!

Can't wait to read more!
Thank you so much! We really enjoy Hacienda even though it gets mixed reviews sometimes here.

I LOVE brats! I think its from being a Wisconsin girl! With sauerkraut for me please!

The pork buts also look good! I've heard mixed reviews of them there though! If we stop I hope we get a good batch!!
I didn't even know the pork buns existed until DH handed them to me. I am glad I did't read the mixed reviews.

This might be a stupid question but how do you snack around the world? Do you go to the quick dining booths or something? I would totally love to do what you did!

Yep. A couple of times we have gotten something in each country even if it was only a drink. This year we just picked what we really wanted and skipped a few countries. It is a fun way to spend a day. I love Disney dining and make ADRs and then change them a 100 times but having the one day with no ADR is really nice, too.

Love the idea of snacking around the World as well! May I just say that I have been keeping track and I do believe you have changed your plans 102 times! You know I will give you a hard time since we are so much alike. Just one more tweak!!!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

In reality, probably more like 202 times!

We had a really nice weekend. So nice, I haven't really been here on the Dis! Cleaned closets, cooked, rearranged the living room, cooked, bought a much needed new vaccuum, cooked. Did I mentioned that I cooked?

Hopefully I will get these reviews finished up this week! Sorry all for the delay!

No worries about any delays - life doesn't arrange its schedule around the DisBoards unfortunately! I'm sure your family appreciated your organization and culinary skills! Did you make any Disney favorites?? Any margarita flights on your dinner table??

You have a lot of my favorites in your recent updates! That Napoleon from France is my FAVORITE snack! I was full when we were in EPCOT last week so I got it to go and then had it another day for breakfast.

I am dying to try that almond cheesecake from Narcoossee's. That might have to be my next signature!

Nope, no Disney favorites or margaritas ... plenty of wine though!

Yeah, I don't know how I have missed that Napolean! I can't wait to have another in just one month!

I am sorry for the lack of updates! Only two more days to go and I am slacking! I am vowing to finish by Sunday even if that means doing all of them Sunday afternoon!

But on the "big news" front ... look at my tickers ... yes "s", plural! I just booked our March trip including the plane tickets!

Oh my GOSH!! How exciting!! You are going to be at WDW so often that we're going to need a bigger signature space for you!! Seriously though, how totally exciting! Where are you staying during Spring Break? I've been checking prices but it is so gosh darn expensive at the end of March!

Right?! I have never done this before. We are a once a year family. Ironically the only reason it is possible is because my old job laid me off. I am using the 401k money. Not enough to deal with rolling over but enough for a couple of quick weekend trips to Disney! Jay said that I put up with so much junk at that job that I deserve to do what I want with the money. Well, Ok!

We are only going from 3/23 until 3/26 and staying at the Art of Animation. Andrew doesn't love the Little Mermaid deal and would have much rather stayed in a Lion King suite but that just wasn't in the budget. We actually arrive about midnight on the 22nd because that flight was $100 cheaper per person! I already have Be Our Guest reserved on 3/24. Everything else is subject to change!

Ok, I have been a bad Diser long enough! Let's finish this up!

So after our snack around the world day, I planned dinner at Tokyo Dining. We had never been and at the time I booked it did not like sushi. I figured we wouldn't be super hungry so we would pick & choose from the things we did like. Well, DS and I tried sushi at my sisters and were now really looking forward to this meal!

I started with a sake-rita which was really good. Tasted like a slightly sweeter regular margarita



Here's some menu pics ...







DS and I shared a tuna roll



This was truly delicious. Being sushi novists I don't have much to compare it to but we really enjoyed it.

For appetizers, DS has the Wafu Ribs - sake, soy and ginger-braised pork ribs



I didn't try these but he enjoyed them.

I had the Assorted Tempura - shrimp, chicken breast, and seasonal vegetables served with Japanese Tempura dipping sauce but gave the shrimp to DH



DH had the Kakuni - braised pork belly that has been slowly cooked in sake, soy sauce and ginger, served with spicy yellow mustard



And the picture is so blurry. Again, I didn't try it but he enjoyed it.

For entrees, DH had the Sankai - breaded and fried mix of chicken, pork and shrimp



DS had the Tori - chicken breast tempura with veggies



And I had Chicken Katsu - Panko crusted boneless breast chicken lightly fried



Look at all that food! And we all thought it was just amazing. My chicken was the best chicken cutlet I have ever had. Light and crispy, not greasy at all. I shared some of Andrew's tempura veggies and they were perfect. The miso soup was nicely flavored. Everything was beyond our expectations.

Needless to say, we were too full for dessert

Total dining plan cost was $101.55. Total OOP for the sushi roll, my drink and I think a beer for DH was $26.63.

This is a definitely go back for us. I do have an ADR for Andrew and I in November thinking we can easily share one of those platters of food and a sushi roll. Course I have already made several changes to my November plans so we will see if this one sticks.!

As we left, we stopped to watch Illuminations on the porch. Very cool bonus view!



All in all a super great day!
