Thank you both for volunteering! I'll add your trips to the February list in Post 1. If I get enough volunteers for February, then I'll be sending out a PM to everyone sometime in late January. This will give you all my info for sending your updates either by text or email.

In answer to Lucy's question regarding what to do, I leave the frequency and content of your updates entirely up to you. I ask only that you give me at least a short description of the food pics you send me. Also I think it's nice if you include your opinion regarding that food, even if it's just one word like gross or delicious. Some people like to do more (making it more like a dining report), which is fine too.

Ok, how about some Christmas day updates from our three reporters currently at Disney World.


Our First Update of the Day was from disneychristmasx3.


On Monday, she and her family were at Animal Kingdom and had lunch at...



Flame Tree Barbecue






dcx3 said, "Four of went with the ribs. We really enjoyed them with the sweet and spicy barbecue sauce. As you can see, we had the key lime mousse for dessert. Although it was light and refreshing, we still couldn't finish."








"DD went with the pork sandwich, which she enjoyed."





Then dinner was also at Animal Kingdom...


Yak & Yeti Restaurant






Malaysian Seafood Curry - Mahi Mahi, scallops, little neck clams, mussels, shrimp, zucchini, roma tomatoes, red curry coconut broth, and jasmine rice


dcx3 said, "For dinner we tried Yak & Yeti for the first time. Three of us chose the seafood curry. It has now become the new favorite meal of the trip, but no one was able to finish."







Shaoxing Steak and Shrimp - skirt steak, tempura-battered shrimp, jasmine rice, stir-fried vegetables, chili plum dipping sauce


"The boys went with the steak and shrimp. These is a definite trend appearing with those two. They loved the shrimp, but the steak was just okay. No rave reviews. The vegetables got a thumbs down. The waiter had recommended substituting fried rice, which they enjoyed."






Fried Wontons - Skewers of fresh pineapple and cream cheese wontons, vanilla ice cream, honey vanilla drizzle


"And finally all 5 went with the wontons. My daughter has decided she liked the wontons but does not like pineapple warm. Everyone made it through only a taste. We just aren't cut out for this kind of eating! Again the meal got high marks from all. We cancelled Christmas morning breakfast reservations in lieu of an early start in the parks to beat the crowds. We will be having Christmas dinner at Rose & Crown."


1 Holiday Roulette Bonus Point Earned for First Update of the Day

Then our next update was sent to us by Debra (debrapagliasotti).


On Monday morning, she and her family had breakfast with the Princesses at...



Cinderella's Royal Table





Lobster and Crab Crepes - warm cheese-filled crepes topped with spinach, sauteed lobster, and blue crab meat with a poached egg perched on top and draped in Hollandaise sauce



Debra said, "This was sooo good. Big chunks of lobster. Very fresh and tasty."






Then their Christmas day lunch was at Epcot's...



Le Cellier






Wild Mushroom Filet Mignon - Le Cellier signature dish served with wild mushroom risotto and white truffle butter sauce


Debra said, "The filet was cooked perfect. Melted in your mouth. Loved the risotto. Fave meal of the trip!"





Then for her dessert, Debra had...





Cheesecake topped with fresh seasonal fruit compote



She said, "This was nice and light. Loved the shortbread crust."

Our last update from yesterday was sent to us by Amy (AppleSister1).


She arrived at Disney World yesterday and sent her first update from Downtown Disney's ...




Paradiso 37





Baja Fish Tacos - crispy seasonal fish, roasted corn salsa, lime crema, spicy slaw, tortilla salad



Amy said, "These were only alright, very dry. Needed some actual slaw, not just shredded cabbage. Server gave me some hot sauce when he saw my reaction and that helped! Side salad was surprisingly lovely!"




Amy also sent us this holiday-themed bonus pic from Downtown Disney...







1 Holiday Roulette Bonus Point Earned for holiday-themed pic



2 Point Roulette Bet placed on Downtown Disney Group 2 for Paradiso 37

The results are in from Vicki (GoofySon'sMom) and they were quite successful.


Vicki said, "First up is 'Ohana bread pudding. Since we had this for breakfast, we did not have the ice cream."




First a pic of the work in progress...




"Flaming the rum!"




And then the final results...






Vicki said, "We loved this! Easy to make and just as delicious as the "real" thing!"



"We were full from a later than planned breakfast so are saving the planned Le Cellier Cheddar Cheese Soup for the weekend."


But for their dinner, they did try another very popular dish from Le Cellier...




Mushroom Filet


Vicki said, "We decided that if the real thing is a 10, this was a solid 8. Very, very good. The truffle butter sauce was amazing!"


"Again too full for dessert so the Yak & Yeti wontons will be tried another night this week!"



Thank you Vicki for sharing your Disney culinary recreations.
Feel free to send the other pics our way whenever you make them.

Then disneychristmasx3 was at Epcot yesterday.


She said, "I did a little bit of shopping around World Showcase with 25,000 or more of my closest friends.
This jalapeno margarita made it a little more enjoyable for my DH."





Jalapeno Margarita (from I believe, La Cava de Tequila)




Then it was on to dinner on the opposite side of World Showcase, at...


Rose & Crown





Grilled New York Strip Steak and Fried Fish with Yorkshire Pudding, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and red wine sauce


dcx3 said, "Three of us chose the steak and fried fish. It was better than expected. I actually enjoyed the hot flaky fish with tartar sauce the most."







Grilled New York Strip Steak with Mashed Potatoes and fried onion rings


dcx3 said, "DD enjoyed her New York strip, although it was the first time all week that anyone complained the serving was small."






Fish and Chips - Beer-battered and served with housemade tartar sauce


"DS had the fish and chips, which was excellent."




Then for their desserts...




Jaffa Tarts - orange cream cakes with chocolate ganache, raspberry sauce and fresh oranges


dcx3 said, "DS and I each had the jaffa tart. It was light."






Flourless Chocolate Cake with an Egg Nog Shooter


"DH had this. It was very rich but good."






Sticky Toffee Pudding


"DS and DD each had the gooey toffee cake. DD especially enjoyed it."
