"We shared the banana bread with peanut butter for dessert. It was excellent! Slices of banana bread with peanut butter in the middle, like a sandwich. It was served with vanilla ice cream and banana caramel sauce. Out of this world yummy! Sorry I don't have a pic though. I checked the photo I took and it looks like a big thing of poo."


Note from jabead: Here is a photo of this dessert, courtesy of DonaldDoleWhip (hopefully he won't mind ). Just imagine this with vanilla ice cream instead of pumpkin.





Grilled Banana Bread and Peanut Butter with Caramelized Bananas, Whipped Cream, and a scoop of Ice Cream (they chose pumpkin ice cream)

That looks so good!! Makes me sad we didn't get the chance to eat at Beaches this last trip!

"We also chose some snacks from the temporary set up for the Boardwalk Bakery..."




Oreo Bon-Bon Cupcake

"These were yummy as always."





Then from another kiosk on the Boardwalk...

And then a dinner update from carobear.


She and her sister decided to go resort hopping tonight and their first stop was at Art of Animation for dinner at...



Landscapes of Flavor





Lemonade with Wild Berry Foam


carobear said, "The lemonade was pretty good, but the foam was strange (especially the texture). Not worth the $3+ price tag."






A Hidden Mickey






Surf and Surf Burger & Fries
Crab Cake topped with fried Popcorn shrimp, tomato, lettuce, and cajun reoulade on a brioche bun







A Close-up


carobear said, "The crab cake was the best part, large pieces of crab. It was hard to share."




And then for Part II of their dinner they went to Port Orleans Riverside's...


Riverside Mill





Create your own Pasta
with Spaghetti Noodles, Alfredo Sauce, Peas, Spinach, Mushrooms, Sundried Tomatoes, Prosciutto, and Parmesan.






Removed from the Carton


carobear said, "The picture seems small, but the portion was really huge. The sauce was a bit bland (we had to add salt) and the noodles had an odd texture (parcooked?), but the veggies were good. A great value."

Next update in the queue is one from Becky (BlovesC).




She said, "The crowds were nuts at Epcot but not too bad at Animal Kingdom.
We had dinner at a deserted...



Flame Tree Barbecue










"Charlie's ribs on the left, my half chicken on the right. Flame Tree is my fave CS in the parks but this is the first time I've ever had the actual BBQ! Good stuff!"

Too funny on that drink name! That is hilarious.

You have gotten some really good updates the past couple of days. They are making me sooo hungry especially since I skipped dinner tonight!

Next we have Susan's (jecskc) daily update.


Saturday, January 19, 2013


Susan said, "For lunch today we were feeling like Mexican again, so we went back to..."


La Cantina de San Angel




"The kids split the plain nachos..."









"DH had the beef tacos..."








"And I had the loaded nachos..."








"We all got churros for dessert again..."


"Again, we were all very happy with our food here."





"Then for dinner, we ate at..."


Mama Melrose



"For starters, DH and I had some wine..."







"I got a Pinot Grigio and DH got a Chianti."





"Our waiter brought us some bread."





"This was your typical hard sourdough rolls. They were steaming hot and were very good with the pepper and oil they had for dipping."




"DH and I shared the calamari..."





"These were pretty tasty. I have had better, but these had a lot of flavor and spice and we enjoyed them."





"For dinner DH and I split the Chicken Campanelle..."





"It came out already split for us. DH enjoyed this more than I did. I liked it, but I found it to be very heavy and I could only manage half of my half. DH finished the rest."





"DD ordered the four cheese flat bread..."





"She really liked this and ate almost all of it. Thumbs up from the pickiest child alive."





"DS ordered the steak and macaroni..."





"He said it tasted OK and he really liked the macaroni. But DH and I found this be a very poor cut of meat. It was very difficult to cut and there seemed to be a lot of gristle and fat."




"For dessert, DH and I shared the Amaretto Cheesecake..."





"Both of us really liked this. It was good and creamy and had a nice amaretto flavor."




"The kids just got vanilla gelato..."





"Which they both liked. Cant go wrong there."


"Overall, this restaurant was a mixed bag. Our service was very kind and efficient and we liked him very much. The chef came out to talk to us because DD has a peanut allergy and I noticed a lot of things with nuts on the menu. He was very nice and upbeat. He said the things that DD had already picked out to order would be fine. So service was good. The food was OK. There were some things we really liked, but other things didnt measure up. I am not sure we would go back here again with so many other options to choose from."

So good night everyone...sweet Disney dreams!

Just like your DD, I'm also home for the holiday weekend, so I've had some time to read a few updates. Lots of great stuff today!

First of all, I was so excited to see my Beaches & Cream banana bread pic make a cameo appearance. Thanks for giving me credit (I recently saw one of my pics used in a dining review with no credit given - that seems rude to me)

Next - it's great to see the temporary Boardwalk kiosk is still offering cupcakes! I really liked that strawberry one over the summer.

I also really enjoyed reading the Crew's Cup Lounge update. A lot of the menu is shared with Captain's Grille (the clam chowder, crab cake, fried rock shrimp, mussels & clams, beef short ribs, lobster sliders, sirloin steak, chicken, pasta creation, and the banana cheesecake), and since I really like Captain's Grille, that's good news!

Finally, I'm glad Becky also loved the avocado gelato that accompanied the sustainable fish tacos at The Wave! That was such a delicious appetizer, and the lime sorbet, pico de gallo sorbet, and avocado gelato were fantastic additions IMO.

Hi Donald!
Just like my DD, it's great to have you home! I hope you will consider this thread your DIS home and check in here whenever time allows. It's always great to see your comments, and I of course was thrilled to have you contribute with updates recently.

First up this morning is the first update received from a new reporter, disneybride96.


She and her DH arrived at Disney World yesterday and they had their first Disney meal at the Animal Kingdom Lodge's...




BOMA








db96 said, "Here is my hubby with his Martha's soup. I had Sausage and lentil."








"Here is my plate:
Spice Crusted Beef Striploin
Slow Roasted Pork Ribs
Fufu
Some type of orange salmon
Peanut rice
Roasted root vegetables.
Lots of amazing things."








And for dessert, Zebra domes of course, but the passion fruit flan and banana butterscotch bread pudding were amazing too!"











db96 said, "We haven't been to Boma in awhile and forgot how amazing it was!"

And sadly it is now time to post Lauren's (Giselle22) final update of her trip, which ended yesterday.


For their last Disney meal, Lauren's group had dinner at the Grand Floridian's...



1900 Park Fare




Lauren said, "Last night we had our last Disney meal at 1900 Park Fare. It was so much fun! The stepsisters are great entertainment. And the food was all really good, especially considering that it's a buffet. Everyone agreed that the beef strip loin in particular was excellent. It was too difficult to try to get pics of everyone's plates, so I just took my own."







"On my first plate I've got alfredo pasta (very good), vegan noodle salad (excellent), greens with mango vinaigrette (yummy), beef strip loin (mmmmm), and roasted veggie salad (good but it's cold; I prefer my squash warm. However, the tomatoes in this were amazing!)."









"On my second plate I got some fresh watermelon and strawberries, then raided the kids station for mac 'n cheese and green beans. Both were good. I also had some butternut squash soup and a piece of french bread. I was a little apprehensive about the soup because it seemed awfully thick, but it tasted really good! I also tried the strawberry soup; it's great! Everyone liked it. Some other things the buffet offered that others in my party enjoyed were a create-your-own pasta station, fresh peel-and-eat shrimp, sushi, and a shepherd's pie."








"For dessert I tried cheesecake, chocolate mousse, and a berry tart. All yummy!
Overall, we were all very impressed with the quality of food here."





"We have a Photopass Plus card so we got to keep the picture package for no extra charge. It comes in a super cute envelope with one 5x7 and four 4x6s. Also on the inside of the envelope is a cute little card with the recipe for strawberry soup! I believe this costs about $30 regularly."



Recipe for 1900 Park Fare's Signature Soup...

One Last Pic of Lauren's Great Group!




And now for Lauren's description of the character interaction her group had with the characters from Cinderella, which appear at 1900 Park Fare Dinner.


"Dinner at 1900 Park Fare was a blast! In the first pic of Anastasia, she's upset with my dad because when she first came up she asked if he was a prince and he said yes. But then he told her he was married and pointed out his kids!"








"We pointed out my brothers, though, and let her know that they were eligible princes! Drizella popped in to see what Anastasia was doing with all of those men."













"When Drizella came by on her own later, we pointed out my older brother as a prince for her! Then she took a pic with all three of the young men, too."







"Lady Tremaine stopped by and said how nice it was to have a table full of adults. She said "Oh, this is nice. No one has sticky fingers and no one will want to hug me-ugh." She had my friend and I make angry glares while we posed with her."








"Cinderella and Prince Charming stopped by too, of course, but they're just not as fun! Anastasia and Drizella got into a big fight at one point and their mother had to come pull them apart, and later on they got a couple little girls together and sang "Sing Sweet Nightingale" just like in the movie--and I mean JUST like in the movie! haha They sounded terrible and we loved it!"



"We had a really great time at Disney World and I can't wait to go back and take more food pics for you!"
