One more pic from Paula & Hunter's dinner at...


California Grill



Hunter told their server to surprise them when it came time to order dessert and this is what they were brought...






From what I can tell this is a combination of three of the desserts listed on their current Dessert menu: the Heather's Chocolate Sampler (Marshmallow Whoopie Pies, Chipotle Chocolate Cupcake, Peanut Butter Buckeye Pop, and Valrhona Mint Chocolate Cup), the Valrhona Chocolate Cake with Blackberry Citrus Sorbet, and Key Lime Cheesecake.


Paula said, "All I'm gonna say is WOW!!!"

Paula & Hunter are relaxing at their resort, Coronado Springs, today and had lunch at the Food Court there...



Pepper Market












Paula said, "The lunch buffet is not much to write home about. I was ready to not have lunch at all, but DH wanted to check it out. It was okay. The chicken nuggets are exactly like McDonald's chicken McNuggets!"

Just received our first live update from nickymaria...



She said, "We are safe and sound at AoA and I was hoping to send you some yummy Landscape of Flavors images but it was quite busy and we were very hungry so we ended up picking from the grab-n-go. DD8 had the California roll with a side of grapes, DD6 had the "sweet and savory" box which held Brie cheese, cheddar cheese, grapes, apples, focaccia slices and chocolate covered strawberries. I had a spicy tuna roll. It was all adequate - typical grocery store-quality sushi. The Brie was very yummy but the strawberries were a bit soft. I also thoroughly enjoyed a Skinny Coconut Mojito by the pool. That was yummy!"

I received our first live update today from vikkii19, who was at DHS and had lunch at...


50's Prime Time Cafe



For an appetizer, Vicki & friends shared...





Beer Battered Onion Rings served with horseradish sauce




Then for the three of them, they ordered two of these...




Aunt Liz's Golden Fried Chicken with French Fries and Corn

Note from jabead: Menu says this entree is served with Mashed Potatoes, Chicken gravy, and Southern greens, so I think they must have made some substitutions.


Vicki said, "There was more than enough food for all of us and it was all great!"
