i was going to tell you basically what she did, great thing about that dish is you can add basically whatever veggies you like and it will still turn out good...


or just invite her over and have her make it for you. or ship you some on dry ice.

Caught up! I enjoyed your pictures of the demonstration and your Food and Wine tastings. Wow, that hand roll in Japan looked really good.

Cynthia, I'm glad that you're using the cookbook. It's so easy for those to just get put on a shelf!

I always have to use links to catch up. I must ADD because I find some of the banter in other people's TRs a little overwhelming.

It really is. I love looking at people's world showcase pics. I find the world showcase pics to be my second favorite pics. AK pics are always my first.

Yes - I don't remember seeing them before. I'm not even sure if they were just there for F&W or if they are a permanent thing. They are pretty cool.

That hand roll was amazing! So yummy. I'm hit or miss with my cookbooks, the tried and true ones Get worn out but I'm not as good with some others. I spent literally a day over the holidays reading through all of them, book marking things to try and finding a lot of things in some of the ones I never use.

I've utterly failed at follow through.

You can say that again. All my cats are the same age. One of the disadvantages to that is they will all be elderly at the same time.

I think its awesome that Cynthia really puts her cooking knowledge to good use, unlike someone else we know.

And that is exactly why I never buy a cookbook! Of course the fact that I am culinary challenged might have something to do with it as well.

I have to admit I was laughing throughout that entire update. Someone was feeling a little bit happy after her drinks!

Alfresco

Ok so before I get to my next update, I realized I didn't post some PP pics. After we finished our lovely lovely meal at Flying Fish and headed to the WS for a food and wine dessert, I lost Mary Ellen for a few minutes at the IG.

Apparently I decided I needed yet more pictures of myself.

In my defense, for those of you following my other TR you know that pictures of me are fairly few and far between (in fact there may only be one more between where I'm at and the end of the trip). And when there are pictures, more often than not my 13 year old took them and I'm making faces. So, on the girls trips, I do maximize that PP as heaven only knows when I might have a chance at getting a decent shot of myself.

I give you....a lovely evening in France.





After which I sprinted around the world, the long way around, in my red snakeskin print flip flops in search of my little lemon delight.

and bubbly.

My workout for the day.

Now...fast forward about 22 hours...

After our wonderful seminar, a stroll around the WS with some generous folks sharing beer, and food tips it was time to head back to the villa. Why? Well for some pool time of course! I can’t recall if Mary Ellen and I headed back together, or not. But I think we did. I know that I shopped in the WS while she was getting her zen on and on the way back stopped into both the bakery and the candy store to look at some little treats I planned to take home for the gang and picked a couple of things up, I think we just split up when we got to Seashore Sweets. Once back up in the room we changed and headed to the villa pool and I think we headed down together. I believe we chose the villa pool for a few reasons. First, it was a lot closer than the cottage suite pool, second it quieter than the Luna Park Pool and lastly, I hadn’t seen it yet! I imagine we made a drink in our mugs to take to the pool and I know I brought my kindle down there. I admit, I didn’t bring my camera, or my phone I think as I’m sure it needed to charge after the morning so we could get through the evening. Perhaps Mary Ellen took some pictures?

Here is what I recall about the villa pool. It is a nice, quiet pool, though darn close to the canal so not as private as some of them are. Not bad though. Right next to Community Hall for folks who like that.

I found these to give you the idea







Just as it in the pictures, it was pretty shady, and the loungers were lined up like soldiers, either bumping into the hedges or each other, making it a bit difficult to move them to position them to get any sun. I believe I read for a bit, wasn't quite warm enough to hop in the pool and as I read, I started to get sleepy so decided to flip over and lay down. So I did.

And took a very short nap. Or dozed. Either way as is bound to happen when I am lying flat on my stomach, I feel like I get stuck and stiff and getting back up is well, not the easiest thing to do. Not the smartest thing for my neck either but it truly does feel lovely, and decadent, at the time.

Either I really did bring my phone or Mary Ellen was keeping us on task with her phone (I think she was...as for some reason it seems there was more ref drama but I could be wrong), but either way at some point I managed my way back up to the room to get ready for dinner. Last night and we’d be going out in style. Dinner at the Brown Derby on an EMH night. Though it was starting to cool, it was so lovely out, we decided to walk. As you can see, I was playing around with the settings a bit.























The boat we didn’t take





It doesn't look very welcoming in this picture does it?

Alfresco, Continued

I am very fond of the hat and really don't want it to go







Decent crowds





And...our destination!













For those who are curious about how long the walk is...my first picture on our walk was at 7:07, very close to the Villas. Our ADR was at 7:20 and, we walked through the dates at 7:20 and these next 2 pics were taken at 7:28. Not a bad walk at all!

Love these





As we had walked up, we noticed that the small outside patio was set up and a few folks were dining alfresco.

Which looked lovely!

AND they had space heaters.

Winner Winner
Chicken Dinner

First up, a glass of Conundrum



Then

Crisy Phyllo Napoleon of Bleu Affine - with wild mushroom duxelles, griled portobello, golden chanterelles, and a fig reduction $11.00




Followed by

Duck Two Ways - sauteed confit with swiss chard over an herb and goat cheese polenta cake finished with a pan-seared maple bourbon duck magret with a sun-dried cherry sauce $35.00





I believe Mary Ellen had the same wine and appetizer but had a different entrée.

It did cool off, but both of us had light jackets/sweaters and combined with the space heaters it worked out pretty well.

Overall it was a lovely dinner. I really enjoyed dining outside and people watching and I do love DHS at night, something about all the lights makes it so pretty at night, prettier than it is I think in the day. However our waiter was...a space cadet.

Who whined.

He wasn't getting enough tables

He had to wait on tables outside

People were using the Dining Plan

He was happy we weren't.

He was flustered, overly chatty in a bit of a negative way (though I honestly believe he had NO clue he was coming across like that, I think he thought he was pretty neat and funny....which is always unattractive) and if memory serves…a bit sweaty. Which is odd on a cooler night so maybe I’m remembering that wrong but for a guy who was complaining about how many tables he had and being split inside and out, he didn't manage it very well. I waited tables, and managed restaurants for years and generally...give servers the benefit of the doubt. This chap annoyed me.
And wasn't fast. Looks like our first stop after dinner was about 9:30 so almost 2 hours for dinner. Luckily it was EMH and time was on our side still with the park not closing until 11. First stop....



Pretyy sure I got the same ending again. Wah.

And then I think we may have diverged. Mary Ellen went to…Animation and drew something? Maybe? I think I walked over there with her as there was something I had to pick up nearby and then I wanted to shop a little more (really, I don’t shop that much, this was kind of funny in that I had set out as a top 10 item to really explore the shops everywhere, as I normally never ever do! And of course look at stuff for the kids. AKA Tees.

I headed here first













Enough of that! I NEEDED to go somewhere

Alfresco, Continued

Enough of that! I NEEDED to go somewhere



And for some odd reason I think the single rider line was CLOSED. Not the whole ride, the FP line and standby were just fine. Just the single rider line.



So I trudged back here









Cell phone wasn't cutting it on the pics but apparently I'd given up trying with the other camera or, more likely, was too lazy to get it out.





The CM at RRC had told me to try back. So I did! Did I have any luck?



Why yes, yes I did!

During this, Mary Ellen and I had been texting and coordinated a meetup.





She was still in her class /drawing session (I think) and so of course I looked at more shops.



EMH on my last night. Almost over. What do you think we did?

Well, we got a picture to start



Maybe I did go in the pool....can't think why else my hair would be in a ponytail lol.

And then we decided there was one thing we should check on.



Did we go for it?



Hmmmn

Well OF COURSE we did!









My accuracy sucked.

Lets recap
  • Coffee on the Verandah with an AMAZING view
  • Opened AK
  • Epcot F&W
  • Pool time
  • Closed DHS at EMH

It may not be a 4 park day but darn close. It was a darn good and productive day. And yet, relaxing too! What more could you ask for on your last day? Oh besides the fact that your roomie was leaving a day after you so you didn't have to pack up and check out? Gotta love that. That and a flight that didn't leave until 6:25pm would give me while not a full day, a decent half day in which to say goodbye.

Your pp pics in front of France are lovely!
And I love those silhouette shots of ToT with the sunset! Awesome!
Glad you enjoyed your dinner, despite the awkward waiter.

Somehow I don't think this is a case where you are finally admitting it so you can move beyond it.........

I can relate.......definitely the same for me!

No men that I know, that's for sure.

Let's just say we ran into a little snafu!

Next thing we know you'll be having her taking orders!

Well if I can't get her to come visit and prepare it fresh, I guess ordering delivery would be the next best thing.

OMG - that hand roll was delicious. I really can't wait to have one again in October. So, so good!

And that is exactly why I never buy a cookbook! Of course the fact that I am culinary challenged might have something to do with it as well.

Thanks! The weather here is beautiful and the island is so pretty!

So glad the weather is nice and you are having a good time!

I think I used those exact words.

I always love the sunset pictures as the lights are starting to come on.......

I think I would have needed a reduction of more than just the fig..........

Huh???

So how was the duck? I've never tried duck before, but most people I have heard describe it say it is a little tough and chewy........

Eating outside seems like it would make for a pleasant evening and meal. Sorry your waiter took away from that.........

Why yes, yes I did!
You can never have too many rides on RnR!!!

Hmmmn

Well OF COURSE we did!
I think I would have had to ride it also, since I have never ridden it at night! And yes I know it is an indoor ride and time of day doesn't affect it, but I don't think I've ever seen the wait time that low during EEMH so I would have had to take advantage!!!

And I have to agree that DHS is a lot prettier at night all lit up............and definitely when it is the Osborne Lights doing the lighting!!!
