Looking forward to more from your trip. Thanks for bringing us along!

THANK YOU for reading.

here's what we had for dinner. my sister is visiting from nyc & my mom made us dinner. my sister is a pescatarian so no actual beef or pork in our meals. this is pretty easy cause we eat a lot of fish and veggies in korean food anyways.



spicy fish stew with shrimp. mmmmmm!

the spread:



we eat like this every day. i love love love korean food (not that i'm biased). so this is why eating at disney is disappointing sometimes. i need some spice at disney!



....and finally:



SHRIMP!

YOUR photos of Cosmic Rays look like the ones we had last May...there was five adults and two munchkins...BUT I did get the half chicken, potatoes and green beans...it was delicious...

Thanks for your great reviews and sharing ..

and sometime dont forget to do that recipe for me..

thank you again!

i really wish i would have gotten the rotisserre chicken for my dad. i enjoyed it during MNSSHP with emme.

i hope you have a total blast at epcot. will f&g still be happening? i'm going to update my part 2 from f&g soon.

i will definitely get you that recipe. i've seen some online for the "ddak tori ttang" but the main difference between mine & the other recipes is that i use korean crushed red pepper (very different from the crushed red pepper at the local grocery store) & the recipes online uses red bean paste.

i will PM you some links & some modifications.

Wow, that's quite a spread your mom made for your sister's visit. I bet your sister was thrilled, comfort food at it's best because it's made by mom
I'm from the San Francisco bay area living in Ireland now, and boy do I miss Korean food! There are some Korean restaurants here but I've not ventured in to any of them. Any sort of non-Irish food here tastes nothing like it does back home, so mostly we don't go out for it. Indian restaurants can be really good here, but other foods are really hit or miss (mostly miss, lol). I haven't ventured in to making Korean food yet, but maybe by the time your thread is over I'll have enough confidence and motivation to try it. I should have paid more attention years ago when my Korean boss would make dinner for us girls. She was an incredible cook!

I think my belly is going to rule our trip to WDW in the fall.

i had no idea there were korean restaurants in ireland! at least there would be some kimchi there. my mom is such a good cook that i don't even attempt to make korean food. it would end up being an epic fail. however, i am putting together a photo book with recipes from my mom to give to emme when she gets older. it's been my labor of love! i am so excited for this project. when in fall will you be going to disney??

We're going the last two weeks in October. I'm doing pretty well when it comes to not blabbing about it to the kids, lol.

I love the idea of the photo recipe book you are making for your daughter What an awesome gift!

FOOD & GARDEN PART 2





after lunch @ cosmic ray's, we spent more time with my parents at magic kingdom. after a few more hours, my parents were ready to return to the condo so emme & i said good bye & headed back to epcot for some more yummy snacks.

emme was still sick so she ended up falling asleep which allowed me some time to eat in silence & enjoy my food. silence is such a treat with a 3 year old.


i was meeting my friend jackie @ the mexico pavillion in the world showcase. she was inside with her boyfriend exploring delicious margaritas. i decided to check out the crab tostada & partake myself in a delicious margarita.



Tostada de Jaiba (Crab tostada served with Chipotle mayonnaise and Valentina salsa) - $5.50



Tostada de Jaiba (Crab tostada served with Chipotle mayonnaise and Valentina salsa) - $5.50


has anyone noticed the amount of crab on top of this tostada?! it was unbelievable! after my disappointing lobster snack @ italy (which was $2 more, btw), i was extremely pleased with the tostada. it was almost too pretty to eat....almost.

this tostada was absolutely mouth watering delicious. i squeezed the lime on top of the tostada which added a perfect amount of acid & brightness to the dish. the chipotle mayo had a tiny bit of heat as did the salsa. the crunch of the tostada was great texture to the creaminess of the crab. together, all the ingredients were magical.

i still could not believe this snack (which was a generous serving) was only $5.50. it was well worth it. i was very sad when i ate my last bite. this tostada was so yummy.


i also ordered this:



Rosita Margarita on the rocks (Tequila, triple sec and rose infusions - $8.50)

i was pretty intrigued with this combination & giggled when i saw that the margarita was actually pink. i was hoping that this wasn't made with rose water (ick). the rose infusion brought a little bit of sweetness to cut into the triple sec & was actually quite good. they were generous with the amount of tequila in the drink because i definitely felt the drink. it was a bit pricey but was very refreshing and good.

two big thumbs up mexico!



onwards, we moved onto germany.





i read about the savory bread pudding & i really wanted to try this. my last trip to germany was during food & wine fest where i was severely disappointed in the roasted bratwurst in the pretzel roll. but the beer was very good. here's hoping for some happier results.



Savory Bread Pudding with Spring Peas and Wild Mushroom Ragout - $3.75



Savory Bread Pudding with Spring Peas and Wild Mushroom Ragout - $3.75 & Krombacher Hefeweizen - $3.50


i really wanted to like this bread pudding. i'm a huge fan of mushrooms & this bread pudding had a ton of mushrooms in it. however, i could not get over how salty this thing was. it tasted like cream of mushrooms on steroids. the bread pudding itself was indead savory but i just could not get over the saltiness of the dish. i was disappointed in germany...again.

the beer however, was delicious.

speaking of beer...



Krombacher Hefeweizen - $3.50



emme was awake from her nap so we went sight seeing for a little bit.




i loved LOVED these gnomes. i'm going to buy these gnomes in april when i return to disney. absolutely adorable!


my mom loves orchids and has some of the orchids with the roots showing at her house. these reminded me of her.



beautiful.


we made our way to france next.





i ordered this:


La Vie en Rose Frozen Slush (Grey Goose vodka orange, St. Germain liquor with white and red Cranberry Juice) - $9.75

this was refreshing but it wasn't as slushy as my other slush drinks in france. it was on the watery side but was still good.


for my snack, i ordered:



Terrine campagnarde, baguette et compote de cerises (Country style pate served with baguette and cherry compote) - $4.75

i love pate & this pate was scrumptious! i loved the cherry compote which really went well with the briney-ness of the pate. the baguette was sliced thin and very crunchy. this was a winner in my book.


while emme & i sat on a bench in france, we were relaxing with some friends.









after devouring my pate & finishing my slushie, we continued our walk & ran into some more friends:











it kind of creeps me out that the humans have no eyes on their faces but characters like pooh & lotso have eyes. so weird & creepy!


i had room for one more dish so i made my way to florida fresh to get another helping of the shrip & grits. i had it the day before but it was definitely worth another taste.



Shrimp and Stone Ground Grits with Andouille Sausage, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes and Cilantro - $5.50

once again, this dish was cooked perfectly. i was so surprised the night before at the high quality of this dish that i was even more surprised it was just as good the second day. this dish is amazing!! i love everything about it. the grits are sooooo good.




look how large this shrimp is!! there are 3 in this dish & it only costs $5.50. it's a total bargain in my opinion and well worth the $5.50.



my tummy was so happy with my choices, minus the overly salty bread pudding. but the bread pudding only cost $3.75 so i wasn't as bitter as i still am about the lobster atrocity in italy (refer to my first f&g post for more).


emme took home a new friend from epcot:



baby duffy! anyone know why duffy is so dang expensive? he was $31.95 (minus my 10% discount for AP) but seriously, why?!?! i couldn't say no as she's always asked for duffy but i always managed to distract her but she was pretty much sick the entire trip so i gave in. he is pretty cute tho....cute but expensive.













we made our way out of epcot to head back to our condo. i had a great few hours at epcot & was sad that our day had come to an end.


and despite it being 70 & windy, this girl managed to get sunburned.



lovely, isn't it?!

My pleasure!

Across the Duffy photo spot at Epcot is a merch store that has Duffy & a ton of outfits. There's also a bunch of different Duffy dolls too.

I still can't believe how expensive he is!

Thanks for reading along.
