Oh my, poor Andrew! How's he feeling today? Hopefully not too bad.

And how 'bout Andrew's mom...how's she holding up?

Ouch!!! Looks like he may have a nice rugged scar as a little memento of his soccer career!! Glad to know he didn't have a concussion. Sorry about having to deal with that and of course the phone call!!

Hi. I came over from the Live Thread to follow along on your dining adventures. So far so good! Can't wait to see more.

And poor Andrew. That eye looks so sore. Hope he has a speedy recovery!

Thank you all for the Andrew well wishes! He (and I) are doing ok. I was a wreck driving to get him but OK after I saw him. It is still very swollen but he says not painful, just annoying. The doctor said there should be a very minimal scar so we will see. Stitches out next Friday which is my birthday so a good excuse to take the day off!

Late night at work today and late pickup of Jay tomorrow so probably no updates til Saturday. I promise to get a bunch up this weekend!

And Brenda, how's the ankle?

No Way!! That's my dad's birthday! What a great day to be born!!

Thanks for asking.... it's is less painful/throbbing so that's good. I had to pass up a Disney tour next week so I was sad. Well, actually, I could have done it but I didn't want to rent a wheelchair and have my friend push it. Oh the negative side of a bum foot. I'm only thinking of the Disney impact!!

So next up was lunch at



But first we stopped to watch the manatees have a lunch snack!





We were seated right by the tank so we got to utilize the









First up were the rolls -



I can honestly say that I remember nothing about these. Not even if they were crunchy or soft. So I am going to say that these must not have been very good.

Andrew decided to once again use Coral Reef to try some new things –
First up, the Seared Crab Cakes - with remoulade and fennel-apple slaw $11.99



These were pretty tasty. We don’t really like crab but he enjoyed these and I liked the bite he let me have!

I had the seasonal soup which was asparagus … and for some reason the picture will not upload. It is one of a dozen or so that is coming up as an ‘error’.

It had good flavor but was thin. So thin it was hard to eat with a spoon. I wanted to pick it up and drink it. I like my soup to have come consistency to it.

Andrew continued being adventurous by ordering the Coral Reef Lobster
Orecchiette Pasta - with White Cheddar Cheese and Basil Oil $28.49



For the most part, he enjoyed it. He didn’t eat the really large lobster pieces. He is better than I because I wouldn’t even try it!

I tried the Grilled Mahi Mahi - with Laughing Bird Shrimp, Hearts of Palm, Jasmine Rice, Cilantro, and a Coconut-Lime Sauce $25.99 (minus the shrimp)



This was truly delicious. The fish was mild (I don’t like strong fish) and the sauce was just perfect with the jasmine rice. I would love to learn to make this sauce at home

This guy joined us during the meal ..



We were too stuffed for dessert plus we knew there was a particular sweet treat that we wanted to try!



All in all, another really enjoyable meal at Coral Reef. We will definitely return.

I am enjoying your thread so much! My son and I go to Disney a couple times a year, he is 16 turning 17 in November. I understand how you must feel about him growing up. It certainly is bittersweet. I wish life had a pause button, or maybe even a rewind button so I could pick him up and feel those little arms wrapped around me again.

Vicki great view with that table! They've changed the mahi mahi a bit since the last time we were there. I tried a bite of Em's and it was ok. That's actually saying a lot since I'm not a fish lover!

Hmmmm what sweet treat were you going to try???

Getting caught up now! I hope you and Andrew are feeling better by now (particularly that Andrew's pain is down), and it's nice to see that you had positive experiences at Paradiso 37, 'Ohana, and Coral Reef.

We are so similar on our Ohana preferences. I don't touch the bread, I don't touch the wings but am obsessed with the potstickers, I don't eat the noodles because they are too sweet, and I really liked the new dressing even though I was obsessed with the old dressing!

Great coral reef run down. I've been eyeing up the Mahi for our trip later this month and you just sold me.
