    There's an artichoke pizza flatbread? OMG, something new that I will need to try! I love how we come home from WDW to learn about even more snacks that I want to try.

    Good news here- we booked our WDW trip for next August. A whole week at POR before we get onto the Freedom of the Seas.

    I've been having a lot of health issues this fall, but this thread is the best pick-me-up after a long day of work and doctor's appointments.

    Vicki also visited the Japan booth at the Food & Wine Festival yesterday and got these two items...



    [​IMG]

    Sukiyaki Beef Pan (Marinated Thinly Sliced Rib Eye with Sauteed Onions and Teriyaki Sauce Served in a Bun)


    Vicki said, "This was good except for the sauce made the bun soggy."





    [​IMG]

    California Roll (Avocado, Cucumber, Crab, Mayonnaise, Smelt Roe Rolled in Sushi Rice and Seaweed)


    Vicki said, "This was very good and fresh."




    Regarding their dinner last night, Vicki said this...


    "Last night we had dinner at the Mara but since we were at the pool I didn't have anything to take pictures with. We had 2 Caesar salads with chicken, that both my sister and friend disliked. They said the lettuce tasted like it came from a bag and the dressing really wasn't good. :sad2: I had that night's special which was nut crusted salmon with jasmine rice. This was wonderful, it didn't look or taste like CS food." :thumbsup2

    Love the cheesecake part though."

    Agreed with everything - thanks so much for the shout out, sunnysideup3, and have a great time! (and of course, some awesome food) :)

    The live updates are all so fun to read - I wish I had a trip planned just so I could send in a few updates of my own. :laughing:

    Speaking of live updates, someone needs to get to Flying Fish to report on the Canadian cheddar cheese soup and pumpkin brioche bread pudding. ;)
