    Today is the last full day of Paula & Hunter's trip and they finally made it over to the Polynesian Resort to have breakfast at...


    KONA CAFE




    They started their meal with this...


    [​IMG]

    100% Kona Coffee French Press Pot





    And then Paula finally got to try these...


    [​IMG]

    Macadamia Nut-Pineapple Pancakes with macadamia nut butter, pineapple sauce and bacon




    After Paula sent me this pic, I told her that I would award her Bonus Points if she cleaned her plate. ;)

    She then sent me this pic...



    [​IMG]


    Needless to say, I was quite impressed and was about to award her the Bonus Points anyway when Paula said...


    "Hunter has told me we are not leaving until I finish them!" :lmao:


    And sure enough, a few minutes later I received this pic...



    [​IMG]



    So let's give it up for Paula...the first live reporter to conquer the Kona pancakes!!! :worship::worship::worship::worship::worship:

    Wow major kudos to Paula for finishing those pancakes!! Her poor stomach must be apt to burst so I don't blame her for delaying the cupcake ;).

    This thread has me more excited with each passing day for my own trip. Only 13 more sleeps!!

    thanks for posting barb! :thumbsup2

    our server let me substitute mashed potatoes for the sweet potato puree. my daughter loves mashed potatoes! she ate off my plate but he was very kind and brought her out some grapes & cheese as well.

    for the appetizer, it was either a salad or the soup. the soup was amazing! very hearty with a deep mushroom flavor. there were chunks of portabella mushrooms, potatoes and very tender beef. it was delicious!!

    the pork chop was much better than i had expected. it was moist and very flavorful. i enjoyed it very much.

    we're waiting for the rain to pass so we can get back to MK for MNSSHP!

    :cheer2:

    Hi friends! The rain is letting up but there's more in the cards for tomorrow. Then, on Monday when I have to fly home Sandy makes landfall in the North East and will disrupt travel from like VA to Maine. Pray that the weather Gods stay on my side!

    It does! I really don't care for avocado but I listened to the reviews and tried it anyway. This was really, really good and tasted kinda like banana but nothing like avocado. I really loved this and was sure I wouldn't. Can't wait to get another one.

    I love guacamole, but I just couldn't imagine DRINKING avacado. But now that I know that you don't taste any avacado, I'll definitely give it a try!

    Thanks! :thumbsup2
