    Ice cream in waffle bowls, scallops at Cali Grill, waffles with mascarpone, and swordfish at DCA's finest restaurant - what a great collection of food pics.

    But among today's updates, the dish I'm craving most is Linda's oatmeal cakes with island fruit compote and greek yogurt. It just sounds so good right now. :thumbsup2

    Hi Barb. Well, we are back home now and just want to thank you for all you are doing for this thread. We had fun taking the photos to send to you. I have to admit I didn't get on the boards while on vacation but I usually don't. So getting caught up tonight has been great fun. Keep up the excellent work. :thumbsup2

    The wind is howling (and I'm scared to leave my building, due to downed wires and trees falling down nearby), but I feel safe inside. :) Still, it's sad to hear about fatalities that have already occurred along the East Coast, and there have been some frightening stories coming out of NYC, Atlantic City, and other places. :worried: I'm hoping that the overall aftermath isn't too grim. But for now, this thread is definitely a comforting place to be. :goodvibes

    Good to know you are safe and smart to stay inside. My DS wasn't prepared and is living off of pizzas ordered yesterday. He tried but last night there was nothing else left where he looked.

    How is your mom? Did she get hit bad or did she luck out and ride out the storm with no problems? My mom is also alone, but close by, I can only imagine how worried you have been.

    I spoke to her earlier and it sounds like she's okay - she she spent all Friday and Saturday making sure she was stocked up on supplies (so she didn't have to drive anywhere yesterday or today, which is a huge relief).

    Hopefully your DS will be able to find something to eat tomorrow besides pizza. It sounds like the weather should be slightly better in the evening, but the cleanup process could delay things from starting up quickly. Sunday was a horrible day to be in the shops - I bought some food at Trader Joe's around midday, and the lines stretched all the way to the back of the store. It was the same at other nearby supermarkets. :eek:

    Back to the West coast for a few last updates from our Disneyland Live Reporter, Linda67.



    Linda was at the Disneyland park yesterday and had lunch at Frontierland's...


    Rancho del Zocalo




    [​IMG]

    Vegetarian Burrito - fajita style vegetables plus refried beans and cheese, wrapped in a flour tortilla and topped with a traditional guajillo sauce



    Linda said, "Today I stopped off at Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante in Frontierland (thanks to Brenda/emmysmommy for the tip! :thumbsup2). This was just fantastic, there was just the right amount of a spicy kick to it but there was enough food to feed a family and I couldn't even manage half of it. What I love about the counter service restaurants at Disneyland is that you get a proper plate and silverware and the setting of this restaurant is just gorgeous! ::yes::

    See bottom of Post for INDEX to the Disneyland Updates.



    Then Linda sent us a couple of beverage updates.


    From Disney's California Adventure Park...


    [​IMG]

    Frankenweenie Screaming Lemonade


    Linda said, "It may look like a pint of Guinness but it was a delicious lemon refreshing drink.
    Think lemonade mixed with a cream soda topping." ;)





    And this from Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel...


    [​IMG]

    Shipwreck on the Rocks -Bourbon with Freshly Muddled Lemon and Mint with Organic Agave Nectar.
    Have too many of these and you'll be setting a course for Davy Jones' Locker! :rotfl2:




    Linda said, "I have my own bar stool in this place now! :lmao: My latest choice is called the Shipwreck and when ordered it causes a wonderful little special effects show in the bar. What can I say apart from "shiver me timbers ...this was good!!" :thumbsup2




    Then one last update from Linda said...


    "I'm at the airport now waiting for my flight back to London. I have fallen totally in love with Disneyland and really hope to be back one day. The food has been really excellent, both counter service and sit down restaurants have really impressed me. It was a yummy trip and I need to get back down the gym next week for sure! And so...that's all folks. Talk to you soon!" :wave:



    So let's give it up for Linda, our first Disneyland Live Reporter!!! :cheer2:

    chocolateMinnie sent us these two pics from that meal...

    Salad Plate




    [​IMG]

    Raspberry Cake



    chocolateMinnie said, "Crystal Palace is an annual occurrence since our first trip in 2003. DS insists on the visit despite his age." ;)

    So I think I've finally finished my tweaking of the November Scavenger Hunt. Maybe? :lmao: Our two reporters that are currently at WDW, chocolateMinnie and one2admire, have already started scoring some points. I've also awarded emmebear points for her recent stint as a live reporter, since she will also be taking another weekend trip to Disney World in November. I will keep the Scavenger Hunt list updated in Post 634 and I've included the link to the list in my signature to make it easier to access.


    So Good Luck to all our November Live Reporters!!!:cheer2:


    And it is not too late to join our November Reporting team. So if you going to Disney World in November and would like to get in on the Scavenger Hunt fun, just let me know. :thumbsup2


    I have three updates to post now so stay tuned. ;)

    That's where my DS went, Trader Joes. He called and said no food to be found, pizza it is. He's happy, he's on co-op with days off and pizza and x-box. Life is good for him. But he's regretting telling me he didn't need food from home. He now wants me to stock the freezer with home cooked food.

    So happy you made to know your mom was okay through this and that you were safe. I am very grateful to be in great condition considering our neighboring towns.

    Is it sad I was thrilled through it all to not lose electricity so I could wait the storm out on the DIS reading these great threads? I love this thread. It's a great escape from reality but also filled with so much information. Thank you for keeping it going!

    Thanks for posting with a real life update, Sweet Spot. I was just watching a TV program showing some of the devastation that Sandy has wreaked upon the Northeast. So now I'm wondering about all of the many Northeasterners who post here on Dining Review boards. I hope you are all safe and sound. :worried: Please post here with a real life update and let us know you are okay.
