    Then yesterday afternoon, Becky sent this snack update from the ASMU Resort's...


    Intermission Food Court



    Becky said, "Ok, Disney really IS trying to kill us. I told Charlie I was dying for some fruit, so we went to the food court and I got an orange for now and banana for later. This is TWO snack credits according to Disney."




    [​IMG]

    TWO Snack Credits worth of Snacks





    "And, just because he CAN, Charlie saw this on the menu and got it for ONE snack credit. That just isn't right. :confused3 And btw, they smell repulsive!" :crazy2:


    [​IMG]

    For ONE Snack Credit: Chili Cheese Fries

    Next up is an update sent yesterday by Lauren (Giselle22).


    She and her group were at Downtown Disney on Thursday night and had dinner at...



    RAGLAN ROAD



    Lauren said, "We had canceled our Raglan Road reservation on Monday, but my brother still really wanted to try it, so we went for dinner last night."





    [​IMG]

    League of Nations - Magners Cider | Warsteiner | Blue Moon | Newcastle


    "I had the League of Nations beer flight. The pilsner from Germany (don't remember the name) was my least favorite, but I still managed to drink it all." ;)





    [​IMG]


    "We were sitting off in one of the alcoves without a good view of the stage, but the dancers brought a small platform around and did a quick performance where we could see them too. Just a note, I think they only do this before the band comes out--once the band is playing, they seem to dance exclusively in the middle area."





    [​IMG]


    "The waiter brought soda bread, which is yummy and moist and very tasty with the oil dip they give you."





    [​IMG]

    Pie in the Sky
    Reach new heights with our chicken & wild mushroom pie served with a (non -NASA) rocket lettuce



    "I ordered the pie in the sky. Delicious! At the very bottom there is a layer of mashed potatoes, then the chicken and mushrooms. Lots of big chunks of chicken."







    [​IMG]

    Keen eye for the ShepherdÂ’s Pie
    We give the traditional ShepherdÂ’s Pie a little makeover with our contemporary twist to this favorite dish



    "My brother had the shepherd's pie. Other brother kindly pointed out that it looked like canned cat food, but it was reportedly very tasty and not at all like pet food." ;)






    [​IMG]

    Hail Caesar
    Classic Caesar salad with prosciutto crisps, grape tomatoes, croutons & shaved parmesan



    "Mom got a caesar salad. She asked for just a little dressing and they did it perfectly." :)





    [​IMG]

    Fish & Chips
    Our famous beer battered fish n chips served with our fresh tartar sauce



    "Dad had fish and chips, which he enjoyed."





    [​IMG]

    Banger & Booz
    Guinness & onion bangers on mash, topped with caramelized onions & beef stew.



    "Other brother had bangers and booz. He mostly liked it, but noted that the sausages are a bit spicy."





    [​IMG]

    Bakewell Beauty
    Deep dish bakewell pear tart with almond frangipane served with vanilla bean ice-cream and sweet anglaise.



    "For dessert we all shared a Bakewell Beauty pear tart. This was good, but nothing that will make our "must eat again" list."

    Barb, I love your report from your family dinner out last night! What a fun drink menu. I love that your husband likes to embarrass the kids like that. Not only did your drink look great, but as the wife of a man named "Chuck", i really appreciated the name! Too funny! :rotfl:

    Next we have Susan's (jecskc) daily update.


    Saturday, January 19, 2013


    Susan said, "For lunch today we were feeling like Mexican again, so we went back to..."


    La Cantina de San Angel




    "The kids split the plain nachos..."



    [​IMG]





    "DH had the beef tacos..."


    [​IMG]





    "And I had the loaded nachos..."


    [​IMG]





    "We all got churros for dessert again..."


    "Again, we were all very happy with our food here." :thumbsup2





    "Then for dinner, we ate at..."


    Mama Melrose



    "For starters, DH and I had some wine..."


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    "I got a Pinot Grigio and DH got a Chianti."





    "Our waiter brought us some bread."


    [​IMG]


    "This was your typical hard sourdough rolls. They were steaming hot and were very good with the pepper and oil they had for dipping."




    "DH and I shared the calamari..."


    [​IMG]


    "These were pretty tasty. I have had better, but these had a lot of flavor and spice and we enjoyed them."





    "For dinner DH and I split the Chicken Campanelle..."


    [​IMG]


    "It came out already split for us. DH enjoyed this more than I did. I liked it, but I found it to be very heavy and I could only manage half of my half. DH finished the rest."





    "DD ordered the four cheese flat bread..."


    [​IMG]


    "She really liked this and ate almost all of it. Thumbs up from the pickiest child alive." :thumbsup2





    "DS ordered the steak and macaroni..."


    [​IMG]


    "He said it tasted OK and he really liked the macaroni. But DH and I found this be a very poor cut of meat. It was very difficult to cut and there seemed to be a lot of gristle and fat."




    "For dessert, DH and I shared the Amaretto Cheesecake..."


    [​IMG]


    "Both of us really liked this. It was good and creamy and had a nice amaretto flavor."




    "The kids just got vanilla gelato..."


    [​IMG]


    "Which they both liked. Cant go wrong there."


    "Overall, this restaurant was a mixed bag. Our service was very kind and efficient and we liked him very much. The chef came out to talk to us because DD has a peanut allergy and I noticed a lot of things with nuts on the menu. He was very nice and upbeat. He said the things that DD had already picked out to order would be fine. So service was good. The food was OK. There were some things we really liked, but other things didnt measure up. I am not sure we would go back here again with so many other options to choose from."
