    I love the Kouzzina update! It's awesome that DisneyMamato4's oldest DD loved those short ribs so much - that dish sounds great.

    We haven't had dinner at Kouzzina in almost four years (it was the night Kouzzina opened!). I remember loving the fisherman's stew, so I'm glad it's still available. Also, the Ouzo-tini sounds really good. :thumbsup2

    Our last two updates received yesterday were from Kerri (wdwpirates).
    The first one is from their lunch at the Boardwalk's...


    [​IMG]


    Kerri said, "We popped into a late lunch at ESPN. Jimmy likes it there although he said and I quote "Man there are just way too many TVs to watch"! His head was moving so fast!" :lmao:


    [​IMG]





    "The menu is quite a bit different than what's on AllEarsNet so I've included menu pics."

    Macho Nachos For Two - Crispy Corn Tortilla Chips topped with Chili, Cheddar Sauce, Pico de Gallo, Sour Cream, and Jalapenos

    "We just ordered some apps. We went with the Nachos for two....which for some reason they did split into 2 separate plates. They were very good. I would have liked it if the cheese were real as opposed to the orange gooey stuff. The pork is very tasty! The tortilla chips were Tostitos out of a bag. Blah."




    [​IMG]

    ESPN Dingers - Chicken Breast Nuggets tossed in Medium, Hot, Flame, Teriyaki, or Barbecue Sauce served with Celery and Ranch and Blue Cheese Dressings


    "We also went with an order of the ESPN Dingers....half BBQ and half Teriyaki. We both preferred the Teriyaki...the BBQ was almost too sweet. There's BBQ sauce on the nachos but I think the lettuce, tomato etc. cut the sweetness. The Dingers (hilarious name) came with 2 sauces, ranch and blue cheese. I liked the blue cheese the best! Very tasty with the Teriyaki which surprised me!"





    [​IMG]


    "Jim also wanted to try the Sideline Fries. They were average fries served in a cone in a contraption that resembled a basketball hoop. Sauces came along with it and were BBQ, honey mustard and ranch."



    "All in all they were tasty snacks. I wouldn't go back unless there was really a specific game or race we wanted to see."


    And last we have a pic of our live reporter, Kerri...

    Our First Update of the Day was sent to us this morning by Paula (smile4stamps) and sadly it is the final one for her trip. :sad:


    Last night she went to Magic Kingdom for Extra Magic Hours and she had a few snacks.



    The first one was from...


    Sleepy Hollow



    Paula said, "I had a few last treats at the MK last night. First was the Nutella & Fruit Waffle again! I couldn't resist! It was about 12:15 am! I got it and then took it into the Peter Pan line! They were like, you need to finish it before you board! I said, no worries! I will!" ::yes::


    [​IMG]


    "The waffle was good but not as good as the first time. I don't think the waffle itself was made to order. This one had blueberries though and my first did not!"





    The next snack update was from...


    [​IMG]

    "Then on my way out I had to get some fries with fake cheese sauce!"




    And then this morning at the airport, Paula had breakfast from Chick-fil-A...


    [​IMG]

    Looks like A Chicken Biscuit & Hash Browns?

    I don't understand anything being said in this conversation, but if anyone has seen SNL this year, they have a recurring sketch called The Californians...and this exchange SO reminded me of that. :lmao:

    Oh my god, I love you. This made me laugh and squeal and wave my arms around like a crazy person. And it was impossible to read without hearing it exactly in their voices! :lmao: :lmao:

    I'm happy that we both get so much enjoyment from those sketches! Even better, I saw one of the dress rehearsals for it on YouTube, and Kristen Wigg, Bill Hader, and Fred Armison all started cracking up during it (search for "The Californians" on YouTube - it's the one uploaded by Stefonvids ;))

    Some people don't enjoy The Californians, but I'm a huge fan and often rewatch them when looking for a laugh. :thumbsup2

    Seriously, it's such a funny sketch. The accents may be exaggerated, but the sketch always makes me smile (largely because of the accents, but also due to some other SoCal references and the overall soap opera vibe). :goodvibes

    "When you pass the Zankou Chicken on the left, turn right. Take Venice and follow it all the way down. Then you're in Marina del Rey." Non-stop car talk :laughing:
