    Then Amanda sent us an update from her dinner last night at Disneyland's...


    [​IMG]





    Here is what Amanda had...


    [​IMG]

    Vegetarian Gumbo - Served in a sourdough bread bowl


    "The meal hit the spot! Wonderful spices with nice chunks of vegetables like okra and tomato. The only thing is the portion is deceptively small. Looks like you are getting a lot but not really because it's mostly bread."




    And then last Amanda sent us this snack udate from Disneyland's...


    Penny Arcade



    [​IMG]



    "I picked up some homemade candy from the Penny Arcade on Main Street to take home. This stuff is amazing and so fresh! You can watch CM's making candy throughout the day. Wish they had this in WDW too." ;)
