Oh snap, I’m back.
Thanks for not forgetting about me last week. I decided last-minute to join my family on a trip to Disney World, so I was gone without a moment’s notice.

Temperature-wise, it’s still in the 30s here in Boston and it’s almost APRIL. APRIL. Can you blame a girl for needing to run away for some sun? I thought not.
I spent four beautiful days in sunny Orlando, relaxing, swimming and cuddling up to my family. Bliss. We also managed to have some delicious meals and drinks (oh, and visit that theme park that’s there too).
On our first night, we had a fun and delicious dinner in Downtown Disney at Fulton’s Crab House.
Loved the Bisque, it was velvety without being creamy, just a rich lobster and crab flavor. Yum! I LOVED the Crab Cakes, just big, beautiful hunks of seasoned crab and very little crumb, just the way I like them. I loved the little pickled cucumber salad on the side as well.
Then it was on to the main event….
The next day, we sunscreened up and headed to Epcot for some around-the-world fun in the Epcot countries.
We had lunch at the Biergarten . A German-style beer hall…..
The restaurant only served a buffet, so I tried a bit of a few different things (ironically, I don’t like sausages, which were the most popular menu items).
(Clockwise: Macaroni salad with radishes and peas, Green Salad with Shaved beets, Dilled Salmon, Spaetzle (a german pasta), Apricot and Apple chutneys and a slice of Pork Loin.).
I tried most things on my plate and loved the salmon! (only I would go to a German restaurant and have salmon). I skipped the dessert buffet and opted for a visit to…
…The Werther’s Caramel Shoppe….my idea of treat heaven.
After a nap and a swim (blissful), we headed over to Downtown Disney for an Italian meal at Portobello.
My mom and I split a salad and a pasta for dinner.
Caesar salad to start:
And Squid Ink Pasta with Shrimp for dinner.
The six of us shared a small Chocolate and small Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream.
The rest of our trip was spent, lounging by the pool and just generally relaxing.
Here’s to you, spontaneous vacation!
I’ll be back with more fun, friends!
