Welp.... this is going to be pretty quick since you two wanna know what I had... and ill do the menu and place for tomorrow here in a bit after I get done uploading photo's to Facebook... lol

I forgot to take pictures of what I chose, because in all honesty... it was pretty hard. Especially since they give you the noodles and such first and you start eating that... then after you get halfway done they give you what you ordered. So in all of that... Jess informed me I forgot to take pictures when I got half my dessert finished... lol

So........

What

Did

I

Choose

??????????????

Went with the Filet Mignon and dessert... went with the chocolate ice cream. LOL... so you both won. Reason I didn't do the apple was because the dessert is part of the dinning plan. Plus by the time we got out... we were running for the busses so we could get on before the fireworks... lol

So there ya go!

Scrappy won for supper.... and man was that steak just wonderful! And Jeff.... dessert!

Hoping for more suggestions tomorrow.... MUCH bigger menu!

I know what Jeff likes, so Bella and Scrappy.... just let me know if you have any preferences, or just want me to pick something out for you guys... that would be great!

Damn, Congrats, scrappy sarcastic Haha. Now that I think about it, the idea of a filet makes my mouth water....yum!!

Well, I have a great streak going with desserts! Ha!

Mama Melrose - I'm going with the chicken parm for dinner - classic Italian! And I've had it before there and thought it was super good!

Dessert's a tough one here - the cannoli cake or the cheesecake. Puzzled The cannoli cake sounds really good except for that red wine sauce, but I love love love cheesecake! I think I would go with the cheesecake.

And I'm with you - tuna = yuck Even he smell makes me gag laugh

And glad you had a great pin trading day! That's always fun!

Thanks for the ongoing updates yay

Wow, there is a lot on that menu. I had to think about this one for a while.
For dinner you should have the Chicken Campanelle
For dessert the Chocolate Cannoli Cake
I have to admit my first choice for diner would have been the charred steak but you had steak last night. Of course that would not stop me from ordering it again!

FYI. It wouldn't stop me either so do you wanna switch? I'm the type who could eat steak every day of the week! Lol

Well then, since you would eat steak again I do change my selection for you.
Dinner would have to be the Charred Steak. Everything about that meal sounds delish. I mean 5 cheese mac and cheese, and I love anything with balsamic on it as well as the wine on it.
I will stick with the Chocolate Cannoli Cake for your dessert though.

Mase, are you thinking Tuna as in tuna fish sandwich/tuna salad type stuff with mayo? That tuna is nothing at all like that. The Tuna I hava had at WDW is the best I ever had, just to make that point. It is all sushi grade Tuna. I would definatly go with that and the Mama's Panna Cotta for dessert.

Hey Mase, I second what Mr. Hub said. The tuna in WDW is out of this world. Sorry I didn't see the part about you not liking tuna when I put in my two cents. Looks like I'm not going to win this round. Whoops!

LOL

You guys crack me up...

So... here it is!

Went with the steak! That 5 cheese pasta was AMAZING!!!!!


And that steak was FANTASTIC! Didn't even need a steak knife to cut into it... just a regular knife did the trick. Wish it was a bit more rare, but when I do order rare, I always say "As rare as your allowed to cook it." LOL


Thank you Scrappy! Jeff... you were very close. I almost chose yours just because I haven't taken a suggestion for dinner for you yet... lol

And.... for dessert...?

DRUM ROLL!!!!!!

...........

.....

..

.



Kris wins with the canoli! I think you forgot you gave a dessert as well with the Tuna... lol! The dessert was VERY good. Loved the raspberry sauce or whatever that was.... too lazy to scroll up and see exactly what was on the plate. But man.... that dark red stuff soaked into the chocolate was amazing!

So Kris.... pin ideas? Let me know! Been scavenging the parks for unique pins for people who help me choose my dinner, and this is my way for showing my appreciation and a way that we can share a bit of our Disney Adventure with you guys here on the board.

Will post tomorrow's ADR here in a bit.

Alright... again I can do steak multiple nights. I love it. So don't be afraid to hit it up... maybe it is also a hint at what I may prefer? Don't know?

Now... this can be different. Jess and I will have the night to ourselves afterwards. I will give bonus points on who can come up with the coolest thing to do after dinner. Whether its staying on the boardwalk, or hitting another park... doesn't matter. Also... no matter what I will get dessert off that menu because I can't let it go to waist.... BUT.... if you know of a BETTER dessert that her and I can go get....? That can be cool too.... again... ANYWHERE! So this night has the potential of being a HUGE payout. Just because you have one once... doesn't mean it stops there. Im keeping a tally of every one. So yeah... there ya go! This is a HUGE one tonight... and don't forget about Boma for Friday!

First of all, that meal looked delish. That mac & cheese looks amazing!
So for tonight I think you should go with the New York Strip Steak for dinner and the Turtle Cheesecake for dessert. Will be back with plans for your night out a little later. Have to give that one some thought.

Stone-ground Mustard-rubbed New York Strip Herb-roasted Fingerling Potatoes, seasonal Vegetables, Spiced Veal Jus,
and Cipollini Onions sounds amazing!!

For dessert I'd try the Blueberry-Cherry Pie with Lemon Gelato, because it sounds like a burst of great flavors!

I love taking the Epcot boat loop at night, it's just so beautiful after dark. Maybe stop over on the Boardwalk at the Bakery or confectionary for more sweets.

This was a tough one because there are just so many wonderful things you could do. So after giving it a lot of thought I came up with....
Take a bus over to DTD. It can be so different without children. The first thing you should do there would be go over and see if the balloon is going up. That would be a wonderful start to your evening. I can just imagine that view at night. Then just take the time and stroll around taking in all the sites, sounds, and smells of the place. I am sure with young children you two do not have much time to just enjoy each others company. Walk around holding hands, sit and people watch. Really just enjoy each other and of course the beauty of where you are. And of course end your evening with something really yummy! Lots of places there to find the perfect treat to end your day.
Whatever you do, I hope you have a Magical Evening. Sorry could not resist that.
