We took a little trip last week, and this is where we went. Any guesses?? If you guessed Disney World, you would be correct. My husband, Scott, had never been to Disney World before, so he got to cross off another item on his bucket list. We spent most of our time in Epcot, which was having their annual Food and Wine Tasting Festival How perfect for two Foodies like us!
In Epcot, all of the countries had samples of their food, and drink, a la small plates, on an international level. Just walking around all of the countries, and smelling all of the wonderful foods cooking, was a treat for the senses. There were also Culinary demonstrations dinners, and samplings with various chefs by reservation only.
From Ireland, we shared a Lobster and Fisherman's Pie, which had pieces of lobster and fish in a creamy sauce, topped with real mashed potatoes and Irish Kerry gold cheese, and Guiness. The pie was so good, and rich. The pie was $6, not a bad price for a small 4" plastic ramekin. Sorry, I didn't get a picture. We ate it before I could snap a picture. My inner foodie was on vacation, too.
From Ireland went to France, where we shared this Coq au vin Sur de Macaroni, Red Wine Braised Chicken, Mushrooms, Pearl Onions, and Macaroni Gratin We got a generous portion of this wonderful dish for only $6, also.
We spent the rest of the time at the resort, where we were staying in Kissimmee. This is a view from our balcony. We were fortunate the Hurricane Sandy didn't come inland in Florida. We are hoping that everyone in the Northeast stays safe!
Now we are home and back to "reality."
