16 Days!!!!!



I can't believe I am only 16 days away from my trip! I'm getting so excited! The other wonderful thing is that my work is INSANELY busy right now so the days are flying by

I am checking the weather, the CAN/USD exchange rate and the status of Southwest flights from Buffalo to Orlando daily! The rain in the extended forecast isn't freaking me out too much. It IS Florida afterall. I'm used to Aug when you get daily rain. I think they are just being cautious (as I find weather forecasters often are) figuring if they predict rain and then it DOESN'T rain they look like heroes

I must admit, I am happy to hear crowd reports of 5's or 6's rather than the 8's and 9's UG has listed for practically the WHOLE summer. That is just lazy IMO. All weekdays as 8 and all weekends as 9. Yea, that takes a rocket scientist to predict.

I swear I'll update with some new pictures tonight Thank you all for sticking with me. I can't believe I've had over 6000 views and I haven't shown you guys any *new* pics yet! You are all the BEST

Thurs - breakfast at CBR
lunch at HS (ick)
dinner at Cali Grill

Friday - breakfast at CBR or Main Street Bakery
lunch at MK
dinner at Tonys

Saturday - breakfast at CBR
lunch at Tangierine Cafe
dinner at San Angel Inn

Sunday - breakfast at Boma - although I am trying to get into TH instead
lunch at Flame Tree BBQ

I cannot wait to read your reviews and drool all over the pictures!

We're staying at AKL 9/30-10/4 and then moving to POP 10/4-10/12 because we're having a Grand Gathering and this is where everyone else is staying. However I keep going over it all in my mind and I'm thinking I want to just stay at AKL for the whole trip. But then we'd miss out on the late night swims w/ the family.

FAVORITE FOOD PICS: Oct 2008 Part 2


Wolfgang Puck Express




My artistic shot!


Our drinks - 2 corona and 1 cherry coke


Awesome herbed fries!


Chinois Chicken Salad - Most crave-able salad in the world!


Side of Mac & Cheese


MORE Wolfgang Puck Express


Interior


BBQ Chicken Quesadilla


Margharita Pizza


Panko breaded crispy chicken



Creme Brulee

JIKO


Wine list


Place setting


Cheese plate
I can't remember the cheeses exactly but here goes.
BOTTOM to TOP
- creamy cow's milk cheese, like a firmer fruitier brie from France
- firm sheep milk cheese from Italy
- manchego from Spain
- crumby salty cheese (like parmesan only stronger) from Italy
- sweet and soft goat cheese from Canada (Quebec)
These change nightly/weekly from my understanding


Ostrich filet - sorry the flash makes it look very rare. Was actually medium to medium rare. Served atop creamed sweet potatoes. So yummy!


Kenyan Coffee BBQ Chicken Flatbread served with apples and onions


Filet with red wine reduction and mac & cheese


Lamb tenderloin (also appears more rare from flash) with berbere spiced lentils and carrots


Two breads, I think honey wheat and flax something, with tandoori butter


Meyer lemon curd with blueberry pomegranate compote, sour cream ice cream and biscotti


The Cooking place


The Sunset Wall
