TeaThyme's 2nd Birthday!
It seems like yesterday that I was celebrating TeaThymes' 1st Birthday and today marks it's 2nd Birthday in the bloggiversary universe!
So things have been well - if you haven't noticed as of late there hasn't been much posts from me and definitely a lack of Aussie reviews as I'm still living overseas in the USA for the remainder of the year. I have plenty of travel stories and foodie posts to share to you all but haven't had much time to sit back and edit pictures and write them all up as yet.
This week I visited Epcot in Walt Disney World to 'taste my way around the world' at the fabulous Food & Wine Festival (28th September - 12th November) showcasing different countries with a selection of food and drinks that are meant to represent what their cuisine is like back in their country. I've tried most of what's on offer but haven't gone and taken some foodie snapshots of each country as yet!
On our way to our delightful eating adventure we stumbled upon some Cast Members that were harvesting fresh cranberries in a large vessel of water in the middle of one of Epcot's major walkways that divides the future world and their world showcase. Each Cast Member wore boots up to their knees, overalls and held onto rakes to cultivate the cranberries that would float on top. This was such a pretty sight to see and educational as well!
There's also another birthday to celebrate! Miss Naughty's birthday is this week so we ventured off toward the Grand Floridian Resort to have a late lunch over at their Grand Floridian Cafe.
Miss Naughty and Miss Giggles each order a comforting Chicken and Noodle soup as an entree to begin with. A chunky soup full of noodle pieces, hot chicken broth and vegetables all diced up. The girls tell me the chicken was breaded and really flavourful yet it needed a little more taste in it's soup base.
Our mains were the Orecchiette Pasta of the Day which was pasta shells tossed in a creamy cheese sauce with grilled chicken pieces. The portion was so huge that Miss Naughty could barely complete the dish in the end but it was a pretty good meal!
Miss Giggles chose the Grand Sandwich; an open-faced hot ham, turkey, bacon and tomato with a rich Boursin cheese sauce and fried onion straws. I could recall her saying that the sandwich was good - there was alot of meats inside the sandwich and the onion straws added an extra crunch.
For me I went for their Ceasar Salad since I wanted something simple and light that day. Fresh romaine lettuce tossed with a smooth, creamy dressing and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese along with grilled
chicken on top.
So let's blow out the imaginary candle for TeaThymes this year! Hopefully I'll get to give this beloved blog a little more attention as the time rolls by :)
