Walt Disney World-More Food

I was feeling a little "blue" today after the Sugar Bowl loss last night.  (Ready for next season to start; I miss Razorback football already.)  But, looking at this food made me feel a little better.

We had our Christmas dinner at The Hollywood Brown Derby in the Hollywood Studios Park.  This was the most disappointing meal of our trip, but there were still a few highlights.

The Original Cobb Salad
Mom's turkey dinner
Filet and Truffle Mashed Potatoes-the potatoes were good, the steak not so much.
Grapefruit Cake
Chocolate Three Ways
Double Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee
One evening we were relaxing at our resort, Old Key West, and had dinner at the restaurant there, Olivia's Cafe.  It was probably the biggest surprise we had.  It was surprisingly good and the seafood was really fresh!!  I forgot to take any pictures of the meal, but here are our appetizer and dessert, the really good stuff.

Conch Fritters-they are really good.

Key Lime Tart-a little taste of heaven.
The closer we got to the end of our trip, the more I forgot to take pictures of our food.  I was just getting tired.  We ate a very good mean at Wolfgang Puck Cafe in Downtown Disney.  I have always wanted to try his food and it didn't disappoint.

Macadamia Nut Crusted Chicken and Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Pepperoni Pizza with different kinds of pepperoni

Pumpkin Ravioli-this was incredibly delicious
Our last big meal and another one of our favorites was at the Canada Pavilion in EPCOT.  Le Cellier Steakhouse was so completely terrific, as always.  We have eaten there several times and it never disappoints.

Mushroom Filet Mignon with Wild Mushroom Risotto & Truffle-Herb Butter Sauce 
Salt Crusted Prime Rib with Roasted Yukon Potatoes

New York Strip Steak with Gruyere Yukon Gold Potato Gratin

Campfire S'mores

Maple Creme Brulee-yes, we really like creme brulee

Chocolate-on-Chocolate Whiskey Cake
As you can see, we ate very well and ate a lot on our trip.  But, at least we walked a lot too.  That helped prevent any major weight gain.  The food was amazing and is always one of the highlights of the trip.  I hope to have more pictures from our trip up soon.
