A slight obsession with books

Reading and Fibrecrafts

Can’t wait to do this!


One of my favourite things to do at Disney is wander round Epcot during the Food and Wine festival. We haven't timed it right to be there since 2004 so we're really excited to be there at the right time this year. I've been looking at the menus for the various pavillions and my mouth has been watering at just the thought of all the lovely food we'll be sampling so I thought I'd share it with you. It's a really long menu so I've edited out the drinks and just included the yummy appetisers, entrees and desserts.

Roasted Corn and Cheese Empanada – sounds good

Grilled Beef Skewer with Chimichurri Sauce and Boniato Purée – no idea what Chimichurri Sauce is but there's one way to find out

Black Pepper Shrimp with Sichuan Noodles – and yet more shrimp, oh happy day

Bison Chili with Wild Mushrooms, Cabernet, and Pepper Jack Cheese – can't say that I've ever eaten Bison before

Heirloom Tomatoes with Oregon Blue Cheese, Red Onions, and Basil - this sounds much safer. On the other hand, who wants to play safe?

I'm thinking it's a really good job that we're staying at The Beach Club Villas again so we're nice and handy for the festival for half of our stay. I'm also thinking it's a good job I haven't made any dinner reservations as we're going to be so stuffed from eating our way around the world that we won't want to eat out. To be honest, I'd rather snack on these mini meals any day. Strolling round in the sun, an appetiser in this country, an entree in that one. Then desserts in several more. Stephen can have a beer or two. Or three. Preferably not just before going on Test Track though. Utter bliss. I really can't wait!

  1. October. We’ll be there for Halloween so that’ll be great fun too 😀
    And yes, it’s a good job we do a lot of walking while we’re there otherwise all that food could have a serious effect on my waistline.


  2. When are you going Carole? I put on a stone just reading all those menus ha ha. X


  3. Of course, and we’ll have internet access while we’re there, so I can post my ‘munch round the world’ progress as we go.


  4. ooh this sounds fabulous – hope you’re going to take lots of photos.


  5. Oh I definitely like the sound of the Chimichurri.
    I’m not so apprehensive about the Bison now either. I quite like chilli so hopefully there’ll be time to sample that too.
    Thanks for that Stacey 🙂


  6. Oh that all sounds so good. Chimichurri is excellent, garlicy & herby. We make it for grilling steaks. Bison tastes like beef only extra beefy with a bit of something extra. Its good, a bit rich. depending on the flavor of the chili, you might not notice any difference from beef. We have a bison farm about 12 miles away & every now & then buy ground bison for burgers. I think France & New Zealand’s menus have the most appeal to me
