Unlike yesterday’s post, this post is all about fun and experiencing the foods of the place you’re visiting!
I very rarely eat “fast food”. Sometimes when I travel I eat foods that I’m not use to, then I don’t feel so great. You know what I mean. You get that heavy, bloated feeling. It’s easy to find the fun stuff like pizza, churros or popcorn (see my upcoming post about that! LoL), but it’s not as fun as it use to be. I usually bring some food with me when I travel. Such as trail mix, instant oatmeal, protein bars,etc, but those aren’t meals. I like to have a least one real meal per day. When I took my niece to Disneyland a few weeks ago, she really liked to have 3 meals a day, LoL! I don’t like to eat that much, but this trip was about her, so we ate 3 square meals every day.
Look at this beautiful salad! That was my dinner. Complete with craisons, nuts and golden California raisins, my tummy was so happy! The dressing was a simple vinaigrette. Jessica chose a pesto and cheese filled ravioli, topped with pine nuts, tomatoes and a bit of Parmesan! Of course I had to try one 😉 I stay away from pastas and cheeses, but this was a relatively “healthier” alternative to say, nacho’s or something.
You may have to search a bit to find healthier types of food, but it’s out there 🙂
Horrible picture of me, but I love Cochran, so I wanted to post this! I ran into him at California Adventure, part of the Disneyland resort. Jonathan Cochran was a contestant on the show Survivor. In January, 2013, Cochran graduated from Harvard Law School. A week after his win (1 million dollars), Cochran announced he has moved to Los Angeles to be a co-writer for a new sitcom, The Millers. It aired September 2013. The executive producer of Survivor took this picture of the two of us 🙂
I will be blogging a few things from my recent trip down south to Disneyland. These candied apples are works of art! You can watch them being made, truly amazing. And the taste? Crisp green apple with a variety of chocolates. The mouse ears are made out of marshmallow. I bought a Minnie Mouse and the “Apple Pie” apples. I think for under $10.00, these are well worth the price.
I saw these originals at the Disney Family Museum in San Francisco today. Amazing history.
If you are ever in San Francisco and are a Disney fan, this is a must for you! You can see some of the Oscars displayed in the museum, tons of family pictures, touching story’s about his life, some of the first sketches of Mickey Mouse, and more! They have a lovely café inside the museum. They have a couple vegetarian options 🙂 A trip to the fantastic gift shop is a perfect end to an amazing journey through Walter Elias Disney’s life.
I have been coming to Disneyland since I was 3 years old. It’s a one hour flight, I’m lucky to so close 🙂
It’s difficult taking a disabled child to Disneyland, especially since they still make you wait in line, regardless of the fact that my son is cognitive disabled (retarded). Really, you think you are going to cut in line in front of me and my son!?! Mistake number one!!! I probably fought off close to 10 people cutting in front of me, at the airport too. DO NOT MESS WITH THIS MOTHER BEAR!! I promise you, you will regret it. What is wrong with people?
I didn’t want Johnny to catch wind of any problems. My parents and I stayed happy and smiling regardless. Of course there’s the exception, we met a couple of very compassionate individuals and several nice families.
Overall, it’s been a great trip. Everyone, especially children, should experience Disney at least once! Paris, Orlando, Tokyo, Hong Kong…..do it! If you have any Disney questions, I am very happy to answer!!
Flying home tomorrow morning. I promise to get back to my regular postings tomorrow evening 🙂
Life is good, go to DISNEYLAND
