More Disneyland California Food and Wine 2017 this week.
First we had the French Onion Mac and Cheese. It was on the sweeter side for Mac and Cheese because of the caramelized onions and the dish was very light as a result.
Then we tried the Black Garlic and Soy-Braised Pork Belly Bao. I’m not a huge fan of pickled vegetables so I brushed most of them off. The pork was tender and the bao was soft. I feel like if you have the full amount of pickled vegetables the dish would be a little too sour though.
Lastly, we had the Dole Pineapple Strawberry Float with strawberry popping boba. I was so happy to watch them put two huge scoops of ice cream in my cup before topping it with the pineapple juice. The boba was surprisingly good. The strawberry taste in the boba was refreshing and didn’t taste fake like I thought it might have been. It was a really satisfying drink.
On a somewhat unrelated note, we visited the Red Rose Tavern in Fantasyland, Disneyland. AND WE TRIED THE GREY STUFF! And it was delicious!
The Grey Stuff is actually a red velvet cake with a raspberry center covered on white chocolate mousse, all on a shortbread cookie base. Initially, I thought that it might be a little too sweet, but the sweetness level was just right! And I really loved the combination of the shortbread cookie with the white chocolate mousse. The cake in the middle was just ok. But overall the dessert is really delicious!
I’m coming up on getting my wisdom teeth removed this week. So I’m looking at lots of recipes for soft foods for the upcoming week.
I found this Homemade Applesauce recipe from The Pioneer Woman.
Another recipe I want to try out soon is for this Seaweed Soup with beef from my favorite Korean food blogger Maangchi!
This article by Nourished Kitchen about Bone Broth was really interesting and useful too.
Thanks for reading!
Have a great week!
