I told you I would be concentrating on some food photos today - that is a HUGE part of cruising. OH MY the FOOD!!!! This is Drum Fish I think...I also had WaHoo (I'm sure I spelled that right) - they were both very good! I had alot of fun trying new food - I even had frog legs!!! And YES - they taste just like chicken - REALLY! I also had the opportunity to try caviar - but just couldn't bring myself to do it - EEK!
Isn't this pretty? It's so little - they really needed to give me two of them....growing girls need their sugar!
This is the butter for our rolls - everything is sooooo fancy. I'm happy to report to my native Wisconsinites - this is GRASSLAND Butter too!!!!
I was honored to have dinner with Rich Jutkins, the president of Stampin' Up! and his wife Wendi, as well as another demonstrator and her friend (and dang it if I can't remember their names - I know - again SHOCKING!). We ate in the SS United States restaurant - this is a special French dining room on the ship where you can make reservations for a very elegant meal.
Before our dinner, we were treated to a tour of the BRIDGE - this is where they drive the ship!!!
Here's Steve and I with the captain...and as you can see - I'm mapping out our next leg of the journey! Now there's a scary thought!!! Steve came up with some really good ideas to make our cruising experience a little more of an adventure....he told the captain that he ought to make a couple emergency stops and do a couple donuts!!!!! I almost peed my pants laughing!!!! His reasoning made alot of sense to me...."there's no chance of hitting anything!!!!"
Here are a couple of the appetizers - I'd rather call them that, than hor'odevors because I don't know for sure how to spell that! Aren't they fancy???
I'm not sure what this is - but it took alot of work to make it...
This was my meal - steak and lobster. Those french are known for their small portions - I could have used two lobster tails...it was delicious!
My new demo friend (the one I can't remember her name) had this dish. It's venison - how beautiful! I asked the waitress where that venison came from and it was NOT Wisconsin deer. New Zealand Red Deer.
And now for dessert...how gorgeous is this? Steve thoroughly enjoyed it...
But I topped him!!!! Check this one out??? It was a sampling of all the desserts on the menu! Remember that comment about "the diet?" YEA
We received this little plate every afternoon in our stateroom. Today it included caviar - and I just couldn't bring myself to try it - fish eggs - gross!
Here's a funny photo - well not really that funny when you know why Hailey is sooooo sad. She was one number away from winning the Blackout Bingo game on our last day...the caller called 6 more numbers as she waited with that last number. Here's the really sad part....the winner won $1400!!!!! Boo!!!!
And now for a couple cards...this is suppose to be about stamping...right? Perfect for all the men in your life!!!
Thanks for stopping by....
