Dining like a Princess

By far the most fun I've had with my food this summer was all the delightful offerings on the Alaskan cruise we just went on. We did formal dining for the majority of our meals because it is easier for me with my food allergy. But who doesn't love a five course breakfast, right?

Here we are in the International Dining Room before dinner one evening.

Here is Bryan humoring me by posing with one of his favorite desserts - the Love Boat Dream.

They made me pretty non-dairy desserts too.

They also had a fruit carving demonstration, which was entertaining:

And a cooking show, with more beautiful food carvings:

Our waitor, Ramil, was in the cooking show. That's him on the left.

We enjoyed our dining experience and waitstaff so much, we got a group picture with them at the conclusion of our cruise.

For all my fellow foodies out there... save your money and go on a cruise. The food alone is well worth it!

Bacon-y Reprise

This year for fourth of July the Bacon Explosions were back by popular demand. They were so popular last year, in fact, that we made four this year! If you haven't tried this yet, I highly reccommend it. See here for step by step instructions.
