i hope this doesn't make you jealous.

my mom has a job interview in new york, which is awesome because we kind of needs jobs in new york before we can like, sell the house and move back there.  so she's taking a bit of a last minute trip to new york from today until wednesday.  she stays with my dad.  they would have JUST celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary yesterday, if they hadn't gotten divorced 24 years ago. 

i love my family.  on one hand, it's like the worst soap opera EVAH.  on the other hand, it's fucking awesome and we all really care about each other and support each other.

so awesome husband and i woke up early to drive mom to the airport, and since we were out we decided we should go to epcot for some more food and wine fun.  which it was - fun.  we love the epcot food and wine festival.

grilled beef skewer with chimichurri sauce and boniato puree, argentina

kielbasa and potato pierogies with caramelized onions and sour cream, poland

awesome husband with my frozen margarita, mexico

flavors of africa - salad, bread, and spreads, south africa

big bumbly bee in germany

bison chili with wild mushrooms, cabernet, and pepper jack cheese, united states

taste of spain - serrano ham, chorizo, manchego cheese, olives, and tomato bread, spain

canadian cheddar cheese soup and moosehead ale, canada
since we're passholders, we'll go back when it's not as fucking busy/hot and hit up a few other countries.  i still need bunratty meade from ireland, more souvlaki and spanakopita from greece, and a few other tidbits that are too delicious for words.

i also have to point out that after we hit the US of A, we walked towards japan to find a shady spot to sit and eat our bison chili.  i found the ONLY wet bench in all of epcot and had to walk around for an hour or so looking like i pissed my pants.


  1. mmmmm The beef skewer from Argentina was awesome, wasn't it?!!? We HAVE to go back before it ends. Maybe we can get together the next time we are up. :)

  2. Oh my God that post made me hungry. How was the bison chili? Sounds tasty!


  3. @chelsea- yes. it. was. i need to learn how to make chimichurri sauce now.

    @sd- it was really well spiced, but we thought the beans were a bit firm. of course, we're not huge bean fans to begin with.

  4. i almost pooped in my pants at target yesterday. true story.

  5. @tiffany: i have to say i'm not surprised at that. you lead a full life. at least, full of wonderful family craziness.

    i am surprised you didn't blog about it. unless almost pooping in your pants at target is a regular occurance.

  6. This doesn't make me jealous. MAKES ME HUNGRY. Yum!
