Disney’s French Fried Ice Cream

For years I have desired to have French Fried Ice Cream like I used to get when we visited the Disney Inn.  The Disney Inn became Shades Of Green.  Shades Of Green is a military resort on the Disney World property.

A few weeks ago I decided that I wanted to make a real nice dinner for our anniversary.  A fresh garden salad was served.  I made a main course of Crab Meat Ravioli which comes from Tangaroa Terrace at the Polynesian Resort.  An accompanyment of Garlic bread was also available.  I made a dessert of French Fried Ice Cream.

Notes:

  • I made the fresh pasta dough, and formed them with a ravioli/pierogi form that we had.
  • I used a deep frier for the French Fried Ice Cream.

We ate these for our anniversary, and then I made it again a few days later when my uncle came up to visit.  No one seemed to have any problems with the food.  My uncle actually had a second serving so it must not have been that bad.

Here is the recipe for the Crab Meat Ravioli

  • 1 lb crab meat
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots
  • 1/2 cup minced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup cracker crumbs
  • 2/3 cup white sauce (additional recipe)
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • salt
  • pepper

October 2009 Trip Report Part 2

Yesterday we were off grounds for the most part, but did come back so the little one could participate in some good wholesome Disney Halloween activities.  We went over to the Boardwalk, and they had activities, and trick-or-treating for the kids.

OBFB_1_998OK, so today was the first day that we are going to be around Disney World.  When got up this morning we had totally forgotten about the time change, so we had to quickly get cleaned up, and ready for breakfast.  We were meeting with our friends at OHana in the Polynesian.  We got to the restaurant, and as usual had to wait a short amount of time.  The cost was $18.99 per adult, and $10.99 for children 3-9 years old.  Children under 3 are FREE.

Just a side note…Everyone is referred to as cousins, so that woman, or man you married… they aren’t married to you while you are there, as marrying cousins is illegal in most parts of the world.

We got seated at a table that had a great view of the Magic Kingdom.  Our server Michael greeted us at the table, and took our drink orders.  Naturally the adults all had coffee.  You can’t take me anywhere in Disney without me having my coffee.  It has something to do with the blend that they use because I love the coffee here.  Anyway… We got given bread when we came in, and they also brought some fruit plates to hold us until the food actually showed up.

ohana11The food that came was in a big bowl that was put in the middle of the table.  It had pork sausage links, smoked bacon, island style potato wedges, eggs, and biscuits.  You can have unlimited coffee, juice, and milk.  The server brought Mickey waffles to us manually, as they are being made on the fly.  During your meal 4 characters come around, and greet the children.  Those characters are Stitch, Lilo, Pluto, and Mickey.  There is also a mini parade where the children, and the characters walk around the restaurant making noise with instruments.

The bill came, and it was a rather reasonable meal.  We paid cash, as we aren’t on the dining plan until tomorrow.  Check out my other posts about the dining plan.  I have combined a lot of valuable information to get the most of the dining plan if you have chosen to get it.

The wife, and the little one went over to the Animal Kingdom, as I voted for me to be able to relax for a bit.  We are lucky enough to be going to Mickey’s Not So Scary tonight, and I don’t want to be dead on my feet.

Keep checking back, and you will get my full report on Mickey’s Not So Scary…
