Ten Menu Planning Printables

When it comes to menu planning, I am a pen and paper kind of girl.  Well actually, it’s more like a marker and my chalkboard menu I created shortly after we moved into our new house.  Regardless, it is handwritten and in the kitchen for everyone to see.  This helps answer the “What are we having for dinner?” question before it is even asked.  And if a couple of weeks go by and I haven’t changed it, then one of {Read More}

Dining on Disney Cruise Line

Dining on Disney Cruise Line is amazing.  One thing I personally loved about dining on the Disney Dream was that it gave us the perfect opportunity to try something new.  For example, the likelihood of me trying escargots here at home is about zilch.   Put it in front of me on a Disney cruise ship, and I may take a bite….and kind of like it but not enough to eat the whole serving.  But, I tried it, right?  That, {Read More}
