My son's birthday Lunch at Tepan Edo (Epcot's Japan)

Our server "fixed" my son's chopsticks so they were easier for him to use!

Hubby's side salad with Ginger Dressing (good size!!)

My brother in law ordered the mixed vegetables. They cooked his meal first so meat didn't touch it. (Nice for vegetarians!!)

Building a volcano out of onions!

My son wanted beef tenderloin. Since Filet Mignon is not in the kids menu, he had to order an adult entree. 

The wait staff gave him a special birthday hat, saying a cute little song, and gave him a free slice of green tea cheesecake.

Harry's in St. Augustine

My family of four headed to St. Augustine for a little outing today. We wanted to eat somewhere that had good seafood and Harry's did not disappoint! It is a "New Orleans style" seafood/Creole restaurant.

Web: http://hookedonharrys.com/menu/


My hubby ordered the Shrimp and Scallop Orleans which is served over a sweet grit cake, along with a side of red beans and rice. 


I opted for the crabcakes with the side of smashed potatoes.

And my son ordered the kids fried fish with french fries and a kids salad. 

For dessert, we shared a huge piece of Keylime pie.  Yum!

We opted for beer with our lunch, but there's an extensive menu of wine and cocktails!

Overall, the food was delicious! Seasoned perfectly, friendly service, and reasonable prices.  There is indoor and outdoor seating, but since the temperatures were cooler, we opted to sit inside. A nice combinations of blues and soul music playing in the background as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the St. Augustine area!

Amazing candy apples at Walt Disney World

Today, I was walking around Downtown Disney and happen to walk into Goofy's Candy Co. I was amazed at the selection of candy apples!
