Frist Family Vacation - 2nd Day in Parks - Epcot Part 1

I am going to do Epcot in a two part series.  Yes, there is THAT much info!  Plus there are TONS of pics and I don't want to drown you in all of them at once.

We started our morning with early reservations at Akershus in the Norway pavilion at Epcot.

Oh! My! Word!

Let's just say, I could pack up right now and move to Norway!  I LOVED the old Scandinavian style buildings.

We were the second family to enter the restaurant that morning and what a BEAUTIFUL restaurant it is!

You are greeted outside by some cast members then you are shown to an area where.....Belle (yes, THE Belle from Beauty and the Beast) is.  If my mom would have been with us I can promise you she would have been crying at the moment she turned her head and saw her.  She kind of likes Belle.

As for my girls, they were in Princess Heaven!
After you meet Belle and get your picture taken with her, you are escorted to your table.

The service here was great, the best we had during our entire trip I think.

Akershus is a buffet and also a family style meal.  The buffet offers muffins, bagels and other pastries along with fresh fruit, cheese and fish.  At the table you are brought your hot items that include, eggs, breakfast potatoes, sausage and I think there was one other thing but I can't remember what that is right now.  Everything (except the fish, totally not a fish person) was great!

While you are eating, other princesses come out to greet you.  Cinderella was by far MG's favorite, Cinderella even gave her a HUGE hug and kissed her on the forehead.  It was so stinking cute!  Ariel was of course Mads favorite, she has loved Ariel since she was two.
Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)
 Waiting on more princesses
 lol MG looks like she is keeping her eye on Mads.  Mads better not get too close to Cinderella!
 One last hug and kiss
 She was so silly
After the Princesses have made their rounds they parade all the kids through the restaurant then I guess read a story, we didn't stay for that part.  We had things to do!

We would DEFINITELY go back to eat here!

This was the best Princess experience between this restaurant and the castle.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
