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.

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

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
