The Melting Pot looks fab, think I might choose this place for my birthday meal next year then no one can argue that they don't fancy it

Just read through and really enjoyed your report so far

Cracker Barrell

Today we were heading to Busch Gardens, we stopped at Cracker Barrell on the way for some breakfast.

I had eggs in the Basket, Daniel had pancakes.

Today was a really bad picture day, my phone died as I didnt charge it the night before and I didnt bother using anyone elses phones for pictures.

I did manage to take a pic of my iced coffee before the phone died on me.

Delmonicos Steak House

This was another new try for us tonight, this is a chain restaurant but there is only one in Orlando.

My parents had visited here on their trip to Orlando in 2018, they said it was amazing and such good value for your money.



Again Daniel & I decided to share our meal, which I am glad we did as the portions really are huge, the waiter even suggested that all of 4 of us share the starter as it was a big portion but we got two portions to share between the 4 of us.

Bruschetta Pomodoro
Grilled Italian Bread brushed with Olive Oil & Garlic, topped with Provolone, Tomato & Basil.



As you can see you get three full size lengths of Ciabatta bread, the picture doesnt really do this any justice as this was honestly the best bruschetta ever, it was really garlicky which I love IMO you can never have too much garlic, we did finish the whole portion and I even picked at mum and dads leftovers, which I later regretted because I was too full for my main lol.

We also shared a bottle of wine between the 3 of us (dad was driving).

Sliced Sirloin Steak
One pound (16 oz) of Choice or Better Sirloin with Cabernet Mushroom Sauce & Garlic Mashed Potatoes.



Both mum and dad chose this, and omg it was amazing. I tried a little taste and instantly had food envy! It was one of the nicest bits of steaks I had tried and mash potato was great, I am not sure what they do to mash in the USA, not matter what I add it at home I can never get it to taste the same
this was such a good meal.

Chicken Prosciutto
Penne Pasta, Grilled Chicken, Mushrooms, Prosciutto, Greens, Red & Green Onions w/ Asiago Cheese Sauce.



This is what Daniel and I shared, the pasta bowl/ plate was literally the size of a serving dish. It was massive, but it was so good.

We tried hard but barely made a dent in this, considering we hadnt been eating much I think it was a bad idea for us to choose both a carb dense starter and main, but I am glad we did as it was really tasty.

The total bill came to around $140 with tax and tip.

After dinner we decided to play a round of Mini Golf, we drove to the Pirates Cove on I-Drive.



Just as we got to the 3rd hole, the heavens opened and it was chucking it down and none of us fancied getting soaking so we headed back to the front and they gave us a rain cheque so we could come back another day, after about 15 minutes of driving the rain cleared up .. typical.

We didnt fancy driving back to Golf and none of us were tired, so we decided to go to Celebration.

Kilwins

We had a little drive round Celebration, gazing at all the houses. The dream retirement place

Daniel said one day we will have a retirement home here (thanks babe, wishful thinking )

After a drive around fantasyland.. we pulled up at the main town/ market area and had a wonder by the fountains, we alwayyys used to come here when I was kid and me and my cousins would play in the fountains for hours.



We then headed over to Kilwins, for a little bit of after dinner pudding.
I already knew what I was having.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake






This is just my favourite, all the best flavours in one combination.

Mint Choc Chip Cone



Daniels choice and as you can see he was quick to tuck in before I could get a snap, and he made a bold statement of best mint chocolate ice cream Ive ever had.

I cant remember exactly what we paid, but it was no more than $15.

IHOP

Today we were up nice and early, we were heading to Universal Studios.

On the way there we stopped at IHOP for some breakfast.

We shared a breakfast combo

Bacon & Cheese Omelette



I love IHOP omelettes, they are always so tasty and nice and filling.

Pancakes with Nutella



These arent actually on the menu, but we just asked for regular pancakes with a serving of Nutella.

With two drinks, tax and tip with paid around $20.

WWOHP



Once we arrived at Universal, we rode a few of the rides and then made our way round to Harry Potter, and of course had to get a frozen butter beer.



Butter Beer






These are about $6 you can pay a little extra for the souvenir glass, but I already one of these at home.

Daniel didn't get anything, he just tried a sip of mine and he said this was too sickly for him.
