Quick Food Bytes

by Cate on November 15, 2005

Just a quick end-of-the-day food report, then off to see a show.

Breakfast was room service – figured that might let us sleep a little bit late and start the day in a relaxing way. Made for a great start!

For lunch, we ate in the cafe and they had a buffet line with a HUGE assortment of food. Everything from Vegetable Biryani, Pappadums, and two kinds of Pasta, to cold cut platters, meatballs, roast pork, rice, Caribbean Coconut Chicken, baked ham and more.

In the middle of the afternoon, Nicholas got the munchies, so we went back for a snack. Another ridiculous amount of food available … tacos, spaghetti, nachos, chili, hot dogs, sweet desserts and more. We settled for just nachos and Nicholas devoured a plate of fresh fruit.

Dinner was delicious, and I am still stuffed. Starter was Lobster Bisque. It was fine, just not a favorite. Only one piece of lobster meat in it, a little heavy-handed with the sherry and too dark a color. The main course I chose was Filet of Beef with Creamy Whipped Potatoes and a Cremini Green Peppercorn Sauce, finishing off the meal with Cherries Jubilees. Excellent – the beef was so tender, it nearly melted in your mouth. The Husband had the salmon, and Nicholas had Macaroni & Cheese (fine dining, I know).

Tomorrow morning, we arrive in Bermuda, and I’m looking forward to doing some sightseeing, shopping and checking out the local Bermudian foodie delights (The Bermuda Rum Cake Factory is on the list). Weather is supposed to be in the high 60s, low 70s – perfect.

Until the next update…

We’re going on a cruis in February, and I’m intimidated by the volume of food that I know will be available!

I’ve never been on a cruise, but know people that have come back from them weighing more! Be careful, and have fun!
