The Duck’s Recurring Dreams of Food and Darkness

The Duck dreams quite frequently, as you may have noticed from all the random dream posts I have written over the years.  For whatever reason, however, there are certain dreams I get far more often than others that began in ducklinghood and still continue to this day.  They can largely be broken down into two categories: food and darkness.

The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2019

In my last post, I ranked the foods we ate at Disneyland, and this time, we get to the good stuff, the desserts.  I’m going to rank some things we had in previous years (in italics), as well, but if you want to read my 2017 post and 2018 post, here they be.  Now, without further ado… Continue reading The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2019

The Duck’s Disneyland Food Tour 2019

As I’ve done for the last two years, I wanted to rank every food and dessert (in the next post) that we ate at Disneyland, with the ones that we didn’t actually have this time being in italics.  If you’re interested in reading my food rankings from previous years, you can find 2017 here and 2018 here.  So let’s waste no time!

Memories of Friendship: The Friend with the Sega

Last, but not least, it’s time I talked about my memories of friend C from elementary school.  This friend also had a very big house (I had the smallest house out of my friends; this is also the same friend who made fun of the fact that I had a small, blow-up pool in my backyard).  This house had some land around it, but not as much as friend A, but her neighborhood was very scenic, with a pond and a forest nearby.

Memories of Friendship: The Friend with the Uncrustables

Last time, I was reminiscing about the generically named friend A from elementary school.  For today’s post, we are now moving on to friend B.  This friend also had a large house, but it was one of many identical houses in a neighborhood where none of the backyards had any fences.  Like friend A, we spent a good deal of our time playing in the very large, but also very unfinished basement.  Unlike friend A, I never ate at this friend’s house because her mom only offered those weird Uncrustable sandwiches.  You know about those, right?  Those little round sandwiches that are supposed to eliminate bread crust, but which, instead, are surrounded by weird, hard bread that is even more unappealing than the crust had been.

Memories of Friendship: The Friend with the Pool

Many years back, when the Duck was in elementary school, I had three friends.  Though we got into plenty of arguments, I have many fond memories of our time together and decided to reminisce.  To protect their identities on this here Internet, they shall be referred to as friends A-C.  Since I don’t want this post to go too long, however, I’m going to break it into three.  Here we go… Continue reading Memories of Friendship: The Friend with the Pool

We Make Mildly Content Pancakes

Mother Duck and I always enjoy trying new recipes, and more often than not, we find that we stumble upon them quite by accident rather than by seeking them out.  The other day, we decided to watch a Youtube video whose most appealing attribute was the thumbnail showcasing insanely fluffy pancakes.  Called “happy pancakes”, these are made with pretty much the same ingredients as regular pancakes, but with the addition of fluffy egg whites to make them huge and puffy. Continue reading We Make Mildly Content Pancakes

Recreating the Plaza Inn’s Chicken and Taters

The Plaza Inn seems to be a bit of an obsession for me this year.  And since I enjoy recreating foods from Disneyland (Tigger Tails, Blue Bayou gumbo, and the Pixar Fest cake), I thought it was time I tried my hand at making the Plaza Inn’s famous fried chicken and ridiculously yummy mashed potatoes. Continue reading Recreating the Plaza Inn’s Chicken and Taters

Recreating the Pixar Fest Cake…Mostly

As you may remember, during our most recent trip to Disneyland, a special several-month-long event called Pixar Fest was taking place.  The festivities came in the form of special merchandise, food, fireworks, and parades, and one of the things I was the most excited about was a three-layer cake (the colors being yellow, blue, and red) that could be found at the Plaza Inn. Continue reading Recreating the Pixar Fest Cake…Mostly

The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2018

It is now time we talked about the desserts at Disneyland, including some special limited edition stuff they had in celebration of Pixar Fest!  One nice thing about the snacks at Disneyland is that they often come in large servings, meaning you can save some money by sharing (Mother Duck and I shared the curros and grey stuff twist, sometimes with food to spare).  I will be ranking all of the treats we’ve had, including those from last year’s visit, which will be in italics.  Oh, and if you want to read last year’s dessert post, you can find it here.
