Disney Week (it’s actually Week 2) continues…

You guys know that I’m slightly obsessed with the Happiest Place on Earth! What can I say? I feel like all our worries melt away when we’re there and we can just focus on having fun with the family. It’s the best feeling in the world. 😀

Not only do we love the rides and atmosphere, but we also love the food there. In fact, I feel like we eat our way through the park every time we go. There are just so many restaurants and foods to try, and we probably haven’t even scratched the surface there. From the churros to Monte Cristo sandwiches, we have so many favorite recipes, but one of my hubby’s favorites is the Mint Juleps that can be found in New Orleans Square at Disneyland. It’s his favorite sweet indulgence at the park, so he was STOKED when I told him I’d be trying a copycat recipe for the drink. I’d only steal a sip or two when he’d get the Mint Julep, so I wasn’t exactly sure how the recipe turned out but fortunately, he gave me a BIG thumbs up. He said it tasted just like it! In fact, he liked it so much he made sure we had plenty of syrup left so he could share it with some friends that were coming over for dinner the next day. 😉
