    Disney Dining at Home Picture A Day (or more... whatev)

    Does anyone else try to make the foods you have tried at Disney for yourself at home?

    I have the cookbooks and I have recipes I have found on the internet from Disney and I am slowly trying to make all my favorites.

    I want to see everyone's attempts... successful or not. Let us know how difficult or easy it was.

    And if you have the actual Disney Dining shot, post a comparison between the two.

    I made the Le Cellier cheese soup. I should have taken a pic of it in the bowls... it doesn't look too attractive in the pot and I don't even have a comparison pic since I was too excited at the time and forgot to take a picture.

    It wasn't hard to make, but the preparation was a little time consuming and boring.

    We had to substitute the specific types of beer and cheese for whatever we could afford at the store. So... store brand cheese and I don't remember what kind of beer, my fiance picked out a kind he liked so he could drink the rest.

    I don't like the taste of beer... so next time, I will reduce the beer to 1/4 cup.




    The Recipe...

    Ingredients:

    1/4 lb. smoked bacon finely chopped
    1 medium red onion cut into 1/4 in. pieces
    1/2 cup finely sliced celery
    1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
    3 TB all-purpose flour
    3 cups whole milk
    2 cups chicken stock
    12 oz. grated white cheddar, Canadian Black Diamond
    3 dashes Tabasco
    1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 cup Moosehead Canadian Ale, room temperature
    salt and pepper to taste
    1 TB thinly sliced chives

    Method:
    1. Cook the bacon in a large heavy-bottomed, non-reactive soup pot over medium heat until wilted but not browned.
    2. Add onions, celery and carrots and cook until the onion is translucent and bacon has crisped.

    3. Sprinkle in flour and stir constantly for 2 minutes. Stir in milk and stock, a little at a time, blending well to ensure there are no lumps. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

    4. Remove from heat and whisk in cheese, Tabasco, Worcestershire and ale. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Serve with your favorite bread and top with chopped chives.

    I made Sopa Azteca tonight (technically last night, since it is 1:30am now).

    This is the original in Mexico pavillion at Epcot (San Angel Inn):


    This is mine:



    The soup was dead snap easy to make. The only hard part is trying to find one of the ingredients... epazote. I ended up finding it at a little shop called El Burrito Mercado... so you may have to find a little Mexican shop for it because the flavor is so unique that I cannot think of any substitute for it.

    Also I took the lazy way out and used tortilla chips instead of frying them up myself.


    the recipe...


    Ingredients
    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1/3 cup chopped onion
    1 1/3 cup peeled, seeded, chopped tomatoes
    4 tablespoons sour cream
    1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh epazote
    2 chili peppers
    4 soft corn tortillas
    1/2 medium ripened avocado, cubed
    1 teaspoon garlic
    1 quart chicken broth
    Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large sauce pot. Saute onion, tomatoes and garlic until onion is transparent. Add chicken broth and epazote. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
    Remove seeds and stems from chili peppers and cut each in two pieces lengthwise. Cut tortillas in 1/3 inch strips. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in a skillet and fry peppers for five seconds. Remove to a paper towel and fry tortilla strips until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.
    Divide chili peppers, tortilla strips and avocado cubes between 4 heavy ceramic or clay soup bowls. Pour the hot chicken broth into bowls. Garnish each with a spoonful of sour cream and Monterey Jack cheese.

    I do this all the time! In regular rotation are Chef Mickey's Breakfast Pizza (add bacon or ham or sausage to that recipe and it's all kinds of awesome), Mom's Meat Loaf and the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup.

    Do not, I repeat, do not make the High Plains Granola from Storyteller's Cafe. Way too good and waaaaaaaaaaaay too addictive.

    The sopa looks good. May have to try that one.
