Recovery and Kodak

Sorry its been hard to try getting on with this broncitus thats going around with everyone right now.

On a sad state of news, Kodak (the original camera sponsor of Disney) is going bankrupt and will stop production on all digital cameras, video cameras, and digital picture frames after the first quarter of 2012. Just to have a little look back, here are there old Disneyland ads:

WK 5 - WS - 4 Hours Left

In just four hours we will know which signature sandwiches will be crowned the top 10 for possible review. In the mean time I continue to watch Disney and Food specials to get more ideas for content in addition to the reviews and a podcast or vlog format. Limited by the amount I can work on tonight because my modem has gone out.

Progress in progress.

WK 5 - WS - Top 10 Signature Sandwiches Voting Ends Tomorrow @ Midnight

The voting has been great with over 22 sandwiches being votes on with 59 votes. So far unless some drastically changes the ones that are safe include:

Le Especial de Monte Cristo @ Café Orleans
Fried Green Tomato Sandwich @ Hungry Bear Restaurant
Wild Bleu Yonder Burger @ Taste Pilots Grill
Three Cheese Monte Cristo @ Café Orleans
Angus 1/3 lb. Pastrami Cheeseburger @ Village Haus
Chicken Waldorf on Brioche @ Jolly Holiday

Ones that are close but have not yet made the cut include

Cochon de Lait Po-Boy @ Jazz Kitchen
Char-broiled Chicken Sandwich @ White Water Snacks
Tennessee BBQ Pork @ River Belle Terrace
Bamba's BBQ Wrap @ Rainforest Café
River Belle's Roast New York @ River Belle Terrace
Caprese Sandwich @ Jolly Holiday

There are 10 other sandwiches with only 1 vote that would have a ways to go to make the cut.

There have been two points brought up that I have to put into consideration. One has to do with only doing sandwiches located in Disneyland, DCA, and their hotels but not Downtown Disney (especially if its a chain like Rainforest Café). The second is only reviewing one sandwich per venue. For instance not reviewing both Monte Cristo's at Café Orleans (technically I could eat the traditional at Blue Bayou, but I do not think that won't be happening this trip), or a better example is the Chicken Waldorf vs. Caprese Sandwich. If I agreed to both of these concepts as both the best sandwiches in the parks/hotels and only one per venue the list will end up looking like:


1. Le Especial de Monte Cristo @ Blue Bayou
2. Fried Green Tomato Sandwich @ Hungry Bear Restaurant
3. Wild Bleu Yonder Burger @ Taste Pilots Grill
4. Three Cheese Monte Cristo @ Café Orleans
5. Angus 1/3 lb. Pastrami Cheeseburger @ Village Haus
6. Chicken Waldorf on Brioche @ Jolly Holiday
7. Char-broiled Chicken Sandwich @ White Water Snacks
8. Tennessee BBQ Pork @ River Belle Terrace
9. Classic Angus 1/3 lb. Cheeseburger or Mahi Mahi Sandwich @ Tomorrowland Terrace
10. 1/2 lb. Cher-broiled Burger @ Storyteller's Café

So we will see how things turn out after the vote ends at midnight tomorrow.





WK 5 - WS - Update

Have been busy planning the trip for the 24 hour event for the reviews. Within the next few days we will finalize the votes for the Best Signature Sandwiches and begin planning the segments. Thanks for all of your input so far.

WK 4 - DP - Nut Crusted Salmon Take 2

No photos on this post. I made the Nut Crusted Salmon again this time using a little more oil and pressing the nut mixture on a little more in steps and the crust turned out much better. I will be attempting this recipe again (with pics next time) soon but with little cayenne and cumin so it is not competing with the Salmon as much and the flavors better compliment each other.
