2019 World Cruise - Day 26

Monday 01.28.19 - Exciting Day At Sea 
Pacific Princess



We slept in & skipped breakfast. I began writing Day 12 of our 2018 road trip.

12pm lunch in the main dining room:

I had…
Seafood Quesadilla - The flavors were pretty food, but this would have been better if the the tortilla was sealed up.

White Bean Minestrone - A nice thick soup, packed with flavor.

Minute Steak - This was another surprise. I was amazed at how good this was. A perfect medium rare tender steak.

Apple-Walnut Cobbler - WOW! This was so good. I hope the have it again soon. I like that it was cooked in an individual ramekin.

Lettuce salad - "This had grapes and walnuts tasty with the oil and vinegar dressing."

Chicken legs - "I really liked this.  They took leg meat and rolled with stuffing, sliced, and served with a light drizzle of gravy.  Boneless dish."

Lemon Jello - "A good basic lemon jello."

These sliced jalapenos were waiting for us when we arrived to dinner

cranberry compote

Potato Soup - thick tasty soup that could have used some more croutons.
Twice Baked Potato Cream Soup, Herbed Croutons

Pappardelle Pasta (app size) - This was another really good dish that needed more meat.

Goose - Our waiter said that I was the first to order this. I absolutely loved it. The goose was so tender & juicy.

I added some Bravado Spice Apple & Jalapeno hot sauce to make for a few awesome bites.

Shelly had…
Potato Soup - "This was thick and creamy but bland.  I added jalapenos and it was better."
Twice Baked Potato Cream Soup, Herbed Croutons

Pappardelle Pasta (app size) - "I thought this had good flavors but I wished the ragout was meatier, it was more of a light gravy."

Salmon Coulibiac - "I was hesitant to try this but decided to be daring.  This is like a beef wellington but with salmon, rice, and spinach.  The dough was flaky and all the flavors melded well together.  The salmon was cooked well.  Of course, I added jalapenos."

Crepes - "this was different, these look like enchiladas.  2 small crepes baked in a dish covered with a sauce.  One was filled with Apples and the other sour cherries.  They were both tasty with a slight sour note."
