Around the world…

Where in the world are Josh and Bev?

Grizzly Peak, but hard to see the grizzly head from here.
And now the rocks of Radiator Springs
Whole paper dollars is the springs? Inflation has hit Radiator Springs hard apparently…
Grizzly River Rapids and hot springs!
It should be getting easier to guess…
The ferris wheel LED programming is fun. Kinda mesmerizing… Still photo doesn’t really convey it…
That’s right, we’re at the World of Color! You guessed it!


We were recently linked to this YouTube video, describing re-creating a Disney menu item of the future past, The Handwich!

So when I came into the kitchen this morning and found this, I became extremely worried:

So, handwich. If you didn’t watch the video, I think you can guess. Sandwich, but in a cone shape, so it can be held in one hand. When this was discussed in our group chat, alternatives (such as our local Bread Zeppelin) were roundly poo-poo’d because they “weren’t Disney enough”. So Bevin decided to go all-in.

4 Handwiches on a plate
Of course 1 wasn’t enough.

So, for all your “oh my god we’re on vacation and I ate all that I’m going to dieeeeeee” pleasure, here we have 4 totally unique handwiches.

The bread is Japanese Hokkaido milk bread, so it’s quite soft and fluffy. As far as ingredients go, from left to right we have:

  • Egg, Bacon, Mushroom, Cheese
    A breakfast delight! Why have your scramble with toast when you could have it in the bread instead?
  • Mac’n’Cheese’n’Bacon
    The best Kraft has to offer, with delicious thick-cut bacon bits. Yes, it could be handmade mac’n’cheese, but the blue-box Kraft hits the nostalgia button better.
  • Garlic black-truffle Chicken Tika Masala
    Yeah, there’s no India exhibition in EPCOT. If there were, this would probably not be welcome there. It is, however, quite delicious.
  • Philly Cheese Steak (Roast Beef, green pepper, grilled onions, and cheese.)
    May not be quite as authentic as it possibly could be, since it uses American cheese instead of cheese whiz, but I outright refused to buy Cheese Whiz.

They all turned out quite good. Maybe not pure Disney, but definitely extravagant!

The method of construction could be optimized. Unfortunately wrapping from the bottom and lying them on a pan creates a flat side, as well as causes the dough to slump to the bottom of the cone, creating a rather large bready bit at the end of your sandwich experience. Because the bread is nice and fluffy and sweet it’s almost like a dessert bread at the end though. (Perhaps this could be incorporated into the design, hmmm..) Bevin’s already planning how to make a steel cone with the pointy end up to wrap the bread around and bake to prevent this problems though.

leftover bready bites
Sweet bread! No, actually it’s a sweet bread. Looks sweet too though!

In short, please be thoughtful when sending Bevin random crazy cooking YouTube videos, she just might be insane enough to do it.

Dive-in Dumbo

Went to the pool, turns out they were having a “dive in movie” event.

This was a good way to see Dumbo. Pretty glad we didn’t go to the theater. Cool music, neat asthetic, bad writing and worse acting. But excellent background for paddling about.

I know we haven’t posted much lately, been stealthily working on getting a bunch of stuff done, and had company over. It’s been pretty much just getting house organized. We’re getting soooo close!
