To Eat and Eat Some More

What is the best part of vacationing? Eating! And not just eating like you do on a regular basis, but eating like you will never see food again. I have a theory that a person's stomach expands when they are on vacation. How else can you explain the constant hunger and the multiple trips to the buffet? No where else is this more apparent than on a cruise. We recently got back from a family vacation that took place on a cruise and I was amazed the whole time because of how much everyone ate. It was like our stomachs were bottomless pits that were never fully satiated. The cruise had an incredible amount of food and the buffets had an assortment goods. But on this cruise, it was the restaurants that really had me impressed. The presentation of the food was great and I liked how they used Cooking Light recipes to create a menu that was not only delicious, but also healthy. Here's a snippet of some of the dishes we ate (and drank) aboard Norwegian Cruise Line's Spirit:

Apple Pie

Veal Wellington with Fresh Vegetables

Shrimp Risotto

Chocolate Mousse in a Chocolate Cup

Cosmopolitan Martini

Salmon and Crab Legs

Creme Brulee

Crab Cake with a Spicy Guacamole Sauce

Lobster and Mashed Potatoes


Ricotta Cheesecake with a Strawberry Sauce

Veal Scallopini
