Disney at Home: Coconut Curried Chicken Stew

One of my absolute favorite restaurants at Disney World (if I have to choose) is Boma – Flavors of Africa, located at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.  It’s a favorite of mine because of the rich African flavors incorporated in every tasty dish.  Sitting under a thatched roof, surrounded by great views, this family-friendly buffet is quickly becoming a favorite for breakfast among many Disney guests, and also serves an awesome lunch and dinner.

Head there for lunch time, and try the Coconut Curried Chicken Stew.  If you are like me, and not planning to be there for a while, here’s a recipe you can try at home.

Foodie Friday - A Sweet Summer Salad and a Taste of Disney World All in One

A friend was hosting a cookout for the 4th of July and I was asked to bring a dish to pass.  Yes, I could have brought one of the staples like potato salad or baked beans, but I wanted something new and yet easy and kid-friendly.  In going through recipes in my cookbooks and recipe cards, I found a winner: African Fruit Fool from Boma in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Just missing a garnish to make it look as great as it tastes!
As a disclaimer, I do not regularly cook.  In reality, my family eats out most evenings.  That being said, sometimes I like to make things just to prove that I still can!  Fortunately, this salad was simple, although somewhat time consuming.  Cutting up all that fruit took about 1/2 hour.  I got some great mother-son time doing it, though, because my 8-year-old son helped cut some of the softer fruits like the bananas.  I also whipped cream for the first time and it was fun!  I may stop buying premade now that I know how easy it is!

Anyway, I tried the salad and ended up licking the mixing spoon before putting it in the sink to wash.  Plus, I not only had some with dinner, it's so sweet that I also had it for dessert.  My friends at the cookout also all enjoyed it and it gave me a little "Disney" in between trips to the parks so I definitely give it two thumbs up.
