We had planned on visiting the Princess Diana Exhibit when we first got into Branson. I was very disappointed when we went to the location and it was no longer there. That is one of the things that I was the most excited about on this trip! We originally found the information on a website that was obviously out of date. I believe that if a company has a website, they should update it on a regular basis or take it down - a pet peeve of mine!
I did manage to get in a little shopping. (My husband says I got in a lot of shopping.) He says I’ve spent my scrapbook budget for the next year! We’ll just see about that!
Clockwise from the top: For breakfast one day we stopped at Bob Evans and I had the hotcakes stuffed with sweet cinnamon chips, stacked with vanilla cream cheese and drizzled with rich cinnamon cream sauce.
At Outback Steak in Springfield, IL, I had the tilapia with pure lump crab meat. The tilapia was crowned with crab stuffing and sliced button mushrooms, finished with a drizzle of light lemon butter Chablis sauce.
Our first night at the 1886 Crescent Hotel, we dined at Dr. Baker’s Bistro. I had the Baker Burger. It was a ½ lb hamburger on toasted ciabatta roll with Swiss and olive oil roasted potatoes seasoned with truffle salt.
Our last lunch was at Mel’s Hardluck Diner. That was a very interesting place! All of the waiters and waitresses sing, and you can even buy their CDs. It’s just song after song while you’re eating. I had a delicious chicken salad, garnished with almonds, eggs and cucumbers.
One of my favorite meals was at Landry’s Seafood House. I had the shrimp fresca. The shrimp was dusted, Parmesan crusted and topped with jumbo lump crab, served with angel hair pasta.
Last, but not least, I enjoyed a few chocolate martinis. That’s it! Thanks for stopping by!
