The Irish cuisine has become
much more than just potatoes.
We weren't planning on eating at
5 star restaurants.
We stayed in a castle in Waterford.
We mostly moved from pub to pub
sampling the favorite local pub grub
Beef and Guinness Stew and Traditional Bacon and Cabbage
and, of course,
washing it down with a few of these.
Fish and Chips
Crab cakes, Irish style
All of our accommodations
included a full breakfast.
At the Pax House in Dingle,
I had to order boiled eggs and soldiers ( skinny toast)
both mornings just to enjoy the presentation.
A full Irish breakfast is
definitely a full meal,
bacon, two eggs, sausages,
fried tomatoes, and sometimes mushrooms,
and white and black pudding,
toast, scones, and fruit.
I know everyone has heard of the puddings.
It's really pork meat, suet, bread and oatmeal rolled
into the shape of a sausage.
The black pudding is basically the same
except blood is included into the mixture.
Our Irish eyes were smiling when we
discovered the "Queen of Tarts" in Dublin.
We satisfied our sweet tooth twice
enjoying their pastries and strong Irish tea.
Once we called it "lunch"!
Yes, we did a lot of walking to use up
some of those calories.

summed of the food experience
It's all about being open to
new taste experiences.
