Just wanted to show you what I have been eating while I am here! We have a small kitchen with an even smaller refrigerator, but to be honest, a majority of the food I have eaten has been from the Grocery Store.

My first real taste of Irish food was at a restaurant called Riordan’s (pronounced like Reerdin’s) 

I had..what else?? IRISH STEW:

 You guys this was incredible!!! It was boiled cabbage, potatoes, boiled carrots, the stew- which is a combination of Lamb, spices, and “gravy”. Again, this was soooooo good. I think I could eat it every day.

Then I found a little treat that is currently my new obsession- bloggies, meet Yoghurt Covered Banana Chips:

Another great spot in the City is the farmer’s market. It has some local food vendors, crafts, jewelry, and more…it was adorable in every way.

While there, I decided to get some dinner for the night- Vegetarian Kitchiri- a combination of Basmati Rice, Mung Beans, onions, carrots, peas, leeks and a wide array of spices: Cumin, Coriander, Ginger, Cinnamon- it was delish!!!

 As for last night we decided to go to a smaller bar called The Dáil Bar:

For my meal I ordered: Baked Chicken Roulade- you guys, it just keeps getting better and better!!! This was incredible.

From the menu: Baked breast of chicken wrapped in leeks, filled with Toulouse sausage and smoked mozzarella served with roasted butternut squash and a lemon and sage veloute. NUM NUM!!!

I actually don’t have lyrics for this post (GASP!) but I think the food porn will suffice 🙂

Ciao Bellas!

  1. Hi! So i called centurytel today and got an appointment for the cable and internet to be hooked up. I asked for really basic cable and high speed internet. The bill will be 76.19 for the first 6 months because of a discount he gave us and 94.19 for the last 6 months. Is that high??? I think it kinda is but maybe I think that because only me and you will be paying it?!?! Ok that’s all!! O..and this next Monday won’t work for me on Skype because I am gonna be in Milwaukee. I totally forgot about that before when I was talking to you!!! Ok well have a great day!!! 🙂
