Thread: No famine in Ireland, she reports

    Default No famine in Ireland, she reports

    And I know this because I've just come back with not only the usual sweaters
    but an extra five pounds.

    As promised, most of the breakfasts were based on sausage, bacon, black and
    white pudding, etc. Once in a while I had porridge with heavy cream.

    Lunches were creamy vegetable soups and hearty pub sandwiches, washed down
    with Guinness.

    But dinners! Ah! Salmon, of course, in every possible manner, pheasant
    terrine, Connemara lamb, Galway oysters, Dublin Bay prawns. Desserts were
    deadly: raspberry and pistachio semifreddo, profiteroles, pavlovas, trifles,
    etc.

    Yeah, spuds, too. Ever had a couscous timbale with potato filling? How about
    a bed of mashed under almost every entree? Or a selection of boiled, mashed
    and scalloped in family-style serving bowls?

    Now we go into the penance phase, a few weeks on Slimfast.

    Thanks to those who wished me a good trip. It was one of the best.

    WB Felice. Glad to hear Ireland was good to you! Were you able to
    see everything you wanted to see?

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    I doubt that thou art fat. Those slinky nightclub dresses you are so
    fond of might be a tad tighter, but that too shall pass.
    Welcome home.

    I'm keeping all this in mind for next year's St. Patrick's Day planning.
    Thanks for the post, and welcome back!
