I Miss Irish Food

by Meghann on March 17, 2009

This morning I reminisced about the traditional Irish Breakfast I enjoyed in Ireland last year, now I would like to focus on one  of the wonderful lunches I consumed over there.

I ordered this little beauty at the cutest little coffee shop in a little town I don’t remember the name of. 

The whole time I had been in Ireland I was really enjoying the Egg Sandwiches I was being served, so I tried to order one off the menu, instead I ended up with the above plate of yumminess. I was pleasantly surprised with my meal and it had to be my favorite order that I made by mistake the whole time I was there. I really need to try to recreate the concept one day. πŸ™‚

My lunch today was not on quite the same level as the one in Ireland, but it was still a delicious creation served on a festive green plate.


I have discovered the best way to repurpose any left overs is to stuff it in a Pita and call it a day, which is exactly what I did with the Vegetable Extravaganza Cheesey Chickpea Casserole from Sunday night. It made the perfect pita stuffer.


On the side I had a slice of Tomato and Avocado.. It seemed an odd item to have as a side dish, but it worked well.


I then went back and grabbed one of Melissa’s Pumpkin Muffins. πŸ™‚


I could hear them calling my name from the fridge!

Mid-Morning I snacked on a mini Chocolate Coconut Chew Larabar.


For a little St. Patty’s Day Spirit check out the Flashing Shamrock Earings my boss gave me that I am currently rocking.


Yes, I am that cool. πŸ˜‰

What the heck is on that plate from lunch in Ireland? Pineapple, apple, corn, coleslaw? Random combo!

Irish food is the BEST. My mom and I were just reminiscing about it last night on the phone, while she was cooking some corned beef & cabbage.

Nice earrings!

For just a moment, I thought you’d gotten a “mom haircut.” Nope, just me. Shucks.

17 Erin March 17, 2009 at 3:19 pm

Those earrings are super fun, and That lunch from Ireland looks amazing! I wish when I made mistakes on my orders I would end up with something like that.

20 biz319 March 17, 2009 at 4:15 pm

Love the earrings – I don’t have ANYTHING green in my wardrobe!

Oh well, I’ll be drinking beer tonight – that counts, right? πŸ˜€

Love the Irish plate by the way!! You should definitely recreate it!

21 Emily March 17, 2009 at 5:31 pm

Love your St. Patty’s spirit!
I made some of Melissa’s muffins, and they are so good!

22 Sarah W. March 17, 2009 at 5:33 pm

I love Ireland too! I’m posting some pics later too :-p

My friend has those SAME flashing earrings! she wore them to Shamfest this weekend!!

I dont miss Irish food b/c the black and white puddings are NOT appetizing – even my hubby disliked it! I did like my eggs at the B&B’s we stayed in!

and seriously you cannot find a single solitary green veggie in Ireland – by midweek Hubby was CRAVING a green salad – it was that bad!!!

st pattys in ireland is the BEST tho!

23 Meg March 17, 2009 at 6:09 pm

Those earings are so cute!

Oh that breakfast looked so good! I would love to go to Ireland!

24 Debbie March 17, 2009 at 6:21 pm

25 Sharon March 17, 2009 at 8:11 pm

Totally love the earings!

26 Adi ( March 17, 2009 at 8:17 pm

Cool is right! Those are awesome earrings.
Your Ireland lunch looks really neat. Whenever I had super mixed up lunches as a kid, we called it “Little bit of This, Little bit of That.” Same idea πŸ™‚

27 Jenn (eating bender) March 17, 2009 at 11:50 pm

I love the earrings, Meghann πŸ™‚ I’m also loving the pictures and facts about your trip to Ireland. My mom went there last year and loved it – I really want to take a trip someday!
