Eating Up Ireland

I was in Ireland for three days and am amused to announce that I had potatoes with every meal except one.

I found my full Irish breakfast. It totally hit the spot after a year of German Frühstücken* In Germany, breakfast in restaurants or hotels consist of muesli with yogurt, dark bread, and a variety of cold cuts and cheese. The full Irish breakfast consisted of fried eggs; sausages; two kinds of pudding, including a piece of blood pudding; beans; potatoes; and toast. I forgot to bring my camera to breakfast, but I've downloaded someone else's photo and posted it as the "Wurst of the Week" on Uberall.

Other meals on the trip included roasted chicken with mashed potatoes, fish and chips, and (my favorite) beef and Guinness pie. Kevin's favorite meal was a hearty bowl of Irish stew.

* Frühstücken is the German verb "to eat breakfast."

I love your blog! I live in Germany as well, though I am not a German, and Ireland is my favorit country (together with full irish breakfast:))! So far I didn't manage to understand are you American living in Germany, or...?
Anyway it is interesting to see how does Germany looks like from your perspective.
