I think Ireland and I have a lot in common, when it comes to everyday food. It’s not about just meat and potatoes. It’s meat, potatoes, and butter.
The cabbage we still disagree on.
Food Fact from Jenny:
Bacon, sausages, and eggs, are often served with a variety of side dishes. All good things we like! Alcoholic drinks are not the only traditional beverage in Ireland, however. A more common drink may actually be tea, which can be enjoyed with any meal. [source]
A little extra: Halloween was a celtic holiday, thus why we chose to cook up an Irish meal around this time. [source]
