Today was the first good day in a bit for me weather wise. We missed a big heat wave when we were in Ireland for two weeks, got home on this week. Weeds took over the garden, but everything is doing ok .


How did you like Ireland? My wife and I spent two wks there about ten yrs ago.Had a great time and the Irish are awesome people.

The people are wonderful until they get behind the wheel of an auto. Passing on a road barely big enough for 2 cars with walls on both side was a common occurrence LOL

We toured all the back country in a rented auto.The best part is driving on the wrong side of the road,that took some time to get comfortable!!

We did the same, went from Dublin to the west coast to the north coast. Lots of sheep in the road and beautiful country. We took a trip to inishmore island and out of 100 on the boat 80 got sick. Swells we well over 10 feet a usual 1hour trip took over 2. Good times LOL

So in that adventure, what was the cuisine like ?
In France it was terrible to us. Funky foods like duck liver, rabbit, quail, mutton, weird seafood, lots of greens and breads. Coffee was yuck, tiny cups with a whole cube of sugar,no milk or cream.
Produce was way over ripe.
The people in France were skinny. The portions were at least 1/2 the USA size.
I basically ate frozen imported food, greens and breads while there. Wife tried everything under the sun that made me cringe.
What we didn't see were cows or much beef, chickens or pork.

And when we are deemed obese, it is based on that particular body type and calorie intake being the standard.

Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.

We tried a few things and most was ok. Sheep, lamb , fish and chips. Mostly we ate out of supermarkets and coolers. Way cheaper and I am eating things I like. Salt of the earth folks here, mostly farmers. We got stuck waiting on a tractor parade. 350 plus  from all years and makes. From 100k  machines to 500$ oldies. It was a highlight.

Us too but where we were there were no supermarket. It was narrow alleys and open markets. It kinda grossed us out but it was the normal for them folks.
Our meals were buffet or order style. They were fancy to the folks that live the area but not my appetite.
Sometimes I just need a cheeseburger
