Hi friends, I certainly hope you aren't hungry as you read this, because it won't help you at all. I wanted to share some of our meals with you. The first day or two I kept forgetting to take photos of our meals and now I have to pull my camera out before we are served to remind myself. I will say the first couple of days we only ate salads; I just wasn't sure how gluten free the Irish would be, but I'm pleased to say that everywhere we've eaten has had gluten free food and breads-except for the hotel breakfast buffets. The other interesting fact is that Irish don't have Ice Tea, just hot tea. I should have realized that, but I'm so used to having ice tea for lunch that it has been an adjustment for me. Twice now I've sipped on a Coke, which is almost a sin in my book. We have found some great Lemonade that you can get here, so that has been my go to drink. In the morning and evening I always have tea; got into that habit last fall and I think it has been healthier for me. The top photo is one of first dinners at a Pub; I had a Salmon filet on a gluten free bun with gluten free fries(on the bottom) and hubby had a crab cake sandwich with frees and a light Guinness.
Tomorrow I will share photos from the Ring of Kerry-such a beautiful coastal area and it is truly what Ireland looks like in books and postcards. Again, I was drawn to the land-but more on that tomorrow.
