Wednesday - Out to dinner at The Irishman

Everyone is feeling mostly better now, so we're back to the weekly date night. Tonight was a walk to a local restaurant we've only been to for lunch, the Irishman. We ate at this restaurant the day we signed the contract on our house and have been back (lunch-wise) several times. The food is good, though mostly not very Irish. The decor is great though and the staff is friendly. We've been meaning to go for dinner for a while, as the menu is more interesting and it's only a short walk from home (Ahh, I love living in a village!). The results were excellent. We were both ravenous and shared a decadent appetizer - the Irish quesadilla. I know, it sounds terrible, but it was lovely. Two tortillas stuffed with colcannon mashed potatoes, irish ham, black and tan infused cheddar, and scallions. This was a WONDERFUL creation. I had a grilled shrimp salad to be a bit more reserved with the main course and M had the very well regarded "Bangers and Mac", house-made sausage and mac n' cheese made with the aforementioned black and tan infused cheddar. It was INCREDIBLE. We will be back.
