Why the Irish Drink

I was poking around on food sites last night, which is one of my all-time favorite things to do, when I came across this on Cooks Illustrated:

Here...let me zoom in for you...

Check out Irish Cuisine. Seven. SEVEN!

Only seven recipes for the entire country!??! Even freaking Great Britain has 22 recipes and NO ONE wants to eat their food.  Of course I had to click through and see what seven dishes the poor drunk Irish could muster. Stew. Stew. Short ribs, which might as well be stew. Soda bread. Soda bread. Soda bread. And coffee.

I laughed until I cried. doesn't take much...

I kept thinking that those aren't Leprechauns...they're just malnourished Irish. Like North Koreans only with rainbows.

What's for dinner, honey?

Stew. Bread. Coffee. Why do you ask?

I'll have another drink.


  1. You might be kidding, but I kinda think you are on to something.

    1. I am deadly serious. And I'll have another drink.
