You knew it wasn’t going to take me that long to talk about the food here. Back at home my parents called me chowder and the black hole for a reason. I just love to eat a “wee” bit more than the average person. (Google “cartoon character chowder” for reference). And the food here in Ireland has yet to be a disappointment. I’m more so disappointed that it took me this long to come here.
So first I’ll talk about Maxol, which is one of the sponsors for the Waterford Wildcats. Meghan and I are allowed one meal a day here which is AMAZING. I usually get a sandwich with breaded chicken, bacon, cheese, and scallions. Pop that in the oven and it’s heaven😍. We are also fortunate enough to get a meal from our other sponsor, the Granville Hotel, on the weekends. The food here is great and always gives me that “home-cooked meal” vibe. Today I had the salmon with vegetables and mashed potatoes. I tend to eat the food really slow here so I can savor every bite because it is just that good.
Another thing I can’t stop eating are the sweets! Meg and I popped into a cute cafe in the city centre called Berfranks. I ordered a Belgium waffle with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and strawberries. Need I say more??😍😍
I am also a big fan of the doughnut shops in town, O Nuts Donuts and Dinky Donuts. Each shop creates a freshly made doughnut that literally just melts in your mouth.
And last but not least, I have become the biggest fan of these cookies I got from Aldi. I blame Coach Hayes for putting these cookies into our shopping carts because since then I have not been able to stop eating them😣. They are chocolate chip cookies, BUT… they have a chocolate covered bottom! Crunchy on the outside, but very soft in the middle, creating the perfect balance of cookie and chocolate💜. All I know is that it’s a good thing training has started.😊
