A bit of a random blog title but I was trying to think what to call it and was giving myself a headache! This morning started off with the ground covered in hailstones and ice, watching Jono and Lucy walk to the car was like watching the march of the penguins! I should have filmed them 🙂 The photo above was taken overlooking the Coney Island ‘road’ I say road it’s really just a beach, although I’m told there is a bit of tar under the sand. Anyway I digress.
I was delighted to win a meal for two from The Swagman this week. So Lucy and I went along today, I’m sure she’ll do a blog post when she isn’t out gallivanting 😉 We shared garlic mushrooms for a starter, they were lovely and we were given a very cosy table next to the fire. After the freezing cold day it was wonderful to relax and enjoy the lovely atmosphere in the pub.
I had beer battered fish and chips for my main course, there was so much of it though, I couldn’t finish it. We also got peppercorn sauce to dip our chips in because we are just so classy!
Now a visit to the Swagman wouldn’t be complete without the peanut butter stack for dessert. It might not look like much but it’s the perfect combination of peanut butter cake smothered in warm chocolate sauce served with cream and ice cream…yum.
Not only was the food fab but there was also great music from the very talented Wayne O’Connor (who is also a wonderful artist as well as a musician). The great news is that the Swagman also do take aways of everything…including the desserts. At the moment gourmet takeaway pizzas are €10 all week anytime night or day
After all that food I waddled back to my car and looked at the lovely sunset. A lovely end to a great day. Thank you to the Swagman for picking me as a winner…if anyone else wants to give me free food I won’t complain 😉 (chancing my arm).
