Honeymooning in Ireland!!!!

After six years of dating and a year of wedding planning, Tony and I said “I Do” this past August. (Have you noticed I started saying “husband”?  We both cannot believe that it’s been almost two months since we “tied the knot” and we know things can only get better…says the woman who’s in the “honeymoon” phase of married life.

Speaking of honeymoons, Tony and I are getting pretty excited to go on ours…FINALLY!!!  We decided to go to Ireland, a long awaited trip for both of us.  We leave this Friday and we’ve begun counting the hours.  When I get back, I’ll make a special exception to the rules of my blog and write about what delectables we’ll get to nosh on there!  Stay tuned!!!

Also, my apologies for deciding not to post any new content for the next couple weeks.  Seriously though, it’s my honeymoon.  Can you blame me?  🙂

Stay Hungry!

McCormick’s Pub

A little background

Known as a place to have great food and great times, McCormick’s Pub in Wayzata, MN is a local favorite for a casual spot to meet.  McCormick’s is known for their burgers.  In 2013, their grass-fed burger, served with short ribs, made stole the third spot on the Twin Cities Burger Tour.  Too bad I didn’t know about this before my husband and I made an impromptu stop for a bite and a pint.

 My thoughts

Let me tell you, I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of McCormick’s Pub.  When we arrived after work, the place was busy, but the friendly staff was able to grab us a table for two.  Thanks!  If you haven’t checked this place out, you should just to look at the decor.  Their walls are adorned with everything Irish and it will definitely keep your eyes busy while you wait for your order.

Since I had no idea they had one of the best burgers in town, you might be wondering what I decided to go with for this visit.  Here’s what I got.

McCormick's Lobster Roll in Wayzata, Minnesota

I went with McCormick’s Lobster Roll Sandwich.  Hey, I was in a seafood kind of mood!  I was so excited when the waitress brought it out.  Just look at how awesome this is!  How a dish is presented definitely contributes to to overall experience of a visit.  It helped in this case.  While my meal looked great, I regretfully have to admit that I wasn’t the biggest fan of McCormick’s Lobster Roll.  The biggest turn off was the lobster itself.  I thought it was a little rubbery, which inevitably, required a lot more chewing to get it down.  Additionally, I was expecting a little more out of the bread.  It was a basic bread roll.  No special ingredients, no special baking process.  This is not a bad thing!  Personally, I would have liked to see some special seasonings baked into the bread that would complement the lobster and the dressing in the sandwich.

I will probably pay another visit to McCormick’s Pub.  I do believe that every place has their good and bad days.  Next time, I’m getting the burger.
