Archive for the tag “stout”


Yesterday my good friends and I went out to do our Christmas girls day out.  We always try to go to a restaurant that we have never been to.  This year we went to O’Dowd’s Little Dublin down on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.    We got there and ordered an appetizer of spinach artichoke dip and a round of beer. 


Ila and Vickie opted for a nice lite Irish Lager.


I, on the other hand, ordered a nice thick stout.



The atmosphere was nice and inviting. 


I ordered the grilled salmon boxty.  It was so tasty!  The salmon was grilled perfectly, and the mashed potatoes…..well, I can never say anything bad about mashed potatoes!


Our waitress wasn’t as personable as we are used to.  We usually have the wait staff in the picture with us, however this year we were just glad she was willing to take our picture.

Road Trip

Yesterday Glen and I went on a little road trip to Weston, Mo.  It is a fun/quaint little town.  The first thing we did was eat.  Glen did a little research and decided we needed to eat Here.  We both ordered the O’Malley sandwich…. “Signature sandwich slathered with Corned Beef, Swiss Cheese and Marinated Slaw on grilled Marble Rye Bread with Spicy Brown Mustard, offered with a mound of Pub Fries“.  It was abso-freaking-lutely fantastic!  Naturally since we were at a brewery we had to try out their beer. Glen opted for the O’Malley stout and I had the 1842 Porter.  Both were quite tasty!   Afterwards, we waddled our way to the Pirtle Winery, (check it out here).  We tasted a few wines, the best being a Traminette.  They also have fantastic meads.  The rest of the afternoon consisted of walking up and down Main Street checking out the many little shops in town.


One of the stores we went in was a home interior/taxidermy store.  Glen really liked this squirrel.


On our way home, we went to the Weston Bend State Park.  It is a gorgeous park with walking trails.


Walking along the trail we found large fungus growing on a rotted log.



Lookout point….wish the trees were further along in changing colors.  Still a great view!

Birthday Beverages

Last Friday was Glen’s 40th birthday.  We played it pretty low key.  We went to his moms house and ate lasagna until we thought we would pop.  The downer was he bought a nice stout beer for himself but was too full to drink any of it.   However, he was able to enjoy it Saturday evening….a good way to prolong your birthday.



I did sample the beer, and it was pretty tasty.  However, I stuck with the wine.  I enjoyed a nice glass of Malbec.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
