IN Pennsylvania

   Since we have been back in Pennsylvania we have visited with friends and families. We still have more friends to visit with. We have attended a Irish tasting event to raise funds for a friends child heading to Ireland on a school trip.  The menu follows
     Mini Welsh Rarebit
     Mini Haggis with neeps and tatties
     Black pudding with apples and mushrooms
     Mini boxty pancakes with smoked salmon
     Mini cottage pie
     Mini fish and chips
     Mini trifle with raspberry and banana
     Mini shortbreads.

           There were bag pipers, dancers and a great harpist.

       In the future if we ever go to an Irish pub we know what to order and what not to order. All in all it was a great experience.

      We also got to attend a ABBA concert at the American Music Theater in Lancaster. The group, I guess you call them a tribute band was super. The original group formed in Sweden in the early 1970's. Abba comes from the first letter of their names, Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn and Anni-frid. They were two married couples. Their last show together was in 1982. Some of their hits were Money, money, money, Frenado and their biggest Dancing Queen. Mamma Mia the stage show and later a movie was based on ABBA songs. Its was a great show.

Thanks for following along.


  1. That Irish tasting event sounds interesting. What, no Guinness?

  2. Definitely need to be careful when you're ordering Irish food. Some of it can be quite strange. I love ABBA's music. That would have been a great show to see.

  3. Looks like an interesting meal and a great show.
