Yay! I’m going to New York!

OK, there will the bothersome matter of having to do some work while I’m there. But, inbetween-times, there will be exploring and shopping and eating. Mmmmmm. Lots of eating, I hope…

See you in about a week’s time 🙂


We’re getting a farmers market! Or rather, according to the Irish Farmers Markets website, it’s re-opening.

From Wednesday 24 October and every Wednesday thereafter, there’ll be a market at Manor Mills Shopping Centre, Maynooth, between 10am and 4pm.


Wheeeeeeeee! We’re properly interweb connected – broadband and everything. Very fancy pants. Although apparently everyone has it these days and I’m just behind the times…

Anyway, it means I don’t have to put my pics on to the computer to transfer them to the USB to take them down to the locak internet place to load them up on to the blog.

No – I can just click a couple of buttons from the comfort of our kitchen and… voila!

And, with another click of the magic button, I can reveal… the kitchen sink!

The kitchen units aren’t really blue – that’s just the protective film – they’re really white. And if you’re wondering why some of the doors haven’t been added yet… Well, that’s a combination of laziness, bad door-hanging skills and a couple of missing pieces. But we’ll get there. At least we’ve got enough bits and bobs sorted out to function and, more importantly, cook delicious things.

So that means all the excuses for not posting about what I’m cooking have disappeared. Darn.


I'm short of stature (a family trait) but big of appetite (also a family trait). If you're reading this then you're probably big of appetite too. Or a member of my family (hello Mum).
