A kaleidoscope of Irish summer
Maybe I have writers block ….
Because everytime I sit down to write … one of my four munchkins comes in and BLOCKS me from what I am trying to do.
(The HSE does not allow us to put photos of our two foster kids on the blog which is why you only ever see two kids. The other two are gorgeous, happy, health, smiley girls. Picture it, ok?)
Someone around here is ALWAYS within one minute of ‘dying of the hunger’ so we try our best to keep a lot of vegetarian food ready to go. If they are really hungry – they will eat it and love it and come back for more.
A new favourite of the children’s is grated beets (raw) on their salad. They also like ’em roasted in a bit of bacon fat.
When we let them off their leash and take them in to town for a bite to eat they are making fairly smart choices. At least no one is begging to go to Mickey D’s anymore Chef!
I did not think they would eat this – but they did. And now they want it every day.
I made these ‘extra’ hot so they would not like ’em … and that backfired too.
The chef has one of the best – and easiest – recipes for rice pudding. This one will make a great breakfast treat for the kids when the weather turns cold.
This is one of my favourite images. I know it is in B & W … the colour one looks HIDEOUS.
First time making Paella – the Chef makes the best darn dinner we have ever had. The secret is in the rice. Run out and buy The Sunday Times today. They have the recipe.
I know. I still do not like – or eat – chocolate. BUT, I am told by many that this is the best brownie ever.
We are delighted to have been long-listed in THREE categories for this years Blog Awards of Ireland and I cannot tell you how freaking excited this makes me. I know the lists are indeed very long and the chances of making it to the short list are very slim – but let me tell you folks – it is the best feeling in the world just to be nominated.
Thank you readers for making this my favourite place to be, right here, in Blogtopia.
Those are all the WiseWords I have for today, ’tis Sunday after all!

I am a native Galway girl that seems to be drawn to professions that rhyme with 'err'. Writer, Mother, Restauranteur, Wedding Planner, Dishwasher, Grass cutter, Cocktail maker. I suppose you could say I am a well rounded entrepreneur.
