BennigansMahon Point SC.021-4515682
Bennigans styles itself on an American diner or pub, serving up the wings, burgers and sandwiches you’d expect here. Walls are plastered with posters and tvs showing music videos. Sunday to Thursday they run a Movie meal deal, main course and a ticket for the cinema upstairs for €20 a head. Somehow it just fails. The burger I had there last night, their BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger was pretty flat and lifeless. Continue reading »
This is still a fairly experimental dish, but the idea is similar to the duck salad I posted earlier this month, but without the noodles. It’s really easy, quick and spicey! If you have a cold this will really clear those sinuses! Continue reading »

Boqueria6 Bridge StCork
This is a tapas bar on Bridge Street I’ve been meaning to try out for ages. Especially since Ursula thought I called it a topless bar. Even after I repeated myself. Damn Monaghan accents. Even without the toplessness it’s still worth a visit.It’s usually packed at the weekends and you have a long wait to get a seat, but on the Tuesday night we went it was quiet enough.We ordered five mains and two desserts and they were all good. Very good. Continue reading »
Eating porridge in the morning is one of the most perfect ways to set your body up for the rest of the day. It is high in complex carbohydrates and provides the body with slow releasing energy. In the last few years porridge has slowly become one of the hottest super foods, and understandably so, the oats have so many health benefits that they are often linked to long and healthy lifestyles.

Cookes Restaurant,14 South William Street , Dublin, Ireland
A quality restaurant, very tasty and inventive food.
We went out for dinner in Dublin on Thursday evening, to celebrate Sofie getting a job! We hadn’t booked anywhere so we ended up going for a bit of a walk to find a place we both liked!
After a walk down South William St, up Georges St, and through Georges St. Continue reading »

Well, it’s been a weird summer. Constant rain and clouds meant being confined to the house as the husband has the car. It meant using the imagination to keep the kids occupied. It meant a touch of SAD! I know I said before that I liked the weather here, but three months of constant gloom had even me wishing for the heat we experienced last summer in St. Louis. Well at least for a day or two! However the miserable weather also meant an abundance of delicious local strawberries! Continue reading »

However, in our windy climate it seemed a better optionat the time.
Time has proved this was a wise choice.

I was away for the past few days for what is fast becoming my monthly trip to Sweden! Just to give you a brief history about my obsession with the home of europop, I love the Eurovision and in Sweden unlike Ireland it is widely accepted to enjoy that style of music, they also produce the best of it!

Also of note, is the fact that I am not getting emails and some of mine are not being received. Back in my working days outlook was my best friend. Since installing the latest version it has become my sworn enemy. Continue reading »
