Weekend Shenanigans

This weekend road trip up north to Leitrim county: stopping for some sunny D, cafe stop over, kids messing about at a party, nature, cats hiding in the shade ( too hot), KP stealing ice cream…

Lotus Root Chips

Never heard of these before. Anyone know what they taste like? Looks yummy!

How can you crave something you’ve never had before? But I did.

A Guardi officer getting himself some fish and chips at the very popular Quinlan’s fish shop in Tralee. If you’re ever there, make sure you get yourself some. Yummy!
