Lamb Kofta Curry

Welcome one and all to my very first food post from Ireland. Feeling very happy and in spite of the obvious startup hiccups here and there, we are settling in very nicely.

Have been indulging in cheap (but gooooood!) eats, and this week also sees me and R. going a bit mental in TESCO like we never dreamed we would.

Cornwall for now (Part I)

So R. and I are off on another trip, this time to the southwest of England. This trip is only the first half of our real destination, which is Ireland. Three weeks of R&R and then life will start to get serious again, so we better make the most of this one. Am writing this article now as I sit in our rented house on the coast facing the Celtic sea, facing Ireland … our new home.
