What Day Is It?
Oh boy, everything is starting to run together...my mind has frozen like the computer I brought over! It's been a busy six days since I last blogged. Tom and I took off for the northwest of Ireland this past Saturday. We went to Donegal, completely fell in love with this part of Ireland. It's Yeats country and given the rugged beauty of the landscape I understand his yearning for his homeland when he was away. It is lambing season so the baby lambs were in abundance. We stayed in a castle called Solis Lough Eske. It's situated on the lake Lough Eske and I felt like I was in a fairy tale! It was magical. The drive took 7 1/2 hours to get back on Monday (we had a three day weekend) and it was hard to get back into the swing of things on Tuesday. I completely burned the glazed carrots and today I let my brown yeast bread rise too much. But I did learn how to butcher one of those sweet little lambs that I had spent the weekend ooing and ahhing over...disgusting I know but I am in a cooking course!
