    Hi Caroline, my first visit to your blog, I saw your comment on Barbaras blog and as a fellow Irish resident decided to check your blog out. Your cottage looks gorgeous a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of Dublin. Lucky you having all those fruit trees in your garden. I love being given fresh fruit from friends gardens it always makes dishes taste fresher and better.The Haira sounds delicious and definitely something I am going to make, I’ll be off to buy the ingredients tomorrow!

    I know what you mean, Auds. When the nights start drawing in, I want a big pot of soup on the cooker and believe me, this Harira makes a Big Pot of Soup! Halve the amounts mentioned above if you have less than the aforementioned six starving bookclub ladies + Boyfriend although it is the kind of thing that would sit happily around in the fridge for a few days.Thanks for your compliments on our cottage, Beccy, and you’re right – it’s wonderful to have your own fruit, right there in the garden! This weekend we spend four nights there, plenty apples were snacked on and I also cooked that cake that Barbara blogged about for family lunch on Sunday. Nice to have something other than apple tarts to make with our current apple glut!

    Been racking my brain about the three tier cooling rack, you can get them from Lakeland. They cost £14.99, and are well worth it!www.lakelandlimited.co.uk/productlist.aspx/cookbake/baking?pg=2

  5. Thanks for that Beccy. I’ll take a look there and see if they deliver to Ireland. It could be a very expensive trip if they do!
