Ireland 2009, Part Three: The North

After Galway, it was time to head up to dear old Donegal. We stayed at a cozy little B&B just outside of the town, and our hosts were just the prototypical Irish B&B owners. The gentleman owned a store in town that sold all sorts of wool products (we bought new winter hats for the […]

Ireland 2009, Part Two: Galway

After leaving Doolin, we drove up to Galway. A bit of a contrast, since Doolin was tiny, barely even a town. But it had a pub, so I guess that qualifies as a town. Galway is a small city though, and it's thanks to that fact that I got to watch my Spartans play in […]

CSA Discoveries

Lisa had a good idea last night, to make a list of all the things we have made using items we received from our CSA share. In particular, it's most interesting to list things we never would have made of our own volition if we hadn't gotten the key ingredients from the CSA. The list […]
