Would you believe it?

The last Friday of March came and went for the LBC, Conrad our leader had dipped into the hat and drew out the topic for the day.

Conspiracy Theories

There are many theories going the rounds about Grannymar:

  • She has keeled over and fallen off her perch.
  • She has tired of the LBC group and stomped off in a huff.
  • She has gone toyboy chasing.  (I wonder if toyboy chasing might be the new Olympic sport?)

Let me assure you that none of the above are true.  I took my aunt on holiday for a few days. The holiday for me has stretched into a week and since I am having such a good time who knows when it will end.

Now scotch that rumour…

I did not wear out any Toyboy!

I saw him in action earlier…

These guys were in the grounds of the Castle Oaks House Hotel located 7miles north east of Limerick city on the banks of the river Shannon in the parish of Castleconnell. It is surrounded by gardens and wooded walks along the river.

Rush hour in Castleconnell!

On my travels I managed to catch up with some bloggers in their own space.  That is a story for another day.  I’ll be back.

Food Monday ~ Sausage & Tomato Patties

Sausage & Tomato Patties

450g sausage meat
½ teaspoon chilli flakes (optional)
3 tablespoons tomato chutney
Oil for frying
English muffins
mustard for serving

In a bowl, mix the sausage meat with the chilli flakes (if using) and tomato chutney.  The easiest way to do this is with your hands.  Then form into 8 patties and chill.  When ready to cook, fry over a medium heat for about five minutes on each side, until cooked through*.
Serve  with toasted muffins, extra chutney or a dollop of mustard.

* You can bake these in the oven if you wish.  Preheat the oven 200°C and cook on a lightly oiled baking sheet for 15 minutes, turning halfway through.
