We were so happy to have 2 of J’s brothers come to visit us over St. Paddy’s Day weekend! The day they arrived J made his signature Schnitzel and chips, which was amazing! I had made many treats for them as I know how important it is to have a well stocked house when the boys are in town! In preparation I had made Nuttela cookies, a loaf sponge cake with almond strawberry and rhubarb filling, two honey cakes and a traditional Irish soda loaf.
The three days were packed with sport, so the majority of the time was spent ordering pints and moving from one watering hole to the next, if not to find alcohol it was to find food!
Brunch and rugby at The Bath Pub!
Onto The Long Stone Pub for the Ireland v France match which was epic!
After the French defeat and therefore the English defeat there was only one thing for it…. BUNSEN for burgers!!!
To end the night we went to the roof terrace of The Marker Hotel and snuggled up in their blankets and they even brought us hot water bottles! The view from up there made bearing the cold worth it!
