A lovely lunch with lovely friends

My old flatmates Anna and Ben are probably the most beautiful couple I know. They will make lovely babies if they get round to it. At the moment they’re house sitting in the above house, which is as lovely on the inside as it is on the outside. Anna and Ben (or Benanna as they’re known to me) are leaving Dublin next month to go live in the really big smoke, London. Perhaps they will become massive stars through the power of their band Herons!. They deserve to be massive through the power of their myspace Biog alone.

So we had a lovely lunch with them in their Dalkey church on a really sunny March day.


We had a delicious leek and potato bake. Ben sliced up the potatoes super thin – you could even say wafer thin – and Anna arranged them with the leeks, blobs of cashel blue and butter about the place.  Then she poured over slightly heated cream, and knocked it in the oven for about 45 minutes I think. Maybe Anna will let us know in the comments below. Go on, ya big leek! Leave a comment!


Look how lovely it looks!


As a goodbye present, I gave Ben his favourite album EVER on vinyl.  The mp3 for this post is the title track from that album. Go buy the whole album.  It’s really good.
