Two summers ago, Scott and I had the incredible opportunity to spend three weeks in Ireland. We traveled from one end of the Emerald Isle to the other and I studied Irish cooking at the famous Ballymaloe Cookery School in Shanagary, Ireland. It was one of the highlights of our lives and we wrote a series of posts to share our adventures in one of the most beautiful countries on the face of this earth called Ireland, Off the Beaten Path.
Thought for the day:
I am the vine; you are the branches.
If you abide in me and I in you,
you will bear much fruit;
apart from me, you can do nothing.
