An early afternoon trip to Lilliput Stores in Stoneybatter on Sunday morning. Denise and Simon are always raving about how pretty it is, the food is such good quality and at a great price. I can tell you I wasn’t let down when I walked through the door into the cosy looking shop. The shelves are stocked with fine, artisan foods and the deli is full of delicious cheeses and sauces.
After a bit of dilley dallying, I picked up some fresh organic rocket, sun dried tomatoes and olives marinated in garlic and thyme. Simon got some Irish organic pork sausages made with red wine and french herbs, hummus and organic eggs, porridge and fruit. The price was obviously more than you’re going to pay in your local supermarket shop, but I truly believe that when you buy fresh, organic, local produce it is worth every cent. Out of our shopping we had 3 delicious meals and smiles all round.
After the tummies were packed with banana porridge and scrambled eggs we packed a bag full of goodies for a picnic. First, we headed off to town in search of the forgotten soup blender. Picked one up and then trotted off to the Botanical Gardens in Glasnevin to enjoy the beautiful Sunday afternoon. The sun was shining and it was such a glorious day.
When we arrived there was an orchestra playing so we found a spot in the sun and joined the crowd. Pulled out the grub and got crackin’ on some sambos. Beautiful hummus with sun -dried tomatoes, fresh rocket and Port Salut. Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon lunch.
We wandered through the gardens admiring the flowers and soaking up some sunshine. Getting lost in the maze of sunflowers and lazing on the grass.
What better way to enjoy a sun-day!
We like sunflowers…..a lot!!!!
