Up in Dublin yesterday I came across these beautiful Oils in Fallon & Byrne. I was initially drawn to the packaging, but then I read the labels......... avocado oil? Pecan oil? em.... roasted Pistachio oil!, along with many others including Roasted Walnut, Sesame and Truffle infused oils. I am sure any of these would add instant panache to some salad leaves.
La Tourangelle , an artisan producer of the finest quality oils" according to their website, which is beautiful, by the way and they also have recipes.
I didn't purchase any and am regretting that already...............next time I will.
However I also saw these........
on sale in Brown Thomas for €15 reduced from €50.
So while Roasted Pistachio Oil could be considered a luxury, in my life wellington boots are a must have! I do of course already own a pair but they are old lacklustre soggy green wellies and a girl needs to feel good while she is shovelling manure into the Roses, so, I decided a pair of these, at this bargain price was definetely in order. But which colour? I like the yellow but not sure, what looks like red in the photograph was actually more of a pink, no didn't want the pink, black a bit dull, blue? yes the blue are nice, a bit different but not so much as to have the Farmer sniggering and calling me a city slicker blow in, ( which he would have every right to do ) so Blue it was !
They have a bit more shape than a regular wellie and are ever so comfy, watch out weeds I am getting prepared.
