Food in Ireland

The Irish have such interesting names for things, don’t you think? Like mashed potatoes and sausages, for instance. If you don’t speak the lingo, at least now you know what bangors and mash is.

David Pursehouse

Also, Freckle Bread is simple raisin bread; Black Pudding is made with pig’s blood but some people say it tastes amazing. Maybe I’ll try it next time; Soda Bread is a quick bread made with ra

Quotes by Cindy Thomson  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“She lifted the book to her nose. A book had a smell more soothing than any of Mrs. Hawkins's herbs. There was nothing like a good story to take her out of a world she didn't much like.”
Cindy Thomson, Annie’s Stories

“He was an average-looking, hard working fellow who was more comfortable reading about people in books than socializing with them.”
Cindy Thomson, Annie’s Stories

“Not all those who wander are lost.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“The Celt, and his cromlechs, and his pillar-stones, these will not change much – indeed, it is doubtful if anybody at all changes at any time. In spite of hosts of deniers, and asserters, and wise-men, and professors, the majority still are adverse to sitting down to dine thirteen at a table, or being helped to salt, or walking under a ladder, of seeing a single magpie flirting his chequered tale. There are, of course, children of light who have set their faces against all this, although even a newspaperman, if you entice him into a cemetery at midnight, will believe in phantoms, for everyone is a visionary, if you scratch him deep enough. But the Celt, unlike any other, is a visionary without scratching.”
William Butler Yeats

“Fiction reveals truth that reality obscures.”
Jessamyn West
