Irish cookbooks 

Here's a tip - you can buy all of these books thru Amazon for a penny each plus shipping. I think they all came to four bucks a piece. All excellent books. 

Moroccan cigars

Purchased from tavlin market, Bellmore Long Island. Minced meat inside a tasty dough. Delicious. The kids loved them as an after school snack.

Bacon on a wire rack

This is a really great way to cook bacon. You don't get all the splatter on the stove top. You need a baking sheet and a wire rack. Preheat the oven to 400°F and put the bacon on the middle rack. This was a very thick cut bacon so it took about 20 or 30 minutes to fully cook. 

Cast iron pizza - again 

I had some dough left over from the last time I made this. Kept it in the freezer. Finally used it up. 550°F middle rack. Pre-cooked ago in olive oil for about five minutes. Put on whatever kind of sauce you want. I did a vegetable pesto and another with pizza sauce and crumbled sausage and pepperoni. Put whatever toppings you want. Throw them back in the oven for another 6 to 8 minutes.

From last St. Patrick's Day

Made a nice Irish breakfast. All the rashers, white pudding and bangers are from Tommy Molononeys.
