I don’t know what the weather was like wherever you are, but here it was what they call in North Mayo ‘a woeful day’. We had winds of over 140 kilometers an hour, rain, hailstones – all I felt like doing today was curling up on the sofa to watch coverage of Barak Obama kissing babies and drinking Guinness in Moneygall and eating comfort food.
And when it comes to comfort food there’s nothing better on a cold horrible day than a thick rich beefy stew that you can fling into the oven for hours and forget about till it’s ready. This is a tweak I came up with on the more traditional beef in Guinness, which I find a wee bit bitter. You can tweak it back and include the Guinness if you prefer, I won’t be offended.
