So, off to Lidl in Cavan to do a bit of shopping … and one of my favourites is in again. The Halloween Barm Brack. Would prefer a Samhain Barm Brack, but there you go. Anyway, that Best Before date is a joke, right? Then again I could eat this delicacy any day, as good as a good German Rosinenbrot. Even Herself, who abhors raisins, currants and related stuff likes this. So, get a few.

And while we’re at it – on our visit the calendar had just changed to October, obviously high time to get out the Christmas stuff. “Far too early,” Herself said, only to grab a pack of Dominosteine (it’s a German thing) with the immortal words, “but one should eat Dominosteine throughout the year, I think.”
