This week in Ireland is National Vegetarian Week. From Monday 4th – Monday 11th June people all over Ireland will be participating in a full on vegetarian only diet. I’m going to take the plunge and yesterday, stocked up on lots of colourful fresh fruit and vegetables for the week. It’s pretty exciting to come up with vibrant new ideas for utilising the mountain of fruit and veg we now have in the pantry.

One of the simple pleasures in life, well in my life, is being able to get a meal together with whatever may be lying around the pantry or in the fridge. This is definitely one of those recipes.
Two weeks ago, I started training in GAA football (Irish Football) with a team here in Perth. The team is made up of mainly Australian girls with a few Irish thrown in the mix. I was so surprised when I arrived in Australia and learned that the girls team of my boyfriend’s football club were mainly Australian. I shouldn’t really have been too surprised seeing as the team I trained with in Qatar had Australian, English, Irish, American, Scottish etc… What does surprise me though, is the influence that GAA is having throughout the world. So much so, that in September of every year, the GAA hold a Tournament known as the Asian Gaelic Games. Last year it was Seoul and the year before, Hong Kong. My boyfriend with his team flew to Hong Kong in 2010 and played against other Irish living abroad in Asian countries. They even had the pleasure of having a drink with Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh. Regarded as one of Ireland’s greatest commentators on Irish gaelic games.
