Folksy Friday #31


There's only 8 weeks left until little Beans due date, time is flying by so quickly now and we are seriously trying to get organised...not prepared, I honestly don't know if we'll ever fully be prepared!!! :/

Its such an exciting time but Im a bundle of nerves too.  Im getting less and less sleep as I get bigger and just lie there thinking about what still needs to be sorted.  Ive been getting up a stupid o'clock just to clear the fridge out or brush the floor, I search for things that need to be cleaned... I just hope this isnt a sign that Bean is gonna put in an early show as I still have 3 weeks of work to go!!

FADGE (Irish Potato Bread)

No traditional Ulster Fry is complete without this delicious little thing. Fadge is also known as a potato “farl” from the Gaelic word “fardel” meaning “four parts”... it's also a great way to use up your left over mashed potato!!


  • 1 lb freshly cooked potato
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter (margarine)
  • 3/4-1 cup flour  


Mash the potatoes (make sure there are no lumps)

 Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with the butter.

Knead in enough flour to make a pliable dough (usually 3/4 cup is enough)

Roll out to about 1/2" thick and cut into quarters.

Heat a non stick skillet and brown on each side 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with butter.
  Happy St. Patrick's Day!
