Grocery Shopping

Hey guys, who wants to read a blog post about the mundanities of life such as grocery shopping?!

Kerrygold butter was on special at 2 for $6.  Plus Irish cheese 2 for $8. 
The Barry's tea is from Amazon, and no of course I don't drink it, as a proud Dublin woman it is Lyon's all the way. (If I even drank tea that is!)

How and ever, I've never noticed the Carbery name before!
