Chicken- plucked or coloured?

21 Feb

As some of you may or may not know, I’m doing Shave or Dye 2013. It’s a fundraiser for the Irish Cancer Society. If you want to read up more about Shave or Dye- there are details here:



Anyways- last year I shaved my head and raised money for this great cause but this year I thought I would do it a little differently and put the decision in someone elses hands- you!!!

I am going to let you decide what happens to my precious hair.



a) Shaved

b) Dye it silver- in an attempt to become more at one with the blog- The Silver David. (Dyed properly as opposed to that silly spray on stuff in a can.)



If you would like to donate to my Shave or Dye effort, you can do so here:



I’ll be shaving/dyeing my hair in early March. I’ll let the poll run until then.  Pictures will follow.


Thanks 🙂



Pancake Recipe

21 Feb

It’s Pancake Tuesday, and I thought I would share the recipe I use most often. I will state at this juncture it is not my recipe, full credit has to go to Ray D’Arcy (Senior) father of Ray D’Arcy who presents on Today FM.


Every year, Ray has his father on the show on Pancake Tuesday to go through the recipe with listeners, and once I tried this recipe I never looked at another.



8 oz flour

2 eggs

Pinch of salt or sugar (depending on whether they are to be savoury or sweet)

1 pint of liquid (Two thirds milk to one third water)


You sift the flour and the pinch of salt/sugar, beat the eggs, and then add the eggs to the sifted flour. You will get a crumby mix. Now slowly add the liquid, a little at a time, whisking constantly so you get a consistent mixture with no lumps. Then let the mixture sit for 15/30 mins. Whisk before use.

Use a little oil on some kitchen paper to grease the pan, and cook on a medium to high heat. Enjoy!

What do you like on your pancakes? Comment below!
