Dinner in the 'Garden'

Wheeler and Company had a rather premature al fresco dinner in our garden this evening - with the new (to us) sunlight streaming in the downstairs window, our basement patio was flooded warmth and brightness which was too much to resist.  So, ignoring the backdrop of the few pieces of heavy machinery and large mounds of rubble, we had roast chicken served with a salad of broad beans, broccoli and roast red pepper with shards of Oisin Farmhouse organic mature goats cheese (made by Rose and Rochus van der Vaard, Kilmallock, Co. Limerick) ...  it was all really delicious.  The cheese really made the salad and it is worth a mention - I buy this particular cheese almost every Saturday from the Dublin Food Coop in St Andrews Resource Centre on Pearse Street -  it is delicious both in a raw salad or as part of a cheese plate ...

This was the first, but I look forward to many more evenings to come out here.
