Sunday in Dublin

It's nice to leave Athlone everywhile and get back to the "big shmoke". Here's what I did last Sunday.

My sister and I attended the "Call A Spade A Spade" demonstration. This was to show solidarity with Rory O'Neill and to oppose homophobia.

We estimated the crowd to be a few hundred but there were reports online of over a thousand. It it had been a 'pro-life' rally the estimates would probably have been in the tens of thousands, lol!

 Senator Norris gave a really motivational speech which got the crowd whooping and cheering. He thoroughly is an amazing public speaker.

We went to Synnotts for one drink and to watch the rugby. I had a vodka with diet coke but Enid mixed her vodka with tonic water because she's off artificial sweeteners. I couldn't do that!!
We left Synnotts pretty quickly because the vibe wasn't great and our view wasn't good either.

We took a quick trip to Starbucks, before which Enid was panicking because she had no cream to put in her coffee. Luckily I remembered that I had read online about people ordering butter in Starbucks to bulletproof their coffee. We got two pats of butter each, it was lovely and creamy :)

Enid the imposter used my name to order the coffees. She's just jealous ;)

I then popped home for a bit to see my parents. I randomly decided to ask my dad for a lend of a ukulele so I one here in Athlone with me. I'm already addicted, it's so easy to learn to play and sounds so cute! It's ruingng my nails though- I always need my nails to be perfectly manicured!!

Fat Bombs for Hitting Your Macros on the Keto Diet!

To maintain ketosis on the keto diet your intake needs to consist of about 70%. I up my fat intake by eating these yummy yummy fat bombs!

Here's the ingredients:

I'm not really sure about measurements- I normally just whip them all together according to taste!
I don't always use the goose fat, I just had some hanging around so I threw it in. Also I use very little sweetener, like less than a teaspoon!
Make sure to use unsalted butter!

I bought all of these ingredients in Tesco- I love their 85% chocolate it's so rich and has an amazing toasted aftertaste. 

I found these cute heart shaped chocolate molds in the euro shop so I made heart-shaped bombs- Just in time for Valentine's day!

Toss them in the freezer for a while until they are rock hard. Then you can take them out off the molds. I normally store them in the freezer afterwards also- They are very melty, after all, they're basically fat!

 Here's the finished result: How cure and appetising are these?!

Enjoyed best accompanied with bulletproof coffee of course!!
