Congratulations Aoife, we're looking forward to hear you play on a stage near us soon!

Rosie & Jim are humbled and thrilled to Make-A-Wish come true for Danielle.

Make A Wish - Cabin for Danielle
Make A Wish - Cabin for Danielle

Danielle, aged 4, from Sligo, is living with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. She loves playing and really wanted a playhouse for her and her siblings/friends to play in. She specifically said green because she likes the idea of a green playhouse in the garden. Her favourite colour is pink and she loves dancing and singing. She can’t really travel and shares a room with her sister so having a space of her own is what this wish is all about.

"Thanks to the generosity of Rosie & Jim, Make-A-Wish were able to get her an amazing and spacious Summerhouse and include fantastic interior furnishings to turn it into a cosy, multi-functional space. On the day of the reveal, Danielle’s mum, with the help of our amazing volunteers Martina and John, threw a party for Danielle and the whole family, where everyone got to have a go at the Karaoke machine and some arts and crafts! Thanks again for your support, as you can see you have made a little girl extremely happy!"

"A big Thank You to the generous folks at Rosie & Jim who provide a delicious range of chicken products to The Ronald McDonald House every week. Today we enjoyed their scrumptious Tikka Chicken wraps!
#Yummy #Cooking4Families #KeepingFamiliesClose"

 

About Ronald McDonald House Charities

The Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation care and support for 20 families every night while their seriously ill children are inpatient or receiving care in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.

The House enables families to stay together so that they can be with their sick child at what is a very traumatic time for them all.

The first,16 bedroom, Ronald McDonald House is situated on the grounds of Our Lady’s Hospital and our smaller 4 bedroom House is directly across the road at St Mary’s Drive.

Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mum and dad close by for love and support.  Ronald McDonald House program provides a Home for families so they can stay close by their hospitalised child at very little cost.  The House works on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.

And be sure to Follow the great work they do on Facebook.

We are thrilled to announce the winner of our Light Up a Life Facebook competition.

Congratulations Fiona Staunton and family from Co. Westmeath on winning €1000 for your chosen charity - Aoibheann's Pink Tie!

Fiona also wins a sumptuous Christmas hamper with festive favourites including a whole host of tempting tipples.

And, as if that's not enough, she also receives tickets for a family of four to The Sound Of Music in The Grand Canal Theatre.

About Aoibheann’s Pink Tie

Aoibheann’s Pink Tie was set up in 2010 after Jimmy Norman’s daughter, Aoibheann, passed away. During their long battle with cancer, Jimmy met with a lot of parents going through the trauma of having a child with cancer, and more specifically identified with the financial burden that inevitably follows diagnosis. They are registered with the Irish Cancer Society and affiliated with St. John’s Oncology Ward in Crumlin Hospital. Olympic gold medal champion Katie Taylor is their charity ambassador.

So what does Aoibheann’s Pink Tie do? They provide financial and practical help to those families in need of it. This will hopefully allow the families the ability to focus on their child and working through their illness. Families are often lost in the mix when their children go through this battle, but it’s not just the child that gets cancer, it’s the whole family as each is affected and must struggle.

Aoibheann’s Pink Tie raise funds through various events and fundraisers and use this to support families who are recommended to by the senior social worker in St. John’s Ward Crumlin Hospital.

2 Gluten Free Rosie & Jim Garlic Chicken Kiev
Potatoes, peeled and chopped in half
1 or 2 sprigs of Spring Onion chopped – the white side only
Splash of Milk
Tablespoon of Butter
10-12 Medium sized Asparagus, chop the ends off
Lemon juice, freshly squeezed
Olive Oil
Salt / Pepper

Heat the oven to 190oC or 170oC for fan assisted ovens.

Place the Rosie & Jim Chicken Kiev’s on a baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes (35-40 minutes if frozen).  Set a timer, just in case!

While they are cooking, chop the potatoes into chucks so that they will cook in 30 minutes.

Boil or steam the potatoes – whichever you prefer, until cooked.

Top Tip - * If your family love mashed potato and you hate mashing, we highly recommend you invest in a Potato Ricer. Smooth mashed potato in minutes without the hard work - it’s a very handy gadget for the kitchen!*

Chop the Spring Onion thinly – using only the white end of the onion.

Steam the Asparagus for 5-6 minutes. If they are very thick they may need another minute, but you want them al dente and crisp.

When the potato is cooked, mash the potatoes in a pan; add a splash of milk, the butter and season with salt and pepper. When it’s nice and creamy add in most of the Spring Onion, but keep a little for plating up.

When the Asparagus are cooked, but still have a little bite, take them off the heat and add a pinch of salt, pepper and a little drizzle of olive oil.

The Rosie & Jim Garlic Chicken Kiev should be ready now, so take them out of the oven and plate up –
Spoon some of the creamy mashed potato on the plate.
Add the Chicken Kiev on top.
Place the Asparagus on the plate and squeeze a little Lemon Juice over it.
Sprinkle the remaining Spring Onion on top

Serve up to your waiting loved one and wait to hear the Mmmmmmmm...!
