Island Goodies

This monring, as always, on our mid-day walk Nicky and I passed by SPUD 102.2 the radio station next to us. One of the employees was out on the front lawn with a station display. Nicky got his expected pat and I got a bag of potatoes!

I mean what could be more Island than a bag of potatoes? Well how about a bag of Island goodys!

Not a russet in sight but I was more than pleased with gifts from Receiver Coffee, the Preserve Company, Dairy Isle (ADL), The Great Canadian Soap Company, Honibe, and Cows. All great Island products.

When the Island was opened to visitors from the Atlantic Bubble (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland) the gang at SPUD welcomed everyone at the Bridge and Ferry Dock with a selection of Island products. And they’ve decided that as winter approaches it was a good idea to remind Islanders of what we have available to us right here at home.

Nora was a bit disappointed that there were no doggie biscuits but Papa and GrosPa were pleased with their haul and the reminder to support our local producers.

Laurent tells me that he is planning to post the Potato Chocolate Cake recipe if I am planning to make it!

Another word for October 16th is:
Local /ˈlōk(ə)l/: [1. noun 2. adjective]
1. An inhabitant of a particular area or neighbourhood.
2. Belonging or relating to a particular area or neighbourhood, typically exclusively so.
Late Middle English: from late Latin localis, from Latin locus ‘place’.
Now more than every it is important that we support local when ever we can, where ever we might live.

  1. Papa et Grospa: qui est qui? L’internet au grand complet s’interroge…
    Vous en avez de la chance d’être dans votre Bulle; en ce moment, j’écris ce texte sous un ciel gris, avec petit vent plutot frais, assis dehors avec mon cappuccino car on n’a plus le droit de s’asseoir à l’intérieur des cafés/restos!

    1. Bien sûr, je suis Papa, et Ti-gus est GrosPa. Malheureusement, la situation au Nouveau-Brunswick peut changer notre bulle.
