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!
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!
