Spud Sunday: And The Blog Goes On

Another year, another blog awards over. No gong this time but plenty of cold consolatory chips.


A Win-Wine Situation

My entry for this year’s Eating Your Words Challenge is all about eggs. It’s also about Easter goodies to give away, courtesy of Yellow Tail wines.


Spud Sunday: Wish Me Good Looks

More excitement as the Spud once again makes it to the finals of the Irish Blog Awards.

Another excursion to the west for Potato Day at the Organic Centre in Leitrim, where potato expert Dave Langford talks of old potatoes and new threats to their survival.
