Haven't had so much fun in a long time...
Please do read up on Roundup... you will be horrified... and on Monssanto..
start with Michael Pollan - he has 2 excellent books about food - real
As for the Irish, theyre great...
Did you ever try a 7 course gourmet Irish meal?
A spud and a sixpack.... ;-)
I love potatoes. There are something like 306 varieties... and we only
see two in the market (here, at least) white and yellow. How stupid
people can be sometimes. Just ask your local farmer or reseller what
kind of potatoes he is selling... the tastes, textures color and uses
are absolutely wonderful. :-)
