Potato Potahto

The brainstorming begins; I need to find that little writer inside again. I feel more apologetic for being AWOL than anything right now. I think the biggest struggle is continuously finding interesting things to write about. Or more likely, remembering the interesting things I know in time to write them down. To be fair, I've had a ganglion cyst on my wrist for the past four months...TMI?

Okay my latest obsession is potatoes. 
pause for reaction. 
Courtesy of my dear friend Della and her subscription to National Geographic, I have discovered that there are over 4,000 species of potatoes. What have I been doing eating russets and baby potatoes when I could be eating something called Ashes of the Soul?! I swear I haven't felt this deprived since they discontinued my favourite flavour of gelato....(pumpkin pie)
I think these little gems top my Favourites list right now. I haven't had the chance to try any of these morsels yet but so help me, I will. If ANYONE knows a restaurant/market/shop/old lady's basement where I can sample these varieties, please let me know! Makes the Daughter-in-Law Cry needs to be tasted.

if you don't believe it bitches.
