Beware This Label

Dear Mouse,

I bought these yesterday. How could I not??




Could you resist that label? There they lounged on the Whole Foods shelf, wearing a suggestive, see-through yellow mesh bag. A gorgeous, knobbly mix of, yes, tiny red, yellow, and purple potatoes winked at me from within, suggesting we go somewhere more comfortable. Before you could say "packaging" I was in the kitchen, roasting them with olive oil, herbs and salt (425 for 30 min). It wasn't til way after dinner that I looked closer and realized they were from MICHIGAN. FLOWN here to seduce me, when I have the Union Square Greennmarket selling LOCAL potatoes around the corner. Oh the shame. In my defense, the market wasn't open yesterday. But, apparently, neither were my morals.

Love,
The Boo
