I did not know that Vancouver was SPUD grown' country. Are you faking us out? Now, SPUD HUGS maken' country well...that I have not a single question about. And those gr888, cute, adoreable cups to hug those minis in...PRECIOUS.

Enjoy your week, my friend! I would LOVE to have a copy of this book! How exciting for you!♥

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I like my spuds any way I can get them! I've always been a huge fan and I truly think I would die if I weren't allowed to have them any more. I grew up eating mashed potatoes covered with (real) butter and cucumber relish. Probably an acquired taste!!

Poetry and Wild Roses said...

This is Sooooo adorable! And I am a big fan of those magazines :-)
Have a wonderful day.

♥coco rose♥ said...

Oh goodness me, how great are they! LOVE THEM TO BITS! I love potatoes any which way, just love them. I could eat them all day long actually. Such a versatile food.....and I just need to try a spud hug!

We start the term next week and it will be a shock after a lazy summer holiday!

Take care!

silly old suitcase said...

I like potatoes cooked, baked, fried, smashed.
Over here in Holland we eat a lot of these fellows!
I must admit i'm a fan of goldbrown fries :-)
Seeing these spud hugs maybe can chance my mind, i really have to taste them...but you have to send me a such a nice cup of those to me by mail...

...together with a copy of the new Autumn issue?

tinajo said...

It looks lovely and I´d love to taste some! :-)

GardenofDaisies said...

Oh golly, any food would taste great in a pretty fabric covered cup like that! So pretty!!! Spud Hugs sound so cute! I don't know if Mashed-Potatoes-With-Gravy or Scalloped-Potatoes would ever forgive me if I gave their first and second place standing away to any other spud, cute or not. :-) But being a potato (and doughnut) lover, I say bring on the competition!!
Congratulations on being published again! I would love to enter your giveaway!!

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

emilyandtheyellowhouse said...

Congratulations! Those doughnuts look wonderful! I'm a potato fan. One of the ways I like them are cut up, tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted in the oven.

Shannon Jones said...

I love homegrownspuds!

she dreams big! said...

I just know that spuds in a pretty cup have absolutely NO carbs, right? I'd rather eat a potato than almost anything! And I bet there are good photos and recipes for potatoes in the mag! Count me in please!

Those Spud Hugs look delish... and the sweet fabric covered containers are adorable, it would make eating anything in them feel like a Party!

Susan said...

I remember family vacations when my uncle would go to a small mom and pop store and bring back fresh little doughnuts every morning. They were the best I ever had! They weren't presented as beautifully as yours but they were sure delish! Is the recipe in the magazine? They'd be perfect for brunch, now wouldn't they? *yummers!*
I am gearing up for the new school year as I know you are. Room prep and meetings this week. Meet Your Teacher Day next Tuesday and classes begin on Wednesday. Here.we.go!
Blessings!

I never heard of the magazine but I would love to receive one it sounds awesome!

Maria said...

HI Koralee!
I love these cups. I also love the way muffins and cupcakes look in liners like this. Chris' french fries were served in a wrapped liner at a restaurant we stopped at last week. They looked extra special that way! Spud hugs is such a cute name for your potato treats.
How were your first two days at school? I am back tomorrow for another day of meetings. It's also orientation day for the fifth graders. Oh they'll be so nervous and excited at the same time!

I wish you a wonderful week ahead ~
Thank you for all the JOY here at Bluebird Notes*

Marilyn said...
