It's been a quick minute since we last blogged, but there's no time like the present! Technically, St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow, but we wanted to make sure you had time to get the ingredients for the big day!

We hope that you have a great holiday weekend filled with everything Irish and complete with green beer!

It's time to get schooled on the many benefits of potatoes! Earlier this fall, the United States Potato Board released a press release to kick off the school year and educate students about the nutrition of potatoes.
