... in a very clean and quiet KOA (never would have thought it). We gave ourselves the treat of a very casual morning after such a long haul from The Big Easy (aka LA).

... I missed the potato gems the first time I searched for them because there are so few types of frozen potatoes in the freezer at the store here. On the other hand, there are so many different brands and different flavours within each brand of ice cream available that the ice cream section fills an aisle at the store.
