Well, it's after 3:00 am, I'm back to bed to see if I can finally get some shut-eye! I'll have some coffee on and waitin' when you all wake up in the morning - I'll definitely need it!
Me - I was in bed by 9.30 last night. Making two 12 Days of Christmas tag book cards and now I remember why I only made one last year! By the time I was up to 8 Maids a Milking I couldn't see straight anymore and called it a night. But yes, champ is more a northern speciality. Maybe not specifically Ulster, I think you might get it in Donegal too. Down here you'd be more likely to get colcannon, which is along the same lines but made with curly kale.
When I read your first post I was thinking we must not be very Irish, LOL, I'd say we only have potatoes maybe twice a week. We had a rack of pork with roast potatoes for our Saturday dinner, though. I like a little walnut oil for mine, gives them a lovely flavour.
Hope you got back to sleep, Bridget. It's a big supermarket shop and housework for me this morning, but I'll pop in when I get back from shopping.
