The winter Foragers Dinner Club dinner does not disappoint. Persimmons are largely to blame. Winter is a tough season for the forager. Winter foraging often means freezer foraging, or otherwise reaching for preserved foods foraged and found in an earlier season. Dried goods hold up well, along with pickled, cured, and otherwise preserved foods, but even in November there are still late fruits and nuts, and herbs from the garden.

A story of how square dance culture is surviving the test of time, because nerds. My favorite square dance t-shirt says something something like: "Square Dancing - it's not just for nerds anymore!" There's a graphic of a dancing couple ducking under an arch raised by another couple. Underneath the graphic is a paranthetical: "(still mostly for nerds)." I know, I know -- you had me figured for a nerd at "favorite square dance t-shirt." So yeah, I square dance and I love it.
