    Last night was fried mushrooms, boiled potato and tarter sauce. Potatoes were fresh dug and the mushrooms were locally foraged. My favorite meal... had that with great friends!

    I am excited about this challenge! I have decided this year for Christmas I will wrap presents in Furoshiki! Cloth wraps that can be reused as napkins, wall art, in quilting, or in wrapping and carrying things! Wraps can be bandannas, scarves, re-purposed sheets!
