November 13th, 2008 - Old Fashioned Game Supper - Since 1921
Danville, Vermont

The Danville Methodist Game Supper, begun in 1921, is not only the oldest game
supper in Vermont, but considered by many to be one of the finest in the region.
Once featured in Yankee Magazine's "Book of Special New England Days," the
game supper takes place on the Thursday before Thanksgiving at the Danville
United Methodist Church on the southwest corner of the Green. Meat pies are
featured, typically venison, moose, bear, coon, beaver, rabbit, and chicken. The
tables groan with side dishes, squash, potato, glazed carrots, green beans,
cranberry sauce, coleslaw, and pickles, topped off with dinner rolls, coffee, and
homemade dessert pies.

Worth Quoting

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation
is not to utter words, but to live by them."  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

More New England proverbs & quotes

Notes from the Heart...

Each night at dinner our family has a tradition of saying what we each are
grateful for in the day.  This started when the kids were small and would include
utterly charming remarks such as:  "the rock I found" or "the butterfly I saw."  This
tradition, now met with some eye-rolling by our teen and pre-teen, is usually met
with a deadpan "I'm grateful for food," from our teen, who just wants to get on
with eating her meal.  But we believe its important to look at our lives each day,
and express some gratitude for even the smallest things in life.  It's often easy to
come up with appreciation for something that you have, or has happened to you
during the day. Harder yet, as JFK wisely pointed out, is to live by these words.

Storing clay pots for winter, checking houseplants for pests, and proper care of
new trees are some of the gardening tips for this month.

Recipe: Poached Pears
The holiday season is fast approaching, and many of us will be entertaining and
serving special meals. Often, a rich desert is too much after one of these meals,
and one of our favorite choices on these occasions is poached pears.

From our Archives: A Belfast, Maine, Sojourn
I've lived in a large city so long that my memories of growing up in a small town
in North Idaho have become analogous to old photographs in a scrapbook tucked
away in the back of a closet.
