In 2007 I completely missed fall because I took a trip to New York in October. The leaves in Missoula fell while I was gone and the leaves in New York stayed green until the week after I left. It is one of the biggest lessons of my life. During another year, fall set in early and it was never warm enough for the leaves to change, so they stayed green even after they fell off the trees. It was weird. Anyway, I think the leaves usually change around here in October and these warm days are promising for a wonderful array of colors and some good jumping piles.

Some things I like to do around this time are watch the night sky, switch out the summer menu for some more hearty feasts and hot cocoa, and tell stories - especially ghost stories.

For awhile all the cooking shows were telling people not to wash their mushrooms because they would absorb too much water and lose a lot of flavor. Then Alton Brown (of Food Network) devoted a "Good Eats" episode to mushrooms and showed scientifically that they do absorb water, but it's like a gram's worth - and besides, they are mostly water anyway (think about a dehydrated mushroom verses a plump, fresh one), so it doesn't make much difference in the flavor.

Interestingly, I've noticed a complete shift from every other cooking show (I watch a lot) telling you not to wash your mushrooms before that episode, to absolutely no cooking shows making a peep on the subject afterwards...

It was Perugia! So good. I just found out last week that the owner's son owns the Silk Road! Can't wait to eat there now.

Thanks, Chris. That suddenly made everything clear!

Taco Del Sol has won the best lunch for under $6 vote every year that I've lived here. Their burritos are fantastic, but a little known secret is that their tacos are a good meal size and much cheaper.

The El Cazador truck is great late at night. The food is really flavorful and you get more than you would expect for the price.

Front Street Noodles and Wraps is another place to fill up on good food for cheap. I also like that you can customize your own bowls.

I haven't eaten at the Catalyst since it has changes owners, but they used to have a pretty good soups or sandwiches for around $5.

Is anyone still interested in this? As I explained in the gleaning thread, I am down for the season, but it would be so awesome if a group of people could get this sort of harvest walk going this year. Maybe it could be something that would happen a couple of times of year as different foods ripen?

This sounds great! Sadly I won't make it after being hit by a car last weekend. Urgh. I hope everyone has fun!

There is actually a lady down at the river market who sells apples, wool, and spinning lessons! She was talking about an indigo dying class as well. Can't remember the name of her company, but I will look around for the flyer.
