Mary Ray Cate has sent
the beautiful Haiku poetry for the holiday season.

On the hillside lie
Grey skeletons of pinons
Cradling new green trees.

Here is the letter from Stephanie-

Vicki and I would just like to let you know, how very much we enjoyed the afternoon cooking with you. I would also like to say how much I appreciated the extent you went to for myself, by showing and cooking vegetarian foods. Your meal was amongst the best food I have tasted in Japan, and I will try these recipes for myself when I get home. Thank you once again for your hospitality.
