We have been waiting patiently in Richmond for the first snow of the season. Not flurries, but real snow with accumulation and temperatures that ensure it will remain beyond a fleeting moment. Wishes came true this week with a magical snowfall of half a foot, making kids and grownups alike giddy with the prospect of play followed by snuggling by the fire enjoying comforting meals and hot beverages.

Sometimes I think proponents of the Paleo Diet are on to something. These folks eat the way our hunter-gatherer ancestors purportedly did, grain and dairy free, with a diet mostly composed of animals proteins, vegetables and fruits. There is no sugar, and therefore no wine or alcohol, and no legumes, thus no beans, lentils or peanuts. Bummer. I am simplifying things a bit, but if you want a good read, Wikipedia is a good place to start. Also no coffee. Double bummer.
