Mushrooming we will go
Sue wanted to go up mushrooming this morning. So much so that she was waiting in the car when I came over to the main house this morning at about 9. So I hopped in Dan’s truck and we followed Sue and her Daughter Conni to the mushroom grounds.
Sue pushing her walker around the burn
A big forest fire burned through this area two years ago and morels like freshly burned over grounds, so we knew there were morels here somewhere.
The girls left first and said they’d stop at another place and eventually Dan and I followed. We did well at the first spot but not well at the second spot and were pretty tired out from walking over all the debris on the ground.
Conni hits the jackpot
When we got home we found that Conni had found a jackpot of the morels in the second spot they went to and we think she had more than we had, so we awarded her the prize for most mushrooms, but I think I got the prize for the largest one.
Dan and I unloaded the building materials from my van and put them away to keep the stuff out of the rain that is supposed to come in tonight.
My turn, cooking Chinese
They wanted Chinese, so it was my turn to cook tonight and with all the fresh morels I decided to do a dish of them too, with asparagus and ham which turned out yummy.
Here’s all the stuff I prepped for the Chinese dinner, just before cooking it. I made three dishes and they raved about the asparagus mushroom ham one the most, but all three dishes got great reviews and more of the food was eaten than they thought they could consume with all going away with real full bellies.
Conni was kind enough to do the dishes and clean up a part of the job I hate to do, so I was real happy for that.
Another nice day.
