uqa trunk show, congrats, t!!! 5 lbs of mushrooms

you know, if i designed scrapbooking materials they would look a lot like this.

but since even mentioning the word "scrapbooking" makes me, the baby jebus and st francis cry,

i think i'll move on.

witness these exorcist stairs.

yes, you could spider walk down them but instead leff and i walked up them and looked at a spider.

we also passed this puppy.

why all of this walking? the queen anne trunk show.

there were a decent amount of crafters selling but we didn't purchase anything except for a brownie and a cupcake from the bake sale table which we ate in front of this pumpkin.

it really is a nice pumpkin.

the best part of this weekend, however, was hearing that t was offered a new job!!!! HOORAY!!! we went out celebrating at the two bells on saturday!

congrats, t!! we're all so glad that you'll be moving on to bigger and better things! you're awesome!!

i, however, am not awesome. at least not when it comes to using decimal points correctly. case in point? our five pounds of mushrooms.

(original here)

i forgot the decimal in front of the 5 when i ordered them.

i have a feeling that i'll be spending quite a bit of time today looking for mushroom recipes. if you have any that you'd like to share, please feel free to leave them in the comments.

Ooh that looks good -- I love mushrooms. Here's my contribution to the recipe challenge. I usually omit the soup mix and just use a little garlic, salt & pepper while sautéeing the mushrooms. I also double the amount of mushrooms, and use swiss cheese instead of monterey jack.

So, yeah, it's just like that recipe I linked to, just totally different.

I grew up on Queen Anne! I love the picture of the stairs - they're all over the hill...

I used to have a GREAT recipe for mushrooms marinated in white wine but I've looked EVERYWHERE and I cannot find it - it's a delish hot appetizer. You can try and Google it but I can't guarantee its yum factor...

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Not mushroom in your kitchen now eh?

What we like sometimes is a lentil bake which you can have with either mushrooms of courgettes.

sizzle the sliced mushrooms ina pan with some garlic and plonk in the bottom of a casserole dish and add a layer of mushy lentils and onions and marmite and pepper and ontop is a layer of a mixture of breadcrumbs and grated cheese which goes lovely and crunchy in the oven for 30 mins at number 7 ( very hot ) and we make a marmite gravy to have with it and whatever else you fancy- roast spuds, parsnips etc. yum!

I love this recipe for tofu marsala or you could go all fancy pants and make duxelles.
Maybe toss some into miso soup. I hope you feel better soon.
