We decided to take a walk through the woods the other day. It was such a beautiful day for a walk.
Besides admiring nature we were on a mission to find mushrooms! Morel mushrooms.
And mushrooms we found!
The kids enjoyed mushroom hunting. When they weren't looking for mushrooms they were climbing trees, picking flowers, and make believing they were in a whole other world.
I had to stop and admire this tree in bloom.
Our mushrooms drying.
This is the first time we have gone mushroom hunting.
Here are a few sites that offer more information on Morels.
Frying your mushrooms with some butter is very good.
Below is a blog that has a recipe for a mushroom stroganoff. I have made it before(I added beef to it too). It was very delicious!
Here is the recipe from the blog:
3 Tbs butter
1 med onion - chopped
3 cup sliced mushrooms (I used a mix of fresh and canned)
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups sour cream (you can use less if you want to)
3 Tbs. flour
cooked egg noodles
I can't wait for the steak and mushrooms we are going to enjoy later this week!!
