There’s GOLD In Them Thar Hills! May 13, 2011Posted by littlebangtheory in Dinner with TCR.
…In the form of free food of the most delectable kind – morels!
This evening on the way home from work I stopped at a roadside spot where I’d found morels some years back, and… voila!
There they were, camouflaged among last year’s leaves to the point of near invisibility, at least until I saw one, and then they were everywhere!
I picked a bunch, like a BUNCH, of varying sizes and took them home:
The biggest dozen will be stuffed for tomorrow night’s dinner; those needing trimming got sauteed in butter and eaten tonight, accompanied by a soundtrack of yumming and ummmmimg, courtesy of moi. The rest are drying in the oven on low heat, to be stored in the freezer for reconstitution as my hedonistic desires dictate.
This is the best haul I’ve had in several years.
Thank you, Mother Earth. Thank you, Father Sky!
