I have been doing a myriad different things the last couple of weeks one totally different from the other- mushroom picking, boating, fishing, walks in the woods, visit to a glass factory and of course some retail therapy. I have a big celebration coming up for my son soon and before I get very very busy and the blog world takes a back seat, I decided to do a couple of posts :-).
Last week I was out with a friend picking mushrooms in the forest. Though most of them are finished, I could still get few to satiate my taste buds. The best part is one is out in the nature , walking on the soft bed of green moss and pine needles, and the return point always extending until you are lost in the forest a few kilometers deeper. It’s like a gamble – you are never too satisfied to say its enough :-).
The worst part is to know which ones to pick. A wrong one can get you killed sometimes – so one has to be very very careful while picking mushrooms. S is fully equipped with the knowledge of the good and bad ones and we set out with a basket, a brush to dust off the mud and a knife.
together with some black trumpets - our picks of the daySaute them in butter and sprinkle some salt and pepper and they are YUMM!!
