Mushroom – Daily Post & NanoPoblano – Day 17

Today is a combo of challenges – the NanoPoblano, and the Daily Post. The prompt word for the DP is mushroom.

Is this a mushroom or a toadstool? I have no idea, but we found it growing in our yard a long time ago.

Some say they are the same thing, but I did read that they are not the same. In either case, I wouldn’t recommend you eating a random yard ‘shroom. You never know what might happen. You could be fine with a tasty meal with mushrooms, you could be in for a wild, halucinogenic trip, or you could die. It’s not worth taking a chance.

I like mushrooms, at least the ones I buy at the store, or order in a restaurant. They are good cooked, and also raw. Here’s how I cook them: rinse a little to get the dirt off, slice, put in pan with squeezed lemon juice, and butter, then cover and simmer on very low heat for a little while (they will shrink). I use mushrooms in recipes and on pizza, too.

Here’s a few I grabbed out of a fairy garden I made. These ones are cute. I think I read that real red ones with white spots are deadly, though.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today about mushrooms. 🙂

MY CHRISTMAS VACATION

MY CHRISTMAS VACATION

Hey…I’m baaack!

Hope everyone had a wonderful and fun Christmas. We sure had a great time. Went out of state to visit family and friends for a few days, celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary at a fancy Italian restaurant, did some shopping, and sightseeing of Christmas lights around the town, played lots of board games with daughter, son-in-law, and grandson, and ate a lot of good food. We just got back home today; had to get up at 3 a. m. to catch our flight back. I’m still sleepy, but got everything unpacked now, and getting back to our normal routine here. Happy there wasn’t a blizzard for us to get stuck in, like last year.

I’ll slowly catch up with all your posts from the last few days. Can’t wait to read what y’all have been up to.

Here’s some of the fun photos I took. 🙂
