I love mushrooms, you can bake, broil, deep-fry, grill, roast, saute, steam and stew them. You can eat them raw alone or in a salad, you can use them in stock or in soup and you can stuff them! Reading the Flavor Bible by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg I realize there are so many types of mushrooms I get lost in the names, I am sure that I could spend a month trying new recipes that feature mushrooms and not eat the same one twice!
Mushrooms are also a great subject to photograph! These little guys, and I emphasis little because I don’t think they were much more than an inch tall, were growing in my back yard, more precisely on the mat at the bottom of the deckstairs. I was laying on the ground just inches from the mushrooms, using my macro lens. Success, I have captured wild mushrooms! while I won’t be eating these little guys, I now crave something mushroomy for dinner!
