How do you like mushrooms?


I have a mushroom glut! Look at them all! Overnight they all just went *pop**ready to be picked now!* And Badly Coloured Boy is away on a filmshoot this weekend, so it's only me to eat them all up. I think tonight will be the mushroom pasta/ beet leaf/ pasta combo again, with thyme or parsley from the garden too. Any other ideas? Especially ones that will be something I can take for lunch during the week.
I was thinking of making beef-free stroganoff, but that will have to wait until next week's groceries to get the sour cream (must remember to get paprika from the wholefoods store too - they have it in the cutest little Spanish tins, and I've been wanting an excuse to buy some forever).

I remember from when I was nine and had a mushroom kit that afterwards my mum tipped all the peat into the garden, and next year a few mushrooms grew. Well, I'm going to heavily encourage that in a sheltered, mulchy spot underneath two pencil pines in my garden. The stem stumps are all being thrown there right now, and I tossed two whole mushrooms in there so they can spread their spores all about.

And in other garden news, my beanshoots are showing! By September I should have broad beans!

Aw Michelle - too late! I took some to my mum last night... I'll see, actually, we may have a few left after dinner on Monday, but it'll be like, a sample quantity, not a 'feed a family of four' quantity, I'm sorry.

sauteed mushrooms with eggs on toast is the best ever.
