Fun Photo Friday – Mushroom CSA

Gorgeous mushrooms arrive on our doorstep all summer long from Oyster Creek Mushrooms.  Each week it’s a surprise and each week it’s my job to figure out how to best showcase these lovelies.  Of course, the recipe I just posted earlier this week, Fettuccine with Chicken, Mushrooms, and Caramelized Onions is one, but there are many more, most of which I make up on the spot as I prepare dinner on the Riggin.

Every once in a while I’m also lucky enough to find chanterelles on a couple of the islands we visit.  It took me four years of watching and observing their entire life cycle before I felt confident enough to pick them.
