My first successful foray with my local mushroom group!
I swore I would wait until I learned more before I attempted to eat a good mushroom find but hanging out with mushroom professionals is a confidence builder. Plus the crazy look they gave me when I confirmed the mushrooms in my bag for the millionth time and said 'you're absolutely certain these won't kill me?'... It helped.
Feeling extra confident when I got home I made an omelette with a very small amount and it was delicious.
The next day I sauteed all of the remaining mushrooms to toss with some linguini and I lost some of my confidence which manifested itself in my way overcooking, and I mean obliterating them, in olive oil to the point they weren't a very good sell to the husband.
But, we're both still here!
