I am going to do my appetizer tomorrow. We didn't get to the big market in Vancouver this weekend, but I can get what I want for it at my local organic store.
I hope not, mine is decidedly non-alcoholic! I'm getting excited for next weekend...I will be doing at least two of my dishes. I have to do some fancy footwork, the dishes I want to use...I only have 2 bowls and 2 salad plates. Don't know what glassware I'm using for my beverage, yet.

Personally, nothing I ever post will be alcoholic. What is posted as a beverage is up to the contestant. Beverages can be soft or hard. I understand that just because I don't use alcohol doesn't mean that others can't, and vice/versa.

I think I am going to take a break on this one, not really into mushrooms anymore, which is odd because i used to love them!

Arrrrrrgh! I've already had to make substitutions. Some of the mushrooms I wanted will just not be available...in Montana...in February! I got everything else, though!

We are supposed to be getting what we can get locally. The supplier for the store does grow the mushrooms...but not at this time of year.

The mushrooms I ended up with came from California, but they don't have them now, either.

My subs will be just fine!

No, but I have to be able to go to the store and get my ingredients.

I'm not very far from a university. Perhaps they have the mushrooms you are looking for?

A New Rule to this GCC-Fungi is hereby declared: no psilocybin, aka magic mushroom, is allowed, and any contestant so using the fungus will be accused and summarily found guilty of jury-tampering.
