Question 1/4 lb (115g) sliced mushrooms?

How much do you think 115g (1/4lb) of sliced mushrooms would work out to in cups?

Thanks

Miss Poutine..

The way I arrived at that amount was this..I bought a bag of sliced mushrooms a while back. Somehow they ended up in the freezer.

Anyways, I went into the kitchen got them out.. weighed 1/4 lb of them and dumped them in a cup. Very scientific!! Now when I think about it if they were "fresh" not frozen they probably would not take up as much volume/space as the frozen ones did...So my numbers my be high.

So what are you cooking??

Miss Poutine..

Regretfully ma'am, I will have to decline your kind offer for dinner this evening. As I gave my pilot a long week-end off, I will be unable to enjoy what promises to be an excellent meal. Thank you for your warm hospitality and invitation. I do pray that you will have plenty of excellent Kentucky Bourbon to warm yourself and your guest.

Seriously, I hope all goes well with your dinner. It does sound fun!
