Please tell us what you end up doing with the puffball, Allen!

I found a giant Chicken of the Woods one time and was thrilled. I tried slicing it and sauteeing it in butter, but it not only did NOT taste like chicken, it had no flavor at all. Was like chewing a tasteless sponge, so I tossed it.

I love to go mushrooming! My Polish relatives taught me to pick 5 kinds so I stick with those. Clean them, dry them, store them in cheesecloth and rehydrate for pot roasts, borscht, cabbage pierogi, golumpki.

I've never found a morel, though. I go mushrooming in the woods, and morels are found mostly in grassy areas in the spring, right?

Haha, for some reason I like the sidekicks stroganoff over the real thing.

Heh
I think I don't like original stroganoff because the pieces of mushroom are real and much bigger.
I dont taste the mushroom in the sidekick

I hate mushrooms

yea, thanx for reminding me. It always had those little canned mushrooms. ew
And I love mushrooms but not those. They just soaked up the sour cream and added their own mushroomy taste and smell. *Tummy churns again* But I must say, it reheats real well. And I would eat beef stroganoff for days = (
But it kept me alive. And when you're hungry, everything tastes great. But we really had it pretty good. You never know you're poor when you're young.

well i think i might not have to know about that
cause my dad makes alot of money... so he's paying for all my school as long as i stay in it. Ive been working half of my life so I have alot of money myself.. and when im done school ill be working paid accounting internships


I'll be eating stroganoff everyday
Maybe sometime ill make it from scratch without the mushrooms
