it doesn’t take much figurin’ to figure out that i like toadstools, mushrooms and most cute fungi. a lot. here is a little sampling of specimens i found growing around the house.


those little wooden toadstools hold tiddly winks.

more mushrooms!

i found these in the back yard after the rain a few days ago!

wild mushrooms!

i also love to eat mushrooms. a lot. i’m not much of a cook, i just sautee them in a little olive oil. one tasty dish i like to make is mac & cheese with sauteed mushrooms and garlic. mmmm. if you have any quick and easy mushroom favorites, let me know!

    Hi Hannah!
    We sometimes stand some mushrooms on their “heads” ( so that the stems are sticking up) and set them on a baking sheet or pan. Take a dab of butter and schmear it on the part where the gills would be ( good grief, I think I need a botany book here!) though I understand that if the gills are showing your mushrooms may be heading a bit on the not so fresh side… anyhoo have your oven heated but before you stick them in sprinkle them with soy sauce . Cook till heated through and enjoy!
