They do look a bit freakish.
Even so, who can resist that bacon flavor clinging to that velvet stem?
Not I. Not I.
(Apologies to my vegan friends. I promise to stick to untied and free vegetables in my next post.)
The daughter who swears she does not like mushrooms, could not keep her hands off of these.
Two days ago she wanted to chop mushrooms, just for fun. I said, “Ok, if you eat it too.” She did. Raw. And then asked for more.
She so definitely does not like mushrooms. No way. And don’t try to tell her otherwise.
P.S. Thank you, thank you, for your love and sympathy for my whining. I’ll try not to subject you to it. Often. Being a parent is character building in whole new levels.
