There's A Fungus Among Us
In fact, there are six kinds of fungus among us, at present. I finished the fresh button mushrooms in the fridge last night. But, I have this marvelous bag full of mixed dried 'shrooms that I carted all the way back from Cape Cod, only to find that Atlantic Spice has a sister living here in San Francisco.
My problem is that I can't decide what to do with them. Mushroom risotto? Chicken Cacciatore? Mushroom and rice timbales? Sautéed mushrooms on toast? Under poached eggs? It's a nice big bag, but I don't think it will stretch to all the ideas I've been mulling over.
I guess the first step is to re-hydrate them, then decide. Any suggestions from the Peanut Gallery?
