Well, I add mushrooms to almost every thing – except fish that is – but that’s another story.
Mushrooms – delicious and nutritious. If you are an expert, you can pick your own in the woods. I’m not an expert so I get mine from my local supermarket.
One of the things I like about dining in restaurants, is they serve things with mushrooms on them. You can do that at home too. Because I only eat fresh meat, vegetables and fruit, I have to satisfy myself with foods I love. I love mushrooms.
To really savor the taste, I cook and eat them with pork, beef, chicken or lamb. I don’t mix mushrooms with my vegetables because it dilutes their wonderful flavor.

Cheap? About 25 cents an ounce, not exactly – but an ounce of mushrooms go a long ways.
Quick? I should say so. You can sautés them in a minute or two.
Do yourself a favor. Take just a few minutes and grill a nice little piece of chicken, a little beef steak or a pork chop in a tad bit of olive oil and then smother it in fresh mushroom. How sweet it is.
