NATIONAL MUSHROOM MONTH

Thursday, September 6th: Tasty, versatile and nutritious … celebrate NATIONAL MUSHROOM MONTH during September. We just celebrated with a scrumptious mushroom, onion, tomato and egg burrito. Mmmmm, I’m ready for another!

The Mushroom Council, sponsor of this month-long holiday, states, “Often grouped with vegetables, mushrooms provide many of the nutritional attributes of produce, as well as attributes more commonly found in meat, beans or grains. Mushrooms are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free and very low in sodium, yet they provide important nutrients, including selenium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin D and more. Read on to discover some of nature’s hidden treasures found in mushrooms.”

    We love mushrooms and frequently hunt them – even fall ones. We know a lot about them and have several we can eat, picked right out of the ground or off a tree in the woods and fried up for dinner! Yummmmm.

      Brave woman. I don’t know if I’d dare try hunting my own. Of course, since I know nothing about what to look for in the wild, I’d be foodlish to try. I’ll stick with the ones that come in a pink or blue styrofoam tray LOL
