I have a whole bunch of conflicting and conflicted emotions running around in my head this afternoon, so I’m just going to stick with the subject of mushrooms ’cause if I didn’t I’d be rambling on all day.
This weekend I cooked a HUGE pot of beef stroganoff. I love mushrooms, so if I had to be anything other than human, I’d choose to be a Hobbit. Besides, they like “well rounded figures” and I’m well on my way there.
I’ll admit it’s not a traditional Christmas-time food. But for me it’s a comfort food and that’s very important at this time of year. That stroganoff is going to feed all my visiting family for a couple of meals. Stroganoff over broccoli, stroganoff filled puff pastry cups (yummmmmmm), I may even put it in a quiche.
Anybody got any thoughts on mushrooms in general? or beef stroganoff in particular? recipes to share? What’s your comfort food?
