FURST we gaved her a Gift Card to her Furs Curling Place... and THEN... We let her sit in OUR Cliner Chair... and Watch The Cincinnati Reds win Their game and the Cleveland Indians beat those Devils from Tampa... and we let her give us Chest and Tummy Rubs. She says it was a SUPER Mother's Day. Did YOU do super stuffs fur YOUR mom?
Today is LIMERICK Day over at OZ's Place...
There once was a Mushroom that needed Picking..
Once it was fried it was well worth LICKING.
NOW that is the best we can do with a Limerick... butt we DID try..
SO why did we chews to do it about a MUSHROOM, you ask?????? Well, here in this neck of the woods... it is MUSHROOM SEASON... They grow in the Woods... Some peeps call them SPONGE Mushrooms... butt their REAL name is MOREL. THERE is NOTHING like them in ANY store.. When cooked Correctly they do not Feel or Taste like any other type of mushroom.
Furst you have to send your dad to the woods with some Plastic Bags... NO HOLES IN THE BOTTOM kind. THEN you wait fur like 87 HOURS while he WALKS and WALKS and WALKS and when he comes home he has mushrooms..
THEN Mom takes over... Furst she CAREFULLY puts them in the Sink with some water... and gently washes them...
Now this is a VERY Short Season... We only find them for 2 to 2 1/2 weeks.. SOME years there are MORE some years Less. When there are a LOT of them... mom cookers them up and FREEZES them... They are WONDERFUL to cut up small into Scrambled Eggs. ONE year Dad found SO many that mom strung them on THREAD.. and DRIED them on the Sun Porch... THOSE went into Jars with tight lids... and she put them in Gravy and Busghetti and stuffs. She would put them in some water and they PLUMPED UP and were ready to cook. BUTT the BESTEST WAY is FRESH FRIED... and WARM from the Skillet. JUST SAYIN.
Squirrels and Deer and Rabbits and even BUGS and SNAILS... Love these thingys. BUTT NOT as much as WE do.
