MUSHROOMS.....

Hope YOUR moms all had a super day like OURS did.
    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...
 THEN she cuts them in half LONG WAYS... and puts them in MORE water..   and
 When they are all CLEAN... and don't have any leaves or stuffs on them at all... she puts them in the KEEP the ALIENS AWAY... thingy... and lets them drain and dry fur about an hour...   THEN...
 She puts them in FLOWERS flour... and gets them all coated...    and melts Half Crisco shortening and half margarine in a SQUARE SKILLET... beclaws THAT is the kind that she LOVES... NEXT she puts the mushrooms in... with the ROUNDED Sides DOWN...     and then she turns on the FIRES and Salts them Lightly...      They cooker fur a few mins. on that side ... and the smell of them drifts through the house and DRIVES US CRAZY...   THEN she turns each one over.. carefully..   and fries the INSIDE SIDE... until they are all Brown like the Outside..   ...  and THEN....
 when Dad and US are tired of hearing HER scream to get OUTTA HER KITCHEN  when they are FINALLY brown on BOTH sides she takes them outta the skillet and THE GOURMET EATING begins...      Mom and dad put THEIRS on BREAD fur sandwiches...  as you can see there at the top...   WE just eat OURS PLAIN.
You did a grrrreat Job of Finding them Dad... and you cookered them up JUST RIGHT mom.

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.

You better send your dad back out so the squirrels and deer and rabbits don't eat them all! They look delicious. SHE loves mushrooms, but haven't had those.

Sounds like you planned the PERFECT Mother's Day for your mom.

Hey F-n-E!
Wow, I'm so very glad that Mamaw had a super day! She's a fabulous Mom and we all love her bunches. OMD Papaw Pantslegs did a great job finding those shrooms. My peeps are drooling over them. Ours will be up in a week or so. YUM

Bailey said...

That's really cool, we've never seen mushrooms like those.

Glad your Mom had a great day.

easyweimaraner said...

I never tried to eat mushrooms, but yours look great! I would like to search the in the woods (long walks!) but I'm not sure if I would eat the mushrooms my staff will find there. I like your limerick, it has all what it needs and for the taste of fried mushrooms we should use our minds eye. I forgot to buy flowers or a gift for my mom, maybe that's the reason that I'm on a diet sine today. I mean, I can understand that she is a little grumpy, but such a punishment just for a missed mother's day gift? Ridiculous... Have a super monday!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Just don't see mushy rooms like that around here. Probably too HOT so they stay hidden. :(

Mommy likes mushy rooms.

Oz theTerrier said...

Wow! Ma likes some mushrooms....only the ones that don't get slimy when cooked. I bet she likes these kind too.

Now, what in the world is with that limerick? You were well on your way to writing a really good one but stopped half way through! Oh boys...what will I do with you?

Peggy Frezon said...

That is nice that you let mom sit in your recliner! That is an interesting recipe there...but it's also scary! Have a wonderful day!

Our Mom LOVES mushrooms and she has heard about the Morels but never had any. I don't think they grow in our area and Mom would probably end up eating a toad stool she mistook for one if she went looking :)

Sketching with Dogs said...

We have never seen that kind of mushrooms here but they look pretty delicious!

Mom says thanks for mentioning donating to a shelter. she forgot the large food bag with a hole from Chewy is still in the back bedroom, we were gonna offer it to the local shelter. The free bags we got were very small (4.4lbs each)one we already ate and the other is about gone!

Casey said...

WOW, those look like yummy mushrooms! Momma says we can come visit your Hill for a snack. :)

I was super nice to my momma yesterday. I woke her up EXTRA early so she'd get to enjoy more of the day, then I snuggled and snuggled with her and let her feed me treats. Then I sent her off to her renny-sauce faire thingy and let her hunt for the pressie I left her in one of the shops. She LOVES the hunt! I think she might be part hunting dog, you know.

Misaki @ misadventuresofMisaki said...

my daddy sure would like to have a munch on those shrooms!

The Army of Four said...

Both the Reds and the Indians winning -- now THAT'S great! That's what Mom and Dad say, anyway.
Happy morel hunting!
Cammie!

If you two say they are good, then those mushrooms must be really tasty - now to get Mom to like mushrooms:)

Sweet William The Scot said...

Lee has never picked mushrooms, she is afraid she will pick the wrong kind and we would end up dead, but then we would not know we were dead, so what is the problem I say. We just buy those plain ones at the store but we fry them in yellow corn meal. We love mushrooms.
Thanks for being a friend

Daisy said...
