11 hours and 33 minutes

But who’s counting?

Off to NY Sheep & Wool (aka “Rhinebeck”) early in the morning!

Sadly the Phaeolus sweater wasn’t staying closed well…was gapping, etc. So I sewed some grosgrain along the edges where the hooks and eyes are, and it seems to work well!

chickens and hens

fungus that is…
chicken and hen
I think the chicken of the woods (the orange slabs) is so called because it’s “meaty” (for a fungus), and the hen (the brown on the right) because it looks like a hen’s ass. I like its chewy texture. Made Hungarian Mushroom soup out of these the other night (from the OLD Moosewood cookbook, before they got all righteous about fat and salt).

num num!

beaver leavings

Must’ve been some crazy beaver… I wonder what the plan here was…


No, not yet… Except for the gin and basil.

But I did get gas in DH’s mom-mobile (a minivan), and new wipers, and different music (gawd save me from eightymillion hours of Jerry)

    Now what’s wrong with Jerry?!
    Have fun at Rhinebeck – one of these days I’ll get there.

    Love the OLD Moosewood cookbook too, and that particular recipe, though have never used local ‘shrooms. You’ve made me ever so aware of them lately. Found THE cutest one ever yesterday and want to show you.

    Leave it to you to have grosgrain ribbon that would match a fungus dyed sweater. :)

    That soup looks GOOD!
