Mmm, yummy

No knitting in this post — this one’s for my sister.

We made a super-yummy, super-decadent dinner on Sunday using these:


Morels! These are delicious, wild, gourmet mushrooms; they also share a name with my sister. But, let me hasten to add, although my sister is also wild and perfect for those with refined tastes, she’s a whole heck of a lot better looking. Still, I always feel a special connection with these mushrooms, and when I saw them on sale in Loblaws, I had to find something to make with them. And we did — Linguine with Asparagus and Morels:


It contained loads of butter, cream, and parmesan cheese, and it was delicious. What a lovely taste of spring!

Just in time, too, because now it’s definitely summer here, at least for a few days; the humidex today was supposed to go to 37C, though I don’t think it got quite that hot. Still, it’s muggy and sunny and warm, everything Toronto summers are know for. Oh, and smoggy. Mustn’t forget that lovely aspect of big-city living…

And, of course, I’m celebrating by sitting inside at the computer. Perfect!
