We were invited to stay at our friend's house in Irish Beach over the weekend for a birthday celebration get together on Saturday night for Don's birthday. A wonderful homemade supper was prepared:
Appetizers, Minestrone Soup, Salad, Corn Muffins and Wine at Don and Pam's place
and dessert of Apple Bundt Cake with beverage of choice at Jerry and Debbie's place.
Sunday morning we all drove to a local cafe for breakfast. Afterward, we went mushroom picking with our good friend. Golden Chanterelle Mushrooms! Thanks to Roger, a mushroom expert, we learned how to hunt and identify Golden Trumpet Chanterelle Mushrooms. Saute in a little butter and serve over egg noodles. I'm thinking of finding a buyer or two and next year hunting these professionally. Now that I know what to do and where to look.
What fun we had!
Hiking in the forest and the rush you experience when you happen to find these beautiful specimens shining their golden trumpet color against the softly carpeted forest floor. Slight peppery taste. Yummy!
Thanks, Roger! Here's my little treasure trove of these highly sought after and coveted of mushrooms...
