As a respite from The Turkey, this lovely almost-vegetarian recipe found on a wonderful blog, Poppyseeds & Tiger Lilies, http://poppyseedsandtigerlilies.blogspot.com/2009/11/magazine-mondays-creamy-mushroom-and.html , sure hit the spot. The author notes this is a recipe she adapted from volume 38 of Donna Hay magazine. Both the dish & the blog are worth checking out. I am posting so I misplace neither. Can be made really vegetarian with vegetable stock in place of the beef stock. Serve with your favorite sauteed green or simple green salad for a full meal.
