Wild Mushroom Saute

"Like most people, I love mushrooms. I have even been taught by a Polish friend how to identify a few wild ones. When I find some, I make this wonderful saute."

    This was a most excellent way to use my shitake mushrooms that were starting to dry out. I used rosemary, oregano, and thyme. I added a few chopped tomatoes leftover from another dish and mixed in some brown rice and I had a great lunch! Thanks Evelyn!

I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
