Mushroom hunting, that is.
Oh, morels! Talk about the perfect star of an Earth Dinner. These farm foraged morels* tasted divine, sautéed in organic butter just a few hours after finding them on Sunday and sopped up with a warm and crusty hunk of freshly baked baguette (a simple new yeasted beer bread recipe I've been working on—and may have finally perfected!).

11/13/08: A Wild Mushroom Feast for Your Eyes Only
* Foraging for wild mushrooms can be a wonderful and rewarding thing to do, but you should never taste (or even touch) a wild mushroom unless you are 110% sure that it is edible. Most mushrooms are poisonous, and many are deadly. Please be smart and stay safe!
© FarmgirlFare.com, the thrilled with this foraging find foodie farm blog where it happens to be turkey hunting season this week, too, but we prefer to admire our wild turkeys from a distance, rather than spend the day dressed head to toe in camo trying to outsmart them. Deer season, however, is a different story. I love venison, though thankfully the donkey peddling cowboy (who is also the one responsible for bringing Bert and Bear into our lives) usually shoots one for me.
