Daily Prompt: Mushroom

Found some mushrooms in a beautiful Fairy Garden one evening.  Magic Mushrooms I think they call them.

I just happened to saute some button mushrooms in butter yesterday.  I cook them the same day I purchase them so they are fresh and use them in various things such as sauces, soups or even by themselves.  I like adding them to egg drop soup and pumpkin curry soup as well as to my spaghetti sauces.

After knowing supposed mushroom experts that poisoned themselves when using kinds they picked themselves, I leave it to the markets for mine.  I don’t eat mushrooms all the time nor do I eat the wide variety out there.  Sometimes I don’t eat them for years at a time til they catch my fancy again.  Depends on what I plan on cooking and if any fresh are available.

Onions, Mushroom, Zucchini, chick peas, sauteaud in butter with various Mediterranean Spices of your choice sauteed in olive oil.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

I have only made cinnamon rolls a couple of times in the last 40 years or so.  I stopped trying because the dough was never soft enough and they never turned out well at all even though I followed the recipes to the letter.

This may have been the problem.

After refusing to pay what Cinnabon charges for a sweet roll I decided to try one more time while changing up the basic recipe.  I was very pleasantly surprised to finally have made a batch of cinnamon rolls that were tender and delicious, an unexpected delight!

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.  Please do not over bake them or they will be on the dry side.  That is what happened with my next batch even though they still were tasty.
