Mushroom Hunting

Sunday morning, my friends Earl and Hema took me mushroom hunting in the swamps.  I can't tell you where the mushrooms grow, because I am pretty sure that if I did, I would end up in a shallow grave for the hogs to find me (I didn't make that up).

The mushrooms we were searching for are called Chanterelles.  They are little golden mushrooms that are hiding on the floor of the woods.

I can't wait to make mushroom pasta!  Nothing but mushrooms, garlic, butter, and fresh pasta from the Ocean Springs Fresh market. 

There were tons of mushrooms growing in the swamp. Ones that will probably make you sick if you eat them, but that are beautiful to look at.  I took pictures of those too!
