Morel mushrooms

 After a dry mushroom year last year....we literally didn't see a single mushroom...Bill brought home this bunch.  From the posts on my friend's facebook pages, this looks like it is a better year.  I have heard that when the lilacs bloom, that the mushrooms are also out.  It has proved true this year.  A good rule of thumb to remember...
No, these are no low cal snack!  Dipped in egg and crushed cracker crumbs, then fried in real butter.  Paula Dean would be proud!  They tasted wonderful.  It is probably a good thing that there weren't more of them to eat.

Usually, I'm not a jealous person. I believe that there are plenty of good things to go around. I can be happy for another person's god fortune.

But not in this case. I'm SO FLIPPING JEALOUS of your mushrooms!
