Bounty from Elk Camp...

The kids are expert mushroom cleaners!

Those tiny fingers, attention to detail, and fascination with new things made them my perfect partners in crime tonight to clean up the fabulous Chanterelle mushrooms that Joel brought home from Elk Camp this year. John, Joel and Matthew foraged for the tasty 'shrooms and got three gallons between them.
With the help of the kiddos (armed with small paint brushes), we cleaned up all but about eight of the mushrooms, and I think they'll want to do the rest tomorrow.
Now for my turn to hunt... the perfect recipes to prepare these tasty morsels! No doubt they'll be the perfect accompaniment to Joel's birthday dinner tonight.

Okay, this has nothing to do w/ mushrooms. Girls wanted to make the "green eggs and ham" cookies the other day. We were all very disappointed that the frosting came out so soft--not at all like yours of last year! What did I do? How do you get that nice, sugary-but-not-gooey frosting?!?
