The poor farmer pales when he comes through the door and I tell him that today's lunch is an experiment. But it would be boring to produce the same meals over and over again wouldn't it.
Well I made rather nice mushrooms on toast for tea the other night and the farmer pronounced it very nice - real praise from him as 'all right' is usually as far as it goes. Thought I would pass the recipe on for you to try. It is nothing earth shattering, but rather a nice combination of tastes.
Chop your mushrooms (field mushrooms if possible but otherwise any combination) up fairly small. Pour some good olive oil into a pan and chop a couple of cloves of garlic small and gently cook for a couple of minutes in the olive oil. Put the bread on to toast. Put the mushrooms into the garlic/oil and cook quite quickly for three or four minutes. Pile on to buttered toast and grate parmesan cheese over the top.Delicious. Try it and report back,
Out for a Chinese meal with 'the girls' tonight. Already looking forward to the battered prawns.
