    Since Mushroom was mentioned....

    Outdoor Buffet


    This is something I have been researching for the last several months.
    Your own yard is a buffet, well not for me but there are plenty of foods to forage for, one of my favorites has been Mushrooms. It's nice to know that when I'm out Back Packing I can forage for food to supplement my meals. So I have been educating myself and ordered a few field books.
     
    This is going to be my first attempt at eating a wild mushroom.

    This is a Puff Ball (link removed), here's some more info on these guys (link removed).

    I came across this guy Backpack Camping at Hickory Run S.P., pictured above, this puff ball was a little bit bigger than a softball.

    I find these guys all over and as a kid we used to pick them up and throw them against the tree or kick them like a ball...what a waste, when they were mature we would toss them and they would poof into a dust cloud of spores. I never knew this was the same mushroom, anyhow the mushroom is called a Puff Ball and since I found one in the company parking lot and thanks to a fellow blogger I'm gonna brave this Mushroom for dinner tonight.

    I sliced the mushroom like fries for dipping and for the dip I used Outbacks Blooming Onion dip recipe, this dip is great with anything breaded and fried.

    Chicken fried steak to the right, topped with a roux.

    If I were in the field this guy would be chopped and added to eggs or a stew or something, but I'm sure since I know these can be eaten, I'll probably never see another one.
