my neighbor phil has been growing field mushrooms somewhere in the commune, neither the less he has an abundance,and now so do me and jacob.I had some spare time at school today so i did a research on recipes that use heaps of mushrooms and a creamy soup was all to tempting. With a few modifications i ended up with a delightful meal and also a guest taster!
Cream of mushroom soup.
one liter of reduced fat milk
two brown onions(finely chopped)
one full cup of fresh parsley
three cloves of garlic
four bay leafs
one rash of bacon
table spoon of sage
two vegetable stock cubes
salt and ground black pepper
seven hundred grams of mushrooms
two hundred and fifty grams of cream
cook off your onions and garlic add the bacon cook for ten minutes or until soft. Add bay leafs,stock, milk,half a cup of parsley and salt and pepper. Bring to the boil then reduce heat and let simmer for 15 minutes,stir often.
Stir in the mushrooms and cook for a further twenty minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning. Discard bay leafs.
Stir the cream into the soup. Do not bring to the boil. Blend the soup until smooth. Serve with remainder of the parsley and fresh pepper.

After watching the premier,there was the wait until the hard copy was released.The present thomas campbells lastest full length feature film, sequel to "sprout" and the "seedling"is a journey into modern culture, surf movements and general happiness.As a hard copy was aquired local surfer and film star jacob stuth was first to put his hand up for the screening in his surf side sustainable wonderland.
i have recently here at tall talk had an abundance of self sewn lettus. What better thing to do then inquire with the doctor about trading with the organic cafe he works at.As anyone who knows me well,knows coffee is a precious commodity in my day to day life.So as it works out i now trade 15-20 lettus include baby coz ,red oak,coral,mizuna and baby ice berg for a "250g" bag of allpress fair trade organic coffee.Not bad considering i didnt plant them and let mother nature water them.Free coffee!!!!
