Anyway, what I meant to say is these delicacies are the other side of the coin. It has rained a lot, which is super boring, but the upside of rain is that mushrooms are slowly starting to grow. It looks like there’s going to be plenty.
I’ve been picking chanterelles and blueberries in the last days. World Book Club keeps me company and distracts me from the hordes of mozzies that inhabit the forest. Of course there are other tricks too, such as long sleeves and plenty of repellent.
Last night I shared chanterelle risotto and blueberry pie with a friend, both ingredients picked the same day. It doesn’t get any more fresh than that. We cooked everything together, talked, laughed and pondered over life. Slow living at its best.
♥ In the meantime: I’ve been very upset by the shootings lately, and what happened in Aurora is simply too much. What is wrong with this world, our values, the people we share life with? Do not understand.
