Sometimes my meal planning depends on what was on sale or what needs to be used up in my fridge. In this case it was a little of both. Mushrooms were super cheap at the grocery store and I bought 5 boxes so I had to figure out how to use some up.
Mushrooms really eat like meat. They are a good meat substitute and low calorie, too. My brother LOVES them. . . oh wait, no. . .he would rather eat a dirty sock than a mushroom. His wife loves them, though. So you know he has eaten his fair share of hidden fungus in the past 10+ years! (Forget you read that and stop scouring your oatmeal for mushrooms, J!)
