Visit the Virginia Living Magazine blog! Christine Ennulat writes about food adventures with her terrific sense of humour while offering mouthwatering glimpses of her experiments in the kitchen. W. Matthew Shipman contributes recipes that I have already started collecting - including a very beloved recipe for Magnolia Bakery Cupcakes. Tricia Pearsall and Daisy Khalifa bring wanderlust to my brain with their posts on places to explore around Virginia. And little 'ole me contributes gardening posts.
I'm slowly getting better and mildly shocked at how this flu kicked me to the curb. But, Willa and I did get out the other day to do a little weeding, to prep a bed for garlic planting. Our shiitake log offered up a mushroom over the weekend, which I promptly sauteed in butter and thyme and ate standing up, over the counter, because sitting down would just delay in my being able to devour it.
