 While I was working in the yard the other day,
Mr. Hawthorne was hard at work harvesting his mushrooms
and preparing our lunch.

He prepared no-yolk noodles,
sauteed the shiitakes,
and made a light cream sauce out of butter,
skim milk, heavy cream, and cream cheese.
Freshly ground salt and pepper to taste.

I tried to get his "recipe,"
but he couldn't remember what he'd done.
He just listed his ingredients.

 Top with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.

So simple, yet so good.

 And yes.
Homegrown shiitakes taste better.

Does he grow his own mushrooms on a log and everything?! How divine! Once again, I'm insanely jealous...
