Mushrooms have been pushing up through the moss and dirt all over our property.
We took advantage of a foraging workshop at the community centre last Saturday. Turns out we have nothing edible. After an hour in the classroom we headed out into the forest. Under the guidance of the instructor we brought home chanterelles

and lobster mushrooms. The lobsters went straight into the stuffing for our Thanksgiving turkey.
I'm not a girl of expensive tastes and much preferred the lobster mushrooms to the chanterelles. The lobsters are much easier to find. Today we went into the forest behind our property and picked up a bag full.
They are destined for breakfast tomorrow, fried up with some thick slices of bacon. Oh yum.
It was a simple task to give genuine thanks for the forest bounty on our Thanksgiving plates.
Happy Thanksgiving Canada.
