Monday, Monday, I love my job! I took the morning off and went for a walk in the woods. Jr and I happened upon a few Morels. This is one of my favorite times of the year to be in the woods. And finding a few edibles makes it all the better!

I had a couple small pieces of Deer Back strap a onion, and some garlic. and make us some lunch!!! :) It was a rough.. But we managed!!




Threw together some dirty rice Then we enjoyed it all on fresh Pita bread, Like a burrito!

Lunch looks great, but what's the deal with that knife?!? Not a spec of damascus or filework to be found! If I didn't know any better, I'd think Son was getting to you and Jr.! :biggrin:

Nice meal. I was hoping to find a bunch over the weekend but only found one monster morel. I donated that to the host farmer we stay with. Glad you and Randy Jr could enjoy some time in the woods.

Holy Crap Randy! That looks amazing!

You are just struggling through life, huh? It's the economy, you know. What are you going to do? You are living off of game and wild fungi. Hard times.

Beautiful, I love them fungi but would only recognize them in a basket in a grocery store... Morels with a cream sauce and pork tenderloin medallions on fresh pasta has to be one of my favorite things. Ever.

That is one thing I learned from my Grandfather who worked his butt off to raise his family with barely a penny to his name and lived off the land to make sure they were fed. But when we would sit down to a great meal like that or some grouse he would pipe in and say, "I wonder what the poor people are eating".

Good food shared with family - nothing is better.

Thanks, It was a good day, even with having my water heater fie as I was cleaning up the mess from lunch!! So we spent the rest of the afternoon changing out a water heater!! :) I just thank God that there was exactly what I needed in stock locally.. And the whole job went smooth as goose feathers!!! :)

I cant count the times we have went hunting only to find a few or none. What I like to do when we only have a few is make up some mushroom gravy or just eat them raw.

My favorite thing to do with morels are just simply, morels, butter, salt, pepper, cream (either reduce or use a bit of flour with the butter)
Then cut up some white bread, and get it golden and crispy with butter, add the morels and just go wild

Im always bragging on Randy Jr. and rightfully so. But today my youngest son Hunter came home from youth group. They went on a hay ride. and when they stopped to walk in the woods. Found a batch of morels and brought them all home to his daddy! I couldn't be prouder! lol

Hunter and I have enjoyed many mornings walking through the woods searching for these little fungus's! And we enjoy every minute. Now he has found us a new SECRET spot.. Guess where Im heading in the morning!?!?!

Its all about spending time with em. and sharing your passions and teaching em all that great stuff! Hunter is my Knife Knut with quite a impressive collection ranging from production folders to a couple of High end pieces. and a custom or 2 thrown in for good measure. Its fun to listen to him when he plays show and tell. Talking to his friends and even my friends.. Handing them a knife and telling them all about it, when it was made, and out of what materials etc. Makes me smile!! :) One day soon, Im sure Hunter will be joining us in this crazy thing we call knife making! :dazed:
