Winter has arrived. It was a lovely sunny day today up here in the mountains. What a way to welcome winter by cooking a green chicken curry from scratch. I have just joined a women's cooking circle and I have met some wonderful ladies. We are from all ages (12-70 years) and different backgrounds, and we all come together to share our knowledge of food and cooking. We all had a go at pounding the ingredients to make the green curry paste with the mortar and pestle. It smelled so delicious as we were making and cooking it - and we get to eat it.... and this is a free group . Meanwhile, Lou was happily making playdough from scratch with the mobile minder (child care worker) in the next room.
Afterwards, Lou and I went to the park for a play and we came across these amazing mushrooms. They were so beautiful. I was amazed that they got to grow so big and flawless. There were a few that looked like some snails had eaten them.
I don't know what they are called but I was blown away by their beauty and their size. I don't think I have ever seen mushrooms so big in real life. Some of them were the size of a bread and butter plate.
I warned Lou not to touch them but he couldn't resist jumping over them....:)
