Grow Me, Blog Me: Winner #1

I hope you’ve all been having fun with your mushroom growing kits! I’m seeing a lot of chatter online about the mushrooms- the growing, the waiting, the care and attention and the recipes!

We know many of you are still growing, or have not had the time to get around to writing a post, so don’t worry, two more deadlines will be set very soon. However, we do know that there’s some “keeners” in the mix and we wanted to celebrate your mushroom growing accomplishments!

Mushrooms on the Grill

I hope you all got to spend the weekend in the sun like I did! What a beautifully warm weekend we finally had. I think this year has hit me particularly hard, with such a long cold snowy winter.

These are facts that seem way too scary and make me feel kind of old.

Whether you’re a fan or not, I’ve got some great game-time snacks that will have everybody cheering.
