The rains come and bring...

Delicious mushrooms!

 Got these this morning while wandering around the property. These delicious fungi grow wild under our forest of pine trees. There are lots of varieties growing but these are the only edible ones that I believe we have growing.

So, to take advantage of the freshness, I think for our main meal today we are going to have some sauteed mushrooms in butter with a little finely chopped garlic, along with some steak.  The steaks down  here are  not usually 1 or 1.5 inches thick like in the US, but cut about a 1/2 thick.

Our crop of chilies last year brought us quite a bit of pesos to supplement the cost of the ranch operation. We harvested about 50 large burlap bags of the gems and each bag brought us about 500 pesos or about 40 dollars. We pulled all the plants out except for a few to use for ourselves this season.

This season on our lower property by the road we have planted zucchini squash, last year that was the dirt we had our potatoes in.
