Genius Ingredient Mushrooms


I set my alarm for you.  Yup, I sure did.  I set it for 5:50am, which is a really weird time to set an alarm for but last night it made sense in my head.  You see, Carson usually leaves around 5:30 and I typically wake up when that happens.  On rare occasions, I get up too, and when I do it is the best decision ever.  The house is mine!  Quiet, calm.  I can leisurely make coffee and watch the news instead of Max & Ruby.  I can blog!  But if I DON'T get up when Carson does, I wake up at 6:40 to a whining baby and I'm rushed, frantic and GROGGY as hell.  So I set my alarm for 20 minutes after Carson left, cause someone once said that's the perfect amount of time for a little snooze.  I don't think it worked, however, because THIS IS ALL EXTREMELY BORING INFORMATION.

The point is, I set my alarm for you because it's been too long since I've blogged, or cooked for that matter!  I wandered around the market like a lunatic yesterday trying to get back into it.  After being gone for awhile, we needed everything, so I bought everything and then went home and stared at it.  Do you ever have those days?  When you either want to cook nothing or everything??  I finally threw a dinner together, albeit a random one, and these mushrooms were a highlight.

A reader sent me this recipe not long ago: mushrooms sautéed in pickle brine.  It may seem weird at first, but when you consider that brine is a combination of salt and acid, then why wouldn't you use it to cook with?  Just a few tablespoons in these buttery mushrooms made them divine.  Pickle brine and I are now best friends, and will go everywhere together...

These are also great, if you can handle how OLD this post is and how teeny, tiny the photos are.

I tried a Pinterest recipe that was supposed to taste like chick-fil-a nuggets and the 'secret' was marinating the chicken in pickle juice. I'm not sure how closely it resembled chick-fil-a, but they were tasty!

Thank you for trying this! I will attempt it when I start cooking again!
