Apparently in Eastern European countries it is a nice family tradition to walk in the forest and pick mushrooms. My friends, Alex and Caroline, are from Poland and they love to do this! They say it is a nice time that grandparents spend with their grandchildren teaching them about the different types of mushrooms to eat. It’s a family event.
Here are some they picked and cleaned a couple of weeks ago. They brought me some chanterelles the other day- yum! They encouraged me to melt a little bit of butter, add salt and pepper, and lightly cook them in a pan. Delicious- I ate them all myself.
When we were in Greece we met a couple from Sweden. I asked them to tell me something about Sweden I wouldn’t know. They said most Swedish people eat tacos every Friday! I thought they were teasing me so I didn’t write it. Then today I met a young lady from Denmark and they are very close in location and culture. She said it is true for them as well. They love their tacos! I know in Texas some restaurants had Taco Tuesday but that was for an amazing deal on tacos!
Well, we are getting close to begin packing our things up here. I have been thinking about the blog and if it should just end. I will not be having much to write about I don’t think after we return. I am just going to pray about it for now. See what happens in our lives….
