I got the following video from George Bachmeier (LASD ret) and it is so amazing. I was just in awe at the unbelievable way this was filmed. It's worth a few minutes of your time to watch... I was concerned, then smiling, then my mouth just hung open!~

Here is one of my all time favorite recipes. Been making these forever... easy and GOOD!

Marinated Mushrooms
2 parts oil (olive oil or corn oil...whichever you prefer)
1 part lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
ground pepper
salt
Worchestershire sauce
dried basil
dried oregano
chopped fresh parsley
mushrooms

Mix oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic in bowl. Add mushrooms. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Worchestershire sauce. Add several pinches of basil, oregano, and chopped parsley. Let marinate at least 2 hours in refrigerator. Stir while marinating.

Serve them as a side with any dinner dish or lunch sandwich or with eggs for breakfast.


All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
