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!~

1 part lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
chopped fresh parsley
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.
