Dear Aunt Nettie,
My husband just loves mushrooms and is always asking me to make a mushroom dish. I have a few recipes, but I need some fresh ideas and thought you could help.
Well Howdy there Deanna,
You bet yer mushroom caps I kin help. Why, I thinks I loves mushrooms almost as much as yer hubby does. How 'bout stuffin' 'em with somethin' like an Italian Bread Salad, only better 'cause I done perked up the recipe. Now you jes take one taste, and I'll betcha you'll be dancin' the tarantella. Nice thing 'bout this recipe is y'all don't even have to cook them mushrooms or nothin' that goes inside neither. These mushrooms make a dern good starter. They's even fun to bring to a pot luck! I surely hope y'all enjoy 'em.
Yer ever lovin' Aunt Nettie
WALNUTTY MEDITERRANEAN MUSHROOMS
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
1 medium tomato, de-seeded and diced
Aunt Nettie grew up on the farm. She did not eat out of a can or reach into the freezer. There was no microwave to pop her food into. Everything she made was from scratch. All the food she ate was natural, without pesticides. It was grown right there on the family farm, and she had to cook to survive. At eighty-three years young she still leaps and bounds around the kitchen and can shake, rattle, and roll those pots and pans with the best of them.
Nowadays, Aunt Nettie just shakes her head and complains, "Nobody cooks anymore. They have no idea about puttin' a meal together." She's on a mission. She wants to help those younguns eat better so they can grow up healthy like her own eight kids.
