Shroom Adict
This is the story of an addiction.  An obsession that took its toll on my wallet, my health, and even my pallet, changing the way I perceive tastes and smells.  I’m talking mushrooms—not the sad, pre-sliced, pre-packaged white buttons or even the bolder but overused Portobello.  I’m talking mushrooms worth toiling for, worth walking for, worth trudging a mile in the snow and another mile back; mixing them into a stew with still frozen hands.
We’re not talking psychedelic mushrooms here.  It’s the edibles: shitakes, trumpets, chanterelles and the like that drove me over the edge.  
It began, like most heavenly things, with trumpets: savory, buttery trumpet mushrooms, with a texture somewhere between chew and crunch—like nothing I’d eaten before.  I was carpooling back from winter break with my boyfriend, Robin, when we stopped at a Whole Foods.  Robin has been my companion and bag-Sh

So i had completely forgotten about this, but i was looking at an old photo i posted here a few years ago and you had commented talking about me talking about a picture i had taken that you wanted to use in a project...i can't for the life of me remember what the photo was that you used, but apparently your professor thought that what i said was really insightful. XD
