Morels!

My favorite mushrooms are morels. Late next month and in April is usually morel hunting season. I usually only find a handful but 4 years ago I found 800. It was the mother load of mushrooms. I cleaned them all in my bathtub because we had so many. Then I gave about 200 away and then froze a bunch And dehydrated a bunch.  But I couldn’t wait  till next month so I ordered some from forestglory.com. They have some amazing deals sometimes like buy one get one. They are also on Facebook.  And they are so amazing! I just rehydrated them for about an hour cut in half, then floured them and fried in butter. Another way is to dip in egg then dip in crushed ritz crackers and fry in butter. So good 😊

Then of course a big pot of clams, shrimp, king crab and sausage goes great with morels! 😬👍

A sweet tea place in KS, the Oklahoma state fair and Aquarium! 

Here is a sweet little gem we found in coffeyville KS. It’s called Garden Thyme tea room and they have the yummiest lunch!  It’s in a old house and all the rooms are themed and cute!  The first time we went the girls got grilled cheese and tomato soup. I got the seasonal grilled cheese with wild rice soup. Both came with veggie chips and a pickle. This grilled cheese was amazing. It had cheddar, sliced apples and apple butter in it!  My youngest daughter actually ate all my wild rice soup so I took her yummy creamy tomato soup. Lol. The second time we went was for Gracie’s 9th birthday and we did the High Tea. They served us a yummy gingerbread tea in real tea cups and saucers and then we got a huge tower of yummy little sandwiches and desserts. It was a great place to go!We also we to the Oklahoma state fair. It was huge with every ride and food you can think of. We loved the nursery building where you went it and saw baby animals being born all day! It was amazing. Kinsley almost ordered her cheese pizza with scorpions on it because we thought it was a joke but nope. They really put those and crickets and worms on pizza! We played some games, won some toys and check out the exhibits. But didn’t ride any rides. 

We also did the aquarium for Gracie’s birthday. It was a lot of fun with the touch tanks!
