I wanted something refreshing for lunch today so I made a caprese sandwich. I washed it down with some iced green tea (homemade, unsweetened).

It's a multigrain bread by "Dave's Killer Bread" (I buy it a Safeway).

We are going to have corned beef with cabbage and potatoes for dinner tonight. Late for St. Patrick day, but better than not...

No, no Irish gene here, but an occasional corned beef meal hits the spot.

I was hoping I could buy stock in Dave's but it is privately owned.

Dirty Mushrooms

I have become a fan of button mushrooms, but have always wondered about the little bits of black stuff that are stuck to some of the store boughtin little tubs.
Not all... cuz the ones that cost $2.00 or more are mostly very clean, but since I prefer the $.69 price range, have always wondered about the why's and wherefores.
Are those black specks really dried cow dung? Am I likely to get sick? haven't yet... in the past three or four years of eating them.
Should I wash them all when I get home?
They were in the veggie section cooler when I bought them. Do they need refrigeration?
Is there a way to store them so they don't turn brown?
So I looked up "dirty mushrooms" and this is what popped up.

FAQs about Mushrooms: Are they Very Dirty or Very Clean? | Shelf Life Advice

Now I know what to do...

From the link you provided, I got this:"The dark specks you might see on mushrooms in the store are bits of peat moss." So, it is all right.

I do not eat raw mushrooms and always cook them, so never worry that much about the dark specks, although the thought of them possibly being manure never crosses my mind.

Leftover pizza for "brunch". At our favorite Mexican restaurant, Enchiladas Del Norte for dinner. Gonna be some Bluebell ice cream very shortly for dessert while we watch a Redbox flick. Or two flicks.

I made fideua for dinner today. This time, I used some ground beef instead of chicken or shrimp/squid as customarily used. Oh, quelle horreur!

I shall go into hiding now from the Spanish Inquisition.

If caught, I will plead for leniency saying that I did use a few slices of Spanish chorizo hard sausage I had left, but that was not enough and the ground beef was used as a protein supplement.

PS. I used 1/2 lb of vermicelli for 2 people. DW and I ate it up after having a small salad. There was no left over. Hey, it was not bad even if not authentic.

Didn't each much during the day, but for supper we had peas, sweet potato cobbler and pork loin. This was my first time making a sweet potato cobbler and I was flying by the seat of my pants. Turned out pretty good...next time I think I'll add apples.

Some crackers, an apple, a banana, and a four-egg omelet with diced ham and jalapeno peppers, finished off with cheddar cheese.
