Mushroom Stroganoff

Posted By Kerri

A typical conversation in our house at the moment goes something like this:

Stephen: “We haven’t decided on dinner for tomorrow night have we?”
Me: “No, I was just wondering about that”
Stephen: “What do you feel like having?”
Me: “Dunno”
Stephen: “What about some fish or something Mexican?”
Me: “I guess. What about (insert random ingredient) instead?”
Stephen: “OK, what shall we have with it?”
Me: “Dunno”

And then poor Stephen is left wandering around the supermarket after work trying to think of something we might both like that includes the very specific vegetable or piece of meat I’ve requested. Which is a very long winded way of saying that I’m not feeling very creative when it comes to food lately and I’m also being very indecisive and Stephen is being very patient. That’s how we came to eat mushroom stroganoff earlier this week, after I’d decided that I fancied mushrooms.

As well as putting up with my random requests, Stephen has also been doing most of the cooking lately since he has been getting home earlier than me. Consequently, I’m not really sure how he made this but I do know it was based on this recipe. I could ask him I suppose but I’m about to hit him with my request for something with radishes for tomorrow night’s dinner and I think I might be pushing my luck.

    Thhis sounds very like the converstatons we’re having at the moment! As we have a load of mushrooms that need to be used up this sounds like the perfect recipe.

    That looks delicious. Have only just managed in the last couple of years to convince my Mr that mushrooms are good. I am so anal about food running out. I food plan in 2 week blocks. Maybe I should lighten up.

  3. Stephen did a great job. I like the touch of thyme sprig.

    Thanks, Sandi. I normally plan ahead too but things are just too busy at the moment and food ends up being wasted.

    Glad I’m not the only one, Jules! It would be brilliant for using up lots of mushrooms, particularly if you have some interesting varieties.
