      those sound like good ways to cook mushrooms. I love them. My kids don't but I do. One christmas eve, I marinated them in cheese and a little salt and vinegar. That was really good too. That was a real treat eating those and watching It's a Wonderful Life. That's one of my all time favorite movies. I was brought up on all those old movies. Speaking of eggs, I've got some in their kitchen. Scrambled eggs sound good. Unfortunately no mushrooms around today.
