Found old burdock root, wild salsify roots and bacon in the frige. Unlike plants, green bacon needed to be thrown out, crud. That"s OK we have bacon or lamb fat in a cup by the stove... Hmm? Black furry stuff on the fat, throw that out too, double crud. No problem, I can use the old stand bye of butter and olive oil. Dawn from work let me take some of her button mushrooms home, thanks Dawn. We also have garlic and chive blossoms in our yard. The only pasta we have are Udon (Asian) noodles, good enough.
The plan... Boil then cool the noodles while sauteing the burdock root, salsify and mushrooms. When things look good add more butter some chopped garlic so the toppings will cover the noodles better. Last I will add the chive blossoms for little blasts of fresh onion flavor.
Everything smells and tastes good so far. Hmm? Theresa is home early... So much for the finished food shot.... going to be good.
Type at ya later.
