       Much as I love wild (forest and field) mushrooms, I do not gather my own, but buy them in the markets from those who know what they're doing. Unless you really know, I suggest you do the same.  That said.... I love it when they start to appear at the markets!

Wild (Forest or Field) Mushroom Omelet 

Total time: 20 minutes
    A sure sign of fall is when we start seeing cars parked along the sides of the roads, their owners gathering and/or selling wild mushrooms.  Use any type that appeals to you, wild or cultivated, a variety if possible.

Wild (Forest or Field) Mushroom Omelet Ingredients:


Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Cheese and Sage

Total time: 30 minutes
     Putting the herbs inside the chicken lets the flavor permeate the whole breast. They're finished with a simple basting sauce and a coating of Parmesan.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Cheese and Sage Ingredients:


Grilled Potato and Onion Salad

Total time: 35 minutes
   If you can get large, sweet onions, like Vidalia, they would be great here.  I used 2 red onions, also good! We used the same basket that we use for hamburgers.  If you don't have a basket, use a mat or grill pan. They get very light and very crisp!
