Looking good Judy.

I have a delicious recipe from Holland America Lines that includes sauteed Morel mushrooms, scallions, blanched asparagus, a cream sauce and gnocchi.

It's delicious, especially if you saute the mushrooms and the scallions with minced garlic. I substituted Bertolli Alfredo sauce in a jar for the cream sauce, and the end result was superb.

And what inspired me to use this recipe was a visit to Trader Joe's, where I picked up the package of gnocchi, which cooked up perfectly.

Great job, Judy!

When do frogs come out? She needs a resident frog in her garden.

The morels showed up last spring. I wait until they're starting to dry out, then pick 'em and shake the spores around the garden area, hoping they will spread. Last yea we had two, this year, five.


Ditto on an Anchorage TJ's.


The frogs have wandered into the rock garden occasionally, but they prefer more moist areas, like the back of the shop, in the strawberry patch.
