We went for 2 entire months without mushrooms during lock-down last spring.
To be honest, it wasn’t a problem (as far as I know) in the stores….. It was me being fussy about produce.
I was doing all the shopping online and picking it up at the drive-through. I didn’t trust the store shoppers with selecting fresh fruits and vegetables. That attitude may change if we have a second wave.
One of the things I missed was mushrooms.
I’m happy with a lot of frozen fruits and vegetables but not mushrooms.
And canned mushrooms? Shudder….
There is actually a large section of a wide variety of canned mushrooms in French supermarkets. After growing up picking them off pizzas and refusing to eat the eraser heads in Cream of Mushroom soup I didn’t realize that mushrooms had flavor and were not made of rubber until I tasted a fresh one.
Now I even like them raw.

There are a lot of bridges going over the canal we ride along. Some are for foot traffic, some for farm tractors and some for cars. Sometimes are path goes under the bridge and sometimes we have to ride up and over them.
Some are modern concrete bridges and some, like this one, are old wooden ones:
Mon mari now has his very own electric bike to help him with the ‘up and over’ bits.
Pretty, isn’t it?
I’m taking the self-righteous attitude of ‘I don’t need one. I get more exercise without one’.
We’ll see how long that lasts….
