Mushrooms: Not always magic
It's been ages since we've explored the recipe files of Jeanne Metzger Feinberg. Let's see what's for dinner.
Hmm. Is that a bowl of eyes? Because I'm pretty sure it's staring at me.
I also give you one illustration of the fact that mushrooms go with everything, just for the halibut.
I'm not a big fan of fish, but is halibut really supposed to be that color?
Concerned reader Grammarian points me toward this article on "the doyenne of food writers" Elizabeth David. Her comments are quite funny, but, seriously, if she thought Italian Salad is the "most revolting dish ever devised," I beg to differ, and offer as evidence bologna wedgies, supper sandwiches, and meatza. If you have a favorite revolting dish, do share.
UPDATE: Punkinsmom offers a Scandinavian treat.
UPDATE UPDATE: I see your ancestors' jellied fish in tomato juice and raise you my Scottish grandmother's potted head. Um, not actually her potted head. But, still. (For the record, she hated haggis and was otherwise a marvelous cook.)
