OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Walking Woods, with Many Friends, Lovers, and a Lens! Oh, how the love we feel, the love we seek, is ever present, and how far and wide each individual can spore, everyone different, trillions of thousands of Mycelium, and still no two the same, no two the same. Some with thoughts of harvest, some with thoughts of worships, some with thoughts of pulling parasites, others with thoughts of loving collaboration. As the Teachings of the Woods, The Down Under Places that eat the life, the down under life, living, beating Being. Down under, I heard a tree fall in the forest, I heard it fall, Tree Being Hear. In a time, not so long ago, in soaring air, and rays downward flow, was a snail. A snail who saw and who sought, the things of little. A snail that moved in a gliding over gilded forest floor of pine-cone pinewood arrows. What the snail found, the snail always knew, but a hawk wanted that too. ‘Tis the time of dancing whirls, of heaven swirls, of beauty curls, and so, this is how Hawk and Snail are known to one another. Snail rode in Hawk, Hawk around Snail, and so they danced and unfurled in their ways. Gulyas Blessings to ALL! (c) 2013, 2014 Summer L. Farkas Takács–Michaelson, CH


Hungarian Pacific Northwest Chanterelle Gravy :)

It’s mushroom season, not only in the Pacific Northwest in North America, but in Sister Hungary and Ukraine as well!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is a tasty, tasty sauce to serve over fried fish, snail, or rabbit chunks over paella. This sauce is so good to be enough for paella itself, or one may use it to dip a sandwich, eat a steak, a salmon fillet, off a spoon, over fresh cooked green beans, with pasta.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Start by heating up some butter in a pan. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAdd chopped onion and chanterelle mushrooms, saute. Make a roux on the side with some chicken stock or bone broth, quarter cup of oat flour (or flour of your choice) with a cup of broth.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA When the onions are translucent, add the roux directly to your onions and mushrooms in butter. Add Paprika, salt and pepper to taste! Now, stir in another 3 cups of bone broth, simmer until gravy thickens to desired consistency, approximately 7-10 minutes.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Check seasoning again, serve on anything and everything!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA


PS: I cook paella with bone and veggie broth for the liquid, to boost nutrition, color, and adjust starch digestion. A great way to add extra nourishment to grain, and helps with digestibility. 🙂OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
