Having survived the MTA's secret Saturday schedule (they post one thing regarding subway service changes and do something else) we made it to Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx and walked amongst trees and leaves and chickadees. We saw no more mushrooms.
But had some waiting at home. Take Two on the oyster mushrooms: risotto. Very simple - garlic, rice, mushrooms, white wine, stock, parsley from the terrace. And I sauteed some big steaks of mushrooms to have on the side: olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. These were fanTAstic.
Peeled and sliced Honey Crisp apples for dessert. Bought them from Pacific Gourmet on Court and Pacific Streets ( who also have very good deals on olive oil, best I've seen. I think Trader Joe's across the road is hurting their business). I've never seen Honey Crisps anywhere other than farm stands or market tables before. They crackle and then drip with sweet juice.
