1. Discover puffball, while hunting maitakes.
2. Take puffball and brethren home for photos to post on foraging sites. And for, well, you know, dinner.
3. Slit puffball to determine colour of innards. Pure white is good.
4. Peel puffballs and prepare foamy butter in pan.
5. Toss with foamy butter, then lemon juice and parsley from the chilly October terrace.
Eat puffballs. (And cheese never hurts. Well, mostly...depends, really.)
