Every other month, we get a delivery of various foodstuffs from Azure Standard, which is a company in Oregon that has mostly organic foods and other health items. I had been mail ordering from them for about 15 years, but recently they have expanded so far south that I can now get a delivery from their truck route. This service now allows me to order the fresh produce, meats, dairy products, etc. that could not be sent through mail order. BO-nanza!
These beautiful crimini mushrooms, above, are greatly anticipated with each delivery. I try to always have a quart of super thick chicken bone broth on hand so that when we arrive home from picking up the goods, I can start right in to make this glorious cream of mushroom soup.
We eat our fill on this first day, and then have it again on a subsequent day. There is usually enough left over from those two meals to provide a mushroom “gravy” for an additional meal of some kind.
And yes, I get that delicious salad from them, too. The herb toast is from my homemade sourdough French loaf.
Sadly, this yummy meal is just a memory – to be repeated in mid-September.
