Why did the mushroom get invited to all the parties?

Because he's a fungi!

 This evening my mum and I took a trip to Asda. In the fruit and veg aisle, a member of staff was busy marking down products. Many crates of mushrooms were there, all being marked down to 10p per pack! So I bought six. I also bought six packs of lovely, juicey peaches, at 10p per punnet, and two punnets of raspberries, for 20p each.

So, no prizes for what I shall be eating tomorrow!

One of the punnets of raspberries has already been eaten, with yogurt, for supper. For breakfast I shall have a couple of wraps, filled with dry fried mushrooms, and maybe a little grated cheese. For lunch, I've chopped up three plums, and topped them with the rest of the raspberries. I'll take some yogurt to have with this, and probably put a banana and an apple in my bag, too. For dinner, the pasta bake that I had planned shall now contain mushrooms instead of sweetcorn. Then, I will have to think about what to do with the rest of the mushrooms! I might use them in a lasagne to have on Wednesday evening. Hopefully, there will be enough left for another couple of breakfasts.

As we walked around the shop, we came across another member of staff marking down cream cakes. We almost succumbed, but then remembered that we are weight watchers, and resisted!


  1. You could chop and freeze the mushrooms; if you put them in a plastic bag to freeze, it's easy to break them up and use however many you want. Frozen mushroms only take a minute of so longer to cook than fresh. Hope that helps.

  2. That's one of our favourite jokes! Garlic mushrooms, mushroom stroganoff, mushroom omelette, mushroom salad, mushrooms on toast, mushroom pate...I love mushrooms! (And well done for resisting the cream cakes!)
