Hello everyone, hope you have a wonderful day so far! ๐Ÿค—

Today I made a quick and simple dish woodear mushrooms with veggies served with mung bean glass noodle. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

We know mushrooms are great health benefits for our immune system and itโ€™s crucial especially at this time to increase our natural immune fighting mechanism by incorporating more wholesome veggies into our meals. They are easy to make and delicious at the same time for a well balanced meal.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

As always, be inspired, be joyful, take a picture and Enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜‹โค๏ธ

We had eggs with mushrooms along with toast and crumpets for tonight's dinner here.

Baby gets given eggs in her dish to keep her fur nice and glossy!

A snack meal I do enjoy is mushrooms on their own on toast.

That sounds great Catgirl, Iโ€™m always happy to hear Baby is healthy, being spoilt and playful than ever! ๐Ÿ˜ปโค๏ธ

That's why Baby has lived to be 17 because she is ruined!

Tomorrow I am off to the cinema to see the new Bond film.

I haven't been to the cinema since just before everything shut down back in March 2020.

Aweee Baby, may your little fur baby live long and thrive since you take great care of her as we all should to our fur babies! ๐Ÿ˜ปโค๏ธ Iโ€™m excited for you to see the new Bond film tomorrow. Let us know how it goes. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

I havenโ€™t been back to the cinema over here as our masks are still mandated. Things should go back to normal by next year as we all are vaccinated by then. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Here in Wales masks are mandated in indoor places like cinemas but I decided to go along anyway as I feel life is too short and I feel extra strongly how life is for living not hiding away in fear.

Absolutely, enjoy your cinema time Catgirl. ๐Ÿ˜

Had a great day out today as we decided to make it a full day out to prove to ourselves that everything is fine and there's no reason to be frightened of indoor spaces like theatres and cinemas and yes everything was fine and there's no reason to be worried as we proved to ourselves and had lunch out at a traditional British restaurant in the city centre called Pillars and tried out some Taiwanese bubble tea which was a new experience which I enjoyed that I had wanted to do for ages.

The bubble tea is cold tea along with tapioca pearls in it.

I had thought that bubble tea was regular black tea that they blew bubbles in with a bubble machine up until today!

The Bond film was great and I bought a pumpkin from Marks and Spencer and also some winter squash to have a change from the usual butternut squash as I feel it doesn't hurt to try out new things.

Awe thank you Catgirl for sharing your good time experience with us! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™You have such great sense of humor about the bubble tea ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘ Gosh now you want me to go to my fav Taiwanese place called Meet Fresh to get some too. They have the tapioca pearls made out of cassava root so itโ€™s perfect and they also have hot dessert with peanuts and tofu with tapioca peals also. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

You are right, thereโ€™s nothing to be afraid of, we need to get back to our normal entertainment activities and I think Iโ€™ll look into showtimes at my local theatre for Bond film as you said itโ€™s so good. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Hope you have a wonderful dinner this evening as always! ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ‘

Simple and healthy dish to give you plenty of nutrients and an immune system boost. Have a good day ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—.

Thank you Zazen very much! ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™

It took me less than 20 mins to prepare a delicious meal and utilized all the simple veggies I have. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the day! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Morning GreatMindfulness, your dish looks great, wood ear are very nice in the soups I make, I have never tried them in a dish like you cook with glass noodles and veg, I think they would go very nicely together. I've got some very strange bitter mushrooms in their own brine in the fridge that my wifey buys from the market, I tried one and it was horrible. Apparently the only growing around the trunk of a eucalyptus tree so they are quite rare.

I thought you might be interested in what the look like so I just took a photo.

Bitter eucalyptus mushrooms.

Good morning to you Happyman4,

Hope you are having a great start of the day! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Iโ€™m sure you will like it with glass noodles as they serve like this in many restaurants here. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

Thank you for showing me another kind of mushroom. Hmmm I never had them, very interesting ๐Ÿง. For a second, they look like shiitake mushrooms. As I looked into it, there are 2 kinds which they grow mushrooms on mulch of bay and eucalyptus to utilize waste after oil extraction. What they find is the color of mushrooms will be more brown and spongy texture. However, those mushrooms grown on eucalyptus are more acidic than bay which explain the bitter taste. That means Thailand is very smart and doing great with recycling and conserve natural resources Happyman4 ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ‘

If itโ€™s bitter I think soup will be a good option to make it milder taste or bake a pie ๐Ÿฅง ๐Ÿค”

These one's grow around the tree where the leaves..my wife's uncle has eucalyptus trees next to her mum and dad's farm and they grow there about this time of year. She normally makes soup with them with the leaves of the rope vine leaves..confusing n'it ๐Ÿ˜‚I fancy some sound today with gourd and tofu, maybe try some in there with it๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Oh wow these are grown like straight around the eucalyptus tree, must be the oil essence that affects the taste. Definitely confusing and interesting at the same time the way she cooks. ๐Ÿ˜

Ooh gourd is soooo good I havenโ€™t had quite some time now. The combination you decided to have sounds amazing. Good choice! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

Am just getting ready to take my wife for her second vaccination, we will able to go to our farm in 14 days time without qurentin..it next to her dad's and uncles farms, it could be there will still be some mushrooms around the eucalyptus trees..๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
