Cedar Plank Roasted Mushrooms
By Todd Johnson
DirectionsDice mushrooms into 1" pieces. Place in a bowl with the olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Add parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme and Porcini mushroom rub. Toss until the mushrooms are completely coated.
Chef Howie has the Porcini rub and cedar cooking planks available on his website at plankcooking.com. You can also find the planks at Made in Washington stores and at selected Larry's Markets.
Place mushroom mix on the cedar plank. Bake in at 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes until the edges are golden. You can serve the mushrooms right off the plank. Serves 2.
Recipe from John Howie, Seastar Restaurant
Mt. Vernon fire fighters hard at work.
On May 2, I found a newly built Dark-eyed Oregon Junco nest in one of my hanging baskets. By May 9 we had 4 eggs. This past Monday, May 18, the eggs hatched, 3 between 9am and noon, the final one during the night into Tuesday.
I know this is a "played out" location - but I couldn't resist as the weather was so nice tonight!
