Lost Morels

Morel mushrooms are a great delicacy, and they grow in Michigan in the wild. (When you saute them, they taste like steak!) You have to hunt for them, partly because morels are secretive, and partly because they get harvested by morel-sniffing Michiganders.

Most Michiganders who are into morels have a super-sekrit spot only they know of. They don't tell anyone where it is, and sneak out to that spot, often after dark, to harvest the tasty, rare morels. (I'm not kidding about the after dark part.)

Here's my secret: morels grow like crazy on my front lawn. Dozens of them. Every year. I walk out my front door and there they are. They don't grow on anyone else's lawn in the neighborhood--just ours. I don't have an explanation for it. Just my good fortune.

However . . .

My husband, whom I love more than life itself, contracted a lawn fertilizer company to goosh our grass. They came out a couple weeks ago. So this week, when I found this:

Are they safe to eat?  It rained a LOT in the two weeks between the times the lawn got gooshed and the time this year's crop sprouted.  Hmmm . . .

The question here is, do I love my husband more than I love morels?
