Before I tell you about today's dish, I just want to let you know that I finally found fresh chanterelles! Sue's Market sells them (along with many other mushroom varieties). They better taste awesome, because they are expensive.... almost $30/pound! At least I didn't need that much of these rare mushrooms. :-)

The stuffed portobello mushrooms were really tasty, but they're clearly meant to be an appetizer. We each ate two of these, and they didn't fill me up. Time-wise, I think it would also be smarter to make a dozen at a time instead of 4. It's not worth the amount of time for 4 mushroom appetizers. BTW, if you're a vegetarian and still reading, Mushroom suggests sun-dried tomato as a substitute for bacon.

Today I confirmed that I bought way to much baby spinach last week! I needed spinach for recipes that called for 5 and 6 cups each. It looked like each box held perhaps 4 cups of spinach, so I bought 3 boxes. Sadly, I still haven't finished the first box that I opened!

I'll have to check my other books for spinach recipes. And maybe make some more of that spinach-mushroom-pancetta salad. :-)

You know, you can often find chanterelles in High Park in the summer after a rain. I look for them every time I am in a treed area now. I first went mushroom picking with my uncle on Vancouver Island, but I have found Chants in Ontario, here in Germany and in Bulgaria too.

Spinach is great with scrambled eggs, well, to help use it up, I mean, but it is good :)
