Last week’s Chanterelles

Found a guy selling chanterelles off of Edgewater in Salem, on Nov 11. I bought a half pound for 3 bucks. Quite good, but rather mild. An Asian guy bought 15 pounds. For a restaurant?

Birria de chivo!

Went to Los Temos Taqueria just north of Salem, Oregon today for lunch. Wonderful birria de chivo and tortillas de maiz hecha a mano.. and the goat broth is a restorative.
