Oyster Mushrooms from Northcutt Ranch
The Oyster Mushrooms are growing like crazy! Yesterday we made Pasta with Oyster Mushrooms in a tomato sauce. It´s definitely my favorite kind of mushrooms.
Chop a handful of Oyster Mushrooms
Fry in a frying pan with some salt and butter
Add: two tomatoes, ham, black pepper, parmesan, ginger, basil and two tablespoons of sour cream.
Serve with pasta
After dinner we went for a walk. We took Trigger with us and Neikka jumped the fence and joined us too.. When we got back we didn´t have any electricity or water. Luckily we have a lot of candles and the evening turned out to be quiet nice anyway. The electricity came back this morning. Makes things a little bit easier. Being without water is the most difficult part when you have children and animals. Especially during the warm season.
Today we´re going to look at some alpacas. I´m excited about that, I´ve wanted to have alpacas since I was a little girl. I have a project in mind making alpaca clothing as a small business. We´ll see about that, it´s still in the future. It´s going to be very interesting to visit the alpaca farm today and meet the animals.


  1. Mushrooms, wow!!! I love mushrooms! I remember when my mom always cook sizzling mushroom, it's so delicious I could eat the whole plate! I've dreamt of living in farms, away from the hustling cty scenes. Wishing it someday!

  2. Sounds delicious! It´s really easy to grow mushrooms even if you live in the city though:

    I hope You can make your dream come true one day :)
    I like the beautiful clothing you have on your web page!
    We are picking up our first four alpacas next week. It´s exciting!

  3. I've never heard of these mushrooms before...your sauce looks yummy...

    1. Thank You so much! You should try them out if you like mushrooms. The taste is a little bit like chicken if you fry them for a couple of minutes. They are really delilcious. You can order the start kit from or buy it at wholefoods (we did that). Doesn´t cost much (less than twenty bucks) and then you can harvest as many time as you like. They just keep coming back!


I´d love to hear what you think about todays post. Did you relate to the topic?
