Went to the farmer's market this morning. The mushroom lady had beautiful oyster mushrooms. Also bought corn, avocado's, white and yellow peaches, plums, some blackberry syrup and Bavarian croissants. The mushrooms were terrific. 3 of us finished the soup off, mopping up the last of it with the croissants. Topped it off with a wonderful cantaloupe a friend brought over. Salud
