Be careful that you don't encounter the Lambton Worm.

I've only ever met Worms made of pyrotechnics. I wonder what a real Worm looks like.

I have no desire to find out.

You may have a point there. I don't want to become a scorched hobbit.

Marinated grilled portobello mushrooms

20 large mushroom caps
3 dl olive oil
4 tablespoons sesame oil
6 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons lemon juice
salt to taste

Mix the marinade and pour over mushrooms. Marinate for 1-2 hours. Grill mushrooms, briefly 6-10 minutes. Eat with freshly baked bread.

You could have a Worm breath on them for a second or two and get the same effect.

It would speed up the grilling.

I just wonder, if I invite people to 'Taste my delicious Worm Breath Mushrooms!' - will they, instead of eating them, pass the mushroom bowl around and around like a mathom?

Maybe one of the guests all say: "I'll take a Stab at that."

Or a Sting?

Here is another. I hope you like.

Oyster Mushrooms with Wild Rice

Wild rice
Vegetable stock or water
Oyster mushrooms
Sliced shallots
Minced garlic
Olive oil
White wine

Cook wild rice in vegetable stock or lightly salted water as indicated on package. Cut off tough stems from oyster mushrooms. Heat some olive oil in pan, sauté shallots for a minute or so, add garlic. Add the oyster mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and let the mushrooms brown a bit. Once the mushrooms and the wild rice are done, turn down heat, add the rice to the pan. Pour a glass of white wine over it and let cook over low heat a little until the wine is absorbed. Serve with chopped parsley.

I'll have to take a Stab at that recipe.
