Thursday in my kitchen – Mushrooms in cream sauce

Thursday evening I came home from work, ate a handful of almonds and three Brazil nuts, got back in the car and drove to the airport to pick up a friend.  We got home together two hours later and we were hungry.  Inspecting the fridge we found: pulled pork, roasted chicken, a few sorry looking pieces of cooked broccoli and a container of sour cream. Not much to eat for two vegetarians. But in the vegetable drawer there were treasures to be found: a few cucumbers, a container of mushrooms, fresh dill and radishes from the community garden and a head of lettuce….  a delicious dinner was on its way – fresh salad and
