Autumn and mushrooms. Help! I can not stand mushrooms. I know that mushrooms are healthy, except poisonous mushrooms, ha ha! Although the mushrooms are full of vitamins, those great vitamins do not get me to love mushrooms.

My childhood rule number one was that all food was edible. The basic principle is good, but the mushrooms became a nightmare for me. My father made sure that I and my sisters ate our mushroom sauce. Couple of hours at the dining room table I tried to get my mushroom sauce down the throat. Sometimes I had to vomit and then I came back to the table. Eventually my mother got my father to give up the mushroom project on the grounds that I quietly ate anything except mushrooms.

Even today I hate mushrooms, taste and smell. I have tried to eat mushrooms but it does not work.

My pink mind always finds the positive aspects of things. Mushrooms are nice looking. Red Amanita is very beautiful. I have a pillowcase with Red Amanita. I would also like to have a chair looks like a Red Amanita. I have seen that kind of garden furniture, which are really beautiful.

I love pink mushrooms. I have not seen a pink mushroom in the forest but I have seen photos of pink mushrooms. The photo above is my favorite almost pink mushroom photo. This purple and sometimes pink mushroom is a mystical and very beautiful Laccaria amethystina. This purple mushroom is edible but apparently tasteless. My almost pink mushroom might be perfect mushroom for me, if it really is tasteless. Pink and it’s purple cousin are my favorite colors in many ways.

What do you think about mushrooms? Do you like my pink mushroom?
