    A food experiment

    Every few days an email from Gojee winds up in my inbox with pictures of delicious delicious food to make me hungry. This week something came up that I _wanted. _It was a food so delicious looking I couldn't get it ouf o my head.

    Wild Mushroom Stroganoff.

    Wild Mushrom Stroganoff - what I wanted to make

    After begging every female I know to make this, I finally resorted to making it myself today. Sure enough, right after I decided to make it myself a friendly female decided to lend a helping hand! Bastards.

    By some act of magic or divine will I actually managed to buy all the correct ingredients on my first try, unlike when I was making cake.

    Apparently dry mushrooms need to be soaked ...

    Chop chop chop

    That pan has butter in it! Butter! Terribly against any modern notion of not-very-fatty food, but it makes all the difference.

    Right before the last integration testing

    Then something went wrong and it doesn't look that great

    Somehow my version didn't look that much like foodporn, but damn it was delicious! Definitely going to be making this again and I think I should start using Gojee more often. They actually have some good food there.
