Mushroom Pate

Mushroom Pate, originally uploaded by TWiNKiE CHAN.

Soooo, tonight we are making our own wontons, but my snacky-organz got antsy while Hairy was at the store, so I busted out some of our booty from a trip to Cost Plus:


I have never had this before. It was a fungus-fueled adventure.

I left the sound as-is (no editing or music) because some of the crunchy noises are fun in the end. Plus you can hear me watching Nat'l Geographic in the background!

(I'm a little sad that Photobucket is warping my preview image on videos. Oh well! Sorry for the Zoolander mouth!)

Ultimately, it tastes and smells like slightly-more-seasoned Cream of Mushroom Soup. Not bad. Not great!

Sometimes you just need salty and sweet at the same time....and sometimes you need to IMPROVISE!!!!

Check out a mouthful of Carnation hot cocoa and SEAWEED!!!!!! Cruncha muncha!

N.B.: Korean snacking seaweed has really great, toasty flavor, and is light and delicate (but a little oily). I prefer the flavor over the Japanese snacking seaweed. We tried to make sushi with Korean seaweed once and it just fell apart because it was so thin. SADZ!!!
