New Ingredient: Porcini Mushrooms, dried

Organic, dried porcini mushroom slices.

An ingredient required for my second "go for the gusto" recipe is dried porcini mushrooms. I had stopped at multiple stores over 2 days looking for them. The stores I'd been to either didn't carry them at all or were out of them.  I gave up the hunt as I needed to get this recipe rolling for dinner tonight. 

I arrived home from yet another store and explained the situation to Rodney. Rodney determined the porcini's were a must-have. Out to the store he went. After two stops, he scored those imaged above.

Dry organic porcini mushrooms, $7.99/oz, available at some Ralph's locations.
