Yesterday I saw these amazing looking mushrooms at our local Chinese Supermarket.
They looked just so wonderful ...all 6 inches in length or longer.
I asked the young lass how to cook them. She said "cookim ?" and shrugged her shoulders
Being adventourous I thought Give them a go...
BIG MISTAKE for us
2 adults performing projectile v""""""" in unison at 2 a.m. isnt a nice sight.
Anyway ..Does anyone have any idea what we ate ??
And yes jon went off to work and I am getting ready for a bit of carpet cleaning

But ...I DID get the photograph!!

wow
its an amazing picture of the culprits lol
a similar thing happened to me and others (projectile vomiting) after easting what we thought were field mushrooms,

we later found out they were in fact field mushrooms but the farmer next door had just sprayed his fields and the residue from the spray is what made us so very ill.

hope you feel better now,
I even pulled muscles in my throat so could hardly talk, agggg

I reckon there ought to be a special award for those who've gone beyond the normal bounds in order to get such shots on epz! So glad you are both still standing! Both images are great. Really hope somone comes up with what you relly should have done with them, though goodness knows given that it could have been pretty much anything if it's Chinese medicine!

Perhaps they were meant to be dried, ground up and smoked; more for the head than the stomach? Sounds almost equally awful.
The photographs are very moody with excellent sombre tones.
Glad to hear that you're recovering at least.
