the weekend  
It was a good weekend. Saturday was pretty rainy, so it was a good time to finally finish getting our house back in order and looking splendid. Then we went out for Vietnamese food and gelato with our friend Lisa, which was lovely.

Then on Sunday, we went to Kennett Square, the self-proclaimed "mushroom capital of the world," for their annual Mushroom Festival. No, not that kind of mushroom, sadly. We ate mushroom spring rolls, cheese fries with mushroom gravy, grilled portabella, and a steak and mushroom sandwich from the Brown Derby's booth which was really exceptional. There was live music, amusement rides, the unescapable crafts & tschotschkes booths, and of course lots of mushrooms. We went home with some baby portabellas, trumpets and oysters that we'll turn into some mushroom soup some night this week. Yum!

Fries with cheese AND gravy? Even to me that sounds a little excessive...

Excessively delicious.

Yeah, maybe if it wasn't MUSHROOM gravy. :P
