Mushrooms on toast

Kitchen fairies has been quiet for a while because of an injury.  Straining your right hand is not a good plan for a right handed cook.  It is getting better, though some kitchen tasks are still a challenge - peeling vegetables, anything requiring strength eg. mashing and whipping - but at least I can chop again.  Typing and picture taking (my hand shakes on pushing the shutter) have also suffered.

Thankfully my habit of preparing far too much food meant I had an overstocked freezer, so have managed not to have to rely on take-aways - though I have been frustrated by it being painful and difficult to make fresh food.

But this morning, I will take it no longer... so made mushrooms on toast.  Chop and fry half a small onion and fry gently in olive oil, when softened add chopped mushrooms (1 field and 3 closed cup) and 1 clove crushed garlic.  Fry gently until water comes out of mushrooms, add 1 tsp grain mushroom, and toss around until it starts to fry again.  Take off the heat, stir in 1 tbsp natural yogurt, small handful chopped parsley and season.  Serve on hot buttered granary toast.  Yum.

Hand hurting too much to hoover (shame!).
