I was gonna make this yummy stuff but Safeway sells the dried shrooms @ $7.00 for a 1/2 ounce - call me cheap but that's a pretty expensive dip.

this is right up my alley. being a vegetarian, sometimes i get a bit bored with the dips and things that people will make for me while i'm visiting friends/family during the holidays, but maybe i'll make this one and bring it with me so there's something new in the mix. thanks for sharing this one!
