My First Taste of Morel Mushrooms

My wife served wild morel mushrooms last night for the first time ever.  Now I know why people pay in the neighborhood of $20/pound for this rare delicacy.  Morel mushrooms are amazing.  My tennis buddy found some on a recent hunt and offered me a generous supply.  My wife served them as a side dish with a main course of vegetable lasagne.  I thought I died and went to Heaven.  It was one of my best meals of all times.  Too bad morels are only around for a limited time.  They are certainly worth hunting for.  Thank you, Terry, for sharing the spoils.  I continue to be awed by all that Iowa has to offer.
