Champiñones y Hongos

The rain also brings mushrooms  or in Mexico champiñones or hongos.  Talking to my house keeper she referes to them as 'venomous hongos'. If you search hongo fotos on Google you will mostly get hallucinogenic. If you search champiñones you will get the edible kind. A number of internet articles intermix the terms but in general use in Mexico hongos are not for cooking. I never did find a similar foto like the one above.

As long as you know your hongos Leslie

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
