Wow!, that sounds good and esy and only one pan. what more could you
want. I know you can't do this, but I might do it and trow some left over
wine into the pan with the vegetables. I can, also use the onions as I
have no cats as I am allergic to them, which is too bad, because I would
enjoy the company and regular dog walking gets to be a bit much with the
rollato walker. I just have to be no too lazy to slice them. When I feel
really lazy I actually buy sliced crimini mushrooms form Trader Joes,
otherwise I get them whole at Fairway. Lucky me to have all the nice
stores so near-by adn Zabars is just 7 blocks away, a short walk for me
these days.
