SuperSHEro Mushroom Stroganoff!

There are no pictures of this meal because it's UGLY. Like... Shrek's landscape ugly. But holy CRAP is it good! Wasn't even really planning on blogging it - just needed some lunch - but this is sublime, satisfying comfort food for the not-so-meatily inclined.

And given that I wore a cape for most of the day Sunday (it just feels so RIGHT!) - I'm naming it aptly...
