Happy Mushroom Month...Win $5,000!!!!
If you read your HG emails carefully, you already know that it's National Mushroom Month (woohoo!). To help celebrate, the Mushroom Council (yep, it really exists) is giving $5,000 to the winner of their "Make It With Mushrooms" contest. If you're a pro with a portabella or know your way around a shiitake, think about entering. If you haven't cooked with these squishy veggies before, give 'em a whirl -- they're low in calories, free of fat, and an excellent source of nutrients including several B vitamins, copper, potassium, and the antioxidant selenium. Mushrooms are our spongy friends! Good luck...
