Summer is all about casual clothes, casual living and casual eating. We like simple meals made more tasty by mixing half meat and half fresh mushrooms. Oh, and if you can eat it with your hands, like Lamb Pita with Tzatziki, even better! #FreshMushrooms #EatMoreMushrooms #FunwithFamilyandFriends #BringOnSummer2018 #easycookingeasyeating #lickyourfingers #blendability #mushroomswitheverything #mushroomrecipeideas
