    A buddy got me to go out and do a quick look this evening because of all that rain in the metro today. We found some monster yellows.

    In the SE corner I went back to a spot on a southern facing slope and found a few more but they were very dry. On the other side of the valley (northern facing slope) they were good to go. I'll head out again today hoping that the rain is causing another push but I fear that we are coming to the end. However, a couple of trees that I found a bunch last year (northern facing slopes) have produced nothing so far so I'm crossing my fingers that they just weren't quite ready instead of those trees just being done.

    My gut and the amount of dried and rotten morels I have found so far in the last couple days is telling me they are done for the season!?! Man do I hope I am wrong about the season being done but my food dehydrated was filled will dead tiny (pill bug type) creatures from this weekends finds this morning. The 30 or so I had found were way past prime.

    People had been talking about this year being a bumper crop but I ain't seeing it. A bunch of prior years spots produced nothing this season.

    From our New York friend: Bigfish1212

    Crisp up some pancetta in a pan then take out the crisp pancetta and set aside. Fry up your morels and some shallots in the pancetta fat until slightly browned then remove and set aside. Meanwhile take some boneless chicken thighs and coat in seasoned flour, after your mushrooms are cooked throw your chicken thighs in the same pan and brown on each side and remove. Then deglaze the pan with some white wine and reduce. And some chicken stock and put everything back in the pan and add your peas let it reduce and let your chicken finish cooking. Finish with some cream at the end.
    Enjoy http://i1369.photobucket.com/albums...9-D546-4CE1-A06E-780B25977722_zps3uqtgknf.jpg
    Bigfish1212, 10,000 taste buds AREN'T wrong. Your recipe was outstanding. I will not share my leftovers. No salt or pepper needed. The Pancetta was a great treat. A bit pricey for a cheapskate like me. I did add chicken broth and then thought it may be too runny, so i added cornstarch with the cream. I saw you served on a pasta side dish, could also use rice I guess. I wasn't having of that filler. What else you gotz...I'm cooking! Sorry to all, as I'm learning how to jumble multiple messages into one.

    MN Morel Dude, let us know how you do. I'm hoping the north slopes still have fresh morels, but all of this rain could cause issues now. Let me know if they are fresh and if you find any small or gray morels.
