My middle son. I just watched him pick all the mushrooms out of what passes for stuffing around here -- with apologies to L2 -- brown rice with chopped, onions and celery and (thankfully for #2)sliced mushrooms both white and exotic, sauteed and the finally baked. It's a favorite, even for #2 despite is eschewing all things fungi.
