About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Mushrooms & Vitamin D

A surprising fact was gleaned from the BBC programme, "Britain's Favourite Foods" last night.

Where we can synthesize Vitamin D in our skin, when it is exposed to sunlight, apparently so too can mushrooms even after they are picked!

Mushrooms are grown in the dark but when exposed to sunlight they synthesize vitamin D.

So what did I do today? Yep, popped out bought some mushrooms and left them in the sun for an hour. Excellent to feed son who hates going in the sun. Mushrooms on the menu tonight then!
