Turkey Sausage with Oyster Mushrooms and Snap Peas

Thank you all for your kind words and concern recently. My kids are recovering well from the stridor, but still have that persistent cough, so I'm keeping them home for the rest of this week as a courtesy to the other parents even though they are not contagious. I live in a culture where parents frown upon coughing kids around their own, and I know I'm beginning to feel panicky when I hear another child's cough within the vicinity of mine. Yes, I'm becoming a germophobic too.After bringing the kids to their pediatrician last Saturday, I had a chance meeting with my gf C of LCOM as we bumped into each other at the our favorite chinese restaurant. After lunch, we did an express asian market trip (like 5 mins) together where I quickly grabbed some veggies and dashed off to bring the kids home for their naps. It was on that trip that I spotted some oyster mushrooms with C. She had since messaged me and asked what I was going to do with the oyster mushrooms, so I decided to do this post. Made a quick stir-fry with extra lean turkey sausage, shallots, snap peas and oyster mushrooms. Tigerfish had a vegetarian oyster mushroom post recently, and I can't wait to see what LCOM made with hers. As usual, Hubs ate around the mushrooms, which meant more for the kids and me.For san.y who asked me what oyster mushrooms looked like, here's a picture of it.

Hi Big Boys Oven,
LOL! I need easy, simple dishes right now.

Hi Alice,
I used the Jennie-O brand of extra lean turkey sausage, and it tastes and looks like a keilbasa sausage. You can't even tell that it's better for you. :)

Hey C,
Haha! That's what friends do! Wonder which 2, and I can't wait!
Yum!

Hi Nora B.,
Thanks! Mushrooms are fun, and you're most welcome!
