Moran.

And though they don't have a distinctive taste like smaller mushrooms, they are quite good to eat. They're kind of like tofu in texture and the ability to take on whatever flavors they're cooked with. They can also be worth a few bucks to suckers like me. I tried one at a local farmers market just out of curiosity; had the purveyor slice me off a thick steak-sized piece and took it home and sauteed it in some butter and seasoning with eggs on the side. Was delicious, and I'd do it again.

Maybe I'm just not that romantic, but if my boyfriend told he had a surprise for me for our anniversary, and he presented me with a giant mushroom he found in our backyard, I'd seriously consider whether he'd recently hit his head on something.
