It had been a lazy rainy day, we had the kitchen all cleaned up, and I was thinking nuked leftover grilled chicken for supper with maybe a Knorr’s Pasta side for a one pot and one plate meal. Bev, however, had other plans – sometimes she can’t help herself when the food prep gene takes over.
First she decided she wanted a repeat of the stuffed mushrooms we’d had a few days ago (you may remember the leftovers went into the recent breakfast scramble) and I readily agreed with this choice. This is the recipe and a couple of shots that turned out this time – the liquid in the pan is because we forgot that the shrooms were supposed to be cooked some prior to stuffing, step 3.

I haven’t done one of these posts in a while but this one was too good to pass up. Our friends, Dave and Laurie, brought us part of a box of portabella mushrooms and we had some cremini’s in the fridge so mushroom dishes were in order.
The first was a sausage mushroom quiche for breakfast using a recipe from Allrecipes and the second was stuffed mushrooms for supper using another recipe from Allrecipes. I failed to get a shot of the quiche and the stuffed mushroom ones weren’t good enough to post, but both dishes were very good and I would make either of them again.

Late June is a great time for veggies in our area as the summer crops are coming in and some late potatoes are still available. Bev decided to whip us up a meatless (hard for her) meal of corn, beans, potatoes, and tomatoes (the only part from our garden). The gourmet part is obviously in the
the beholder mouth of the eater.
The local pole beans were cooked with smoked bacon, onion, garlic, and spices; the new potatoes were just boiled in water then mashed on the plate with butter; and the cherry tomatoes were halved. Now for the corn – growing up, sweet corn was boiled in water and slathered with butter, salted and peppered and eaten from the cob, but since I married Bev I’ve discovered fried corn.
