I just got home from an insane day at work. Its cold and rainy outside. I still have to clean up my apartment and pack for Thanksgiving. I seriously cannot wait to be on the train headed home for the weekend. I want to head to the gym in a bit but I need a break from my day. I’ve got my hot water with lemon (sounds weird, so good) and I’m taking a break to write a blog post. Stuffed mushroom.
Let me start by apologizing. I failed to take even half way decent pictures of these. Seriously. I mean, you’ll see. I meant to take pictures when I put them on a serving plate at Megan’s but I totally forgot. You’ll just have to take my word for it that they were good.
Or… OR!!!!… Addi, Ken, Megan, Caitlin or someone else who had one could comment…
I decided to make these after I saw this over at KathEats. They looked so good and seemed really easy to make. (Haha, and I usually say I don’t like mushrooms. They’re growing on me though.) I had to amend the ingredients based on what I have. I used rosemary and pecans instead of sage and almonds. I also decided not to make the bacon ones because I wouldn’t know what to do with the rest of the bacon. Thanks to Kath for the inspiration.

And I swear, they will look more appetizing than my pictures make them look. 😦
These are really easy and would make a super great appetizer for any Thanksgiving meal, if you’re looking for last minute ideas.
Also, check back in tomorrow. My friend, Addi, had a recipe she wanted to share with me. I asked if she wanted to do a guest post. Tomorrow will be “Roasted Veggies in a Foil Pouch a la the Bronx” brought to you by Addi.
Get ready for Thanksgiving!!!!!!
