Monday Musings






A barn somewhat hidden way behind all the vegetation.That was all I could come up with today.




Okay you ready for a recipe?  I am on a veggie quest.  We made them and they were delish.

Another veggie one from Pinterest - I LOVE PINTEREST!  I actually am grateful for it.



Easy Stuffed Mushrooms


Yield: 24 appetizers
Prep Time: 25 min
Cook Time: 45 min

Ingredients:

1 lb white button mushrooms
1 (10-ounce) tube Jimmy Dean Pork Light Sausage (or 10 ounces of any sausage)
sprigs of Italian Parsley for garnish, optional

Directions:

1. Clean mushrooms. Pat dry and gently pull off stems. Cut rough ends off of the stems & then chop the rest of the stems finely. With a small spoon, gently scoop out centers of mushrooms.
2. In a medium bowl, mix chopped stems and mushroom meat from the centers with the sausage. Fill mushrooms with a spoonful of sausage mixture. It's okay to mound up the sausage slightly since it will tend to shrink down when cooked.
2. Arrange in glass baking dish with 3 tablespoons water in the bottom of the dish.
3. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
4. Top each mushroom with a tiny sprig of Italian parsley (if using) and serve immediately.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

LL Cool Joe said...

We should start each day with a grateful heart, but I started mine with a case of heartburn. :D But now I'm grateful that's all it was. ;)

Sandra said...

a cheery mail box for the mail man to see each day, would love to get behind the weeds and see what else is there with the barn

Cheri said...

That recipe looks yummy. I am the only one that loves mushrooms.

Cranberry Morning said...

Sandie, your Scripture and photo at the beginning are just a perfect and beautiful reminder to us.

I hope you are doing well. I know this has been a tough time for you.

May you be aware of God's blessing during the coming week.♥

Beth said...

I love stuffed mushrooms and this recipe does sound easy. Thank you Sandie!

Debbie said...

Neither of my girls like mushrooms, but the husband loves them and I rarely fix them. I think he would absolutely love this.

And I have a pot of Italian parsley too!

I agree with Annette!

I am addicted to barns. If you find anymore post them. When I was a kid. I see barns all my life. Even my sister had a farm. As I never ever thought back then as Barns anything. Took them for granted. So now I look to take pictures myself now.
Oh how cute are this mailboxes.
I dont see nay cute ones either of mailboxes. You driving around you got some cute bonus shots.

I want a stuffed mushroom now. Except the only one that'll do is my Dad's stuffed mushrooms that he makes at holidays. He uses FRESH, from the butcher shop sausage and since eating his..no other one will ever come close. :(

Lynn said...

Those 'shrooms look yummy!

Jim said...

Hi Sandie [ :<)] ~~ Barns are interesting, partly because it is always a mystery as to what is in them. I envision an old Ford truck.

I like your new header, the words better than the picture.

The recipe? Sounds great!!!! Right now I have two mushroom growing in the back yard. How many more will it take to make a half recipe of them?

Love your new header picture and scripture, Sandie! Very nicely done! I'm just starting to get more interest with Pinterest, but you are right, I love it and I think it is wonderful too! That looks like a good recipe too!

I LOVE mushrooms. A NEW recipe for them is GREAT. The mailbox is adorable. I used to have a CAT for mine. It is long gone though. Bet the frogs are cute too. Have a GOOD day. Take care.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

This is one recipe I didn't pin after seeing you pin it ONLY because I'm not a mushroom fan. But usually everything else you pin, I pin! LOVE your new header photo! That is beautiful! Hope you're having a GREAT Monday!

Bev said...

The Boston Lady said...

Pinterest is wonderful, but I have to stay off unless I want to spend the whole day sitting here. LOL. I haven't visited it in awhile, now you have given me the bug.... Happy Week, Sandie. Ann

I love Pinterest. Those mushrooms look so good. We always get the crab stuffed mushrooms when we go to Red Lobster, those are delicious

Ginny said...

Adorable mailbox, and now I'm thinking why have you not shown us yours?

I agree with Annette and I loved her on MMClub in my olden days. My sis, Renae and I are sitting here, together at each of our computers, enjoying a blogging day - a fun blogging day. See you soon, Mary

Happy Monday. Have a great week.

Theresa said...

Love that quote! Thanks for sharing it and stopping by my blog today :)

Dee said...

I am having a good time catching up on your posts...I am going to try and discipline myself to blogging each day so I do not get behind reading blogs. You mentioned underlineingg on your post...it can not be seen by others. I have a blogger friend this is happening to...and I can not see it on her blog either. She says if you click on it it has advertising on it. Not sure what is happening.

Blondee said...

I love stuffed mushrooms, of course I love them unstuffed as well. lol

Have a beautiful week!

Michaele said...

I think I could eat anything at all inside a mushroom and like it, but sausage sounds terrific. Great recipe. Now I am hungry again.

I love stuffed mushrooms!! This recipe sounds yummy!! Thank you so much for sharing it, Sandie... along with the fun! blessings ~ tanna

My Journey With Candida said...

Boy, that barn sure is hidden. Maybe once all the leaves die off it will be more visible.

Those mushrooms look really good.

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I don't see anything underlined, so it must have come off.

I'm worried...Blogger is saying the old dashboard will be disappearing soon. I use the new one for writing posts, but I revert to the old one for the list of blogs I read because I can see the screen better. Are they really going to take it away?

The mushrooms sound good.

Mevely317 said...

I love, love stuffed 'shrooms ... but haven't had them in years -- only on account of (and this will sound soooo lame), the only recipe I had called for crab meat and I've developed a shell-fish allergy a few years ago.

Annette's quote is so uplifting, isn't it? I've always admired her smile and her spirit.

Debbie said...

i am "slightly" hooked on pinterest, i must limit my time, with a timer!! no lie!!

the mushrooms look good, i love stuffed mushrooms!!

i have ms too and i also think like is wonderful!!

Shug said...

yum...great recipe!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

jack69 said...

Love the entry, dialog and pictures, BUT the quote by Annette says it all!
Annette was a bright light on a good program, we watched her with our boys.

Love from here lady. Hope your week is great!!!!

mare ball said...

Mushrooms looks awesome. Love the badge. I so admire people who have difficulties and are still positive. Joy is a choice, I've heard. :-)

Angela said...

I love mushrooms! I'm the only one in the house that does though but I buy them for me and I cook them for me anyway! lol

Hugs,
Angela

Marsha @Spots and Wrinkles said...

What a good reminder - in fact, sometimes the quest for "perfect" prevents us from enjoying the "wonderful."

blessings to you - Marsha
