Day 341: Shrooms

I feel so rebellious with that title!

Awesome shroom Sweet P found back in New England
Have I ever mentioned that I love mushrooms?  Cooked, mainly.  Raw mushrooms are not the best.  But sauteed, stewed, baked, or grilled?  Oh, mama.

I took a platter of stuffed mushrooms to the New Year's party last weekend, and I'll be honest, all the compliments I received on them were a huge Joyful Moment.  I just wish I would have remembered to put a bit of thyme in them.  They were still delicious, but I think the thyme would have been a welcome addition.  I'll just have to make some more...

Not the best focus, but you can still tell it was a pretty funky little guy
Tonight we did not have stuffed mushrooms.  We had mushroom and barley stew.  I made up the recipe--and that was my Joyful Moment.  I like making up recipes.  It is not my favorite soup ever, but it was good.  And I felt good about serving it because it had a variety of ingredients in it specially formulated to (hopefully) help us all get over this nasty cold that keeps lingering on and on and on and on and on.

Here's to hoping!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that restore your good health!

Sounds delish - is it on the family recipe blog? Your big sis told me she submits recipes on line; do you do the same? Such talented posterity have I!

Lot of joy today for - connecting with a friend from New York, spending time with your little sis, finding my lost cell phone the easy way, and hanging the first framed pictures on our walls. That act brought a very overdue and heartwarming JOY.
