Herb and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

 

I had a revelation this week. And it was this: Moving sucks. (A lot.)

 

 

We finally have the kitchen unpacked enough to eat things besides cold leftover takeout, and although no room is “finished” we’ve managed to assemble a coffee table and hook up our tv (wahoo!) so it’s almost like we’re real people now.

 

 

And then there are these stuffed mushrooms: super simple. Super tasty. Require little to no actual counter space and very minimal dishwashing. WIN.

 

 

Also, I have unpacked these awesome rooster trivets that I found at Salvation Army a few weeks ago, which meant I could let the mushrooms cool off a bit in super-stylish fashion:

 

 

And, since I’ve assembled a kitchen workspace AND located my camera battery charger (win #2), you can expect a barrage of recipes comin’ atcha. The stuffed mushrooms are just the beginning, folks. It’s about to get CRAZY. As crazy as watching three movies in a row instead of unpacking anything just because you discover your TV now has OnDemand. Not that that happened.

      Thanks, Shannon! It’s tough to find much mushroom variation in my teeny Midwest town, but you can bet the second I see criminis I will be ALL. OVER. IT. Sometimes I can get portobellos, which are also great with this recipe. Thanks for the tip!

    do you have DiStefano buratta in your neck o’ the woods? if I ever visit I will bring you the creamiest, most sensuous it’s-so-crazy-I-can’t-even-call-it-mozzarella cheese. Just gooey enough, just this side of a triple creme and I mean runny. Only the best thing with garden tomatoes and basil. You’ll never even look at the white rubber tire mozzarella again.
