ever read or see that movie, eat pray love? i will be honest, i never got through the whole book, but i did watch the movie. there was a part in the movie where she is in italy enjoying her me time. sitting on the floor reading the paper, eating a simple meal of hard boiled eggs, asparagus, and prosciutto with a touch of olive oil drizzled over the plate. this meal seemed divine to me, and since i am feeding just one tonight, me, i decided to make a meal for me full of all those yummy foods i adore.

so what was my “me” plate of food…roasted beets, stuffed mushrooms, and of course in honor of eat pray love, hard boiled eggs and asparagus. trust me, if i had prosciutto it would be on that plate in no time.
this is one of my favorite recipes, not to mention so easy. i love stuffed mushrooms. well, i love mushrooms in general, but stuffed with pesto, yum. every summer i have a garden and at the end of my herb season i pick everything and freeze it. the basil i split in half, what do i do with the other half, i make tons of pesto. i put family size portion is sandwich bags that lasts me through out the whole winter in the freezer. i use it in soups, i use it with mushrooms and of course with pasta.

stuffed pesto mushrooms:     (this recipe makes up to 6 mushrooms)

  1. in a bowl combine about breadcrumbs and pesto, you can mix with a spoon but i prefer my hands.
  2. stuff mushrooms and cook for 15 minutes uncovered in oven at 350.
  3. let it cool for about 2-3 minutes and serve.

so what’s your “me” food? i’m headed to the couch right now with my plate full of goodness and going to enjoy some dvr. have a great evening and enjoy!
