|Oh no! There is a mushroom on ManO's ham side of the pizza. Much bemoaning occurred!|
I invited my friend Cathy over to celebrate her birthday and be a part of The Great Dining Room experiment. You know you have a good friend when you make her sit in the middle of a room torn apart. Nope, you can't see the chaos. I'm smart that way. But we haven't used the room in ten years and something had to be done. That's what this experiment got me. More on that next week.
|In ManO's childhood kitchen, the table's almost an antique.|
That's when it hit me. Steak houses, at least the good ones, serve a sauteed mushroom side dish so customers can spoon the mushrooms over the steak. Why not do the same with lasagna?
|Oh my goodness! Delish! Instructions below.|
The bottom line is we had a great lunch and I didn't have to cook ManO an entirely new dinner!
Easy Sauteed Mushrooms
1 pint washed and sliced mushrooms
1 or 2 tablespoons butter
1 or 2 tablespoons olive oil
minced garlic to taste (optional)
Melt butter with olive oil over medium heat.
Add minced garlic and stir.
Saute until cooked but NOT limp.
Serve over veggies, meat or as a side.
So, what about you? Do you have a love or hate affair with mushrooms? Is there something you've given up because no one else in the house loves a particular food or ingredient?
