mushrooms...meat for vegetarians...

Just had a delish meal of stuffed mushrooms. The meal was a left over from the meal plan of when our visitors were here (they are vegetarian so I resisted the urge to just serve frittata the whole time and this was a meal we didn't get around to having).

I used big portello mushrooms and stuffed them with a mix of ricotta, parmesan, diced sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives and parsley. Actually, "stuffed" might be an exageration; I just cut the stems off, placed them top down in a tray and put a big dollop of the ricotta mix on top. Dolloped Mushrooms might be a better title. We had them with a tomato, cucumber, basil and capsicum salad dressed in a dash of hazelnut oil, balsamic and lemon juice and a good pinch of salt and pepper. We followed it up with tiny bowls of cherries (purchased for the drool worthy skinny latte cherry bomb smoothie which I made with almond milk and was divine) topped with coconut and a little chocolate pudding. 

The good meal followed a great work out and now, combined with a peaceful house, I'm feeling pretty content. I'm just cooking up some oats to have ready in the fridge for breakfast.
