Good morning everyone! Now don’t let that explanation point scare you into thinking Im a morning person…believe me its just the exact opposite. I said may expletives when my alarm went off this morning. I can’t believe how fast the weekend went. Although it was a productive weekend, it just went too fast. On a plus side this week is a short week, work wise for me…this upcoming weekend is my friends wedding, class reunion and a family cookout to celebrate my cousin being home from AK. So needless to say I’ve got a lot of stuff to do in the up coming weekend.

This past weekend, however I delivered a wedding cake up to the white mountains with Jodi (pictures to come soon). On Sunday I bought some mushrooms and I wanted to do something different. I decided to make some stuffed mushrooms. Im not a fan of mushrooms…but this recipe got two thumbs up from Dan…
