I am so glad the weekend is finally here.  This was one of the slowest weeks ever!  Tomorrow is actually the state competition for my son’s Lego Robotics team.  So we will spend the day keeping 7 4th graders on track, and competing.  The boys are excited and as ready as they are going to get.  Only the top two teams move on, and given this is their first year, they know this is the last meeting of the season. Hopefully that means they won’t be nearly as nervous and will be more relaxed than the competition in November.

Stuffed Mushrooms

Did everyone have a good Christmas?  We did.  It was just the 3 of us, so it was a little quiet, which was kind of nice.  Santa came and spoiled our 7 year old, we had a great ham dinner, and it even snowed over night so we could have a White Christmas.  Couldn’t as for a much better day.  Oh, plus I got a blender!!  Bring on the smoothies.

Now that Christmas is over, it is time to get ready for New Years.  What do you guys do for New Years?  We often times go out for dinner on New Years Eve, and then watch football all day on the 1st.  The 1st is also my birthday, so the boys are forced to take a break for cake and presents.  This year my parents will be here, and I think we are going to have snacks and appetizers for grazing through the day.  So that is what I am sharing this week.

Today is stuffed mushrooms, one of my favorites.  I have been making this version for years.  My husband doesn’t like mushrooms, so I don’t get them often, but when I do I eat more than my fair share.  I fill them with a sausage mixture, but you could change that to crab pretty easily if you wanted to get fancy :)  These are super easy to throw together.  You can make them a few hours ahead of time, and then just heat them up for a party.  Plus they reheat fairly well too.
