Rain ~ Corn Maze 4 Old People ~ Roasted Mushrooms Brown Butter Sauce ~ Russian's Fault ~ Monday NFL Score ~ Sangria


Good 37º raining (yes, raining) morning! No snow, but it's a possibility. Looks like Christmas Eve we'll get some...

For now the summit is only wet with rain:

Yesterday I had to get some errands run.... so Dude and I took a drive into Grants Pass. He always gets so so excited to ride in the truck!


*****************************************
Now here's a great and easy side dish to go with your steak...
Roasted Mushrooms in Browned Butter Garlic and Thyme Sauce:

1 pound mushrooms, cleaned (whip them off with a towel, do not wash with water)
1 T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup butter
2 cloves garlic, grated or chopped
1 t. thyme, chopped
1 T lemon juice
Toss the mushrooms in the oil, salt, and pepper. Place on a baking sheet in a single layer and roast in preheated 400º oven until they start to caramelize. About 20 minutes, mixing half way through.
Heat butter over medium heat until it starts to turn a nice light brown color. Remove from heat and mix in the garlic, thyme, and lemon juice.
Toss the roasted mushrooms in the browned butter mixture and season with salt and pepper.
