Sami's Gymnastic Meet Smilebox ~ Brian,Dash,Tucker ~ French Onion Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Schwans Single Bacon Egg Pizza ~ Blueberry Pancake Day

Good 48º foggy morning. It started out at 45º so we'll see what we get later. No rain in the forecast for a few days until Tuesday.

Slow start today. I was gone all day yesterday at my granddaughter Sami's gymnastic meet, so the "blog" didn't get done. Started working on it this morning and taking my time!! I also had lots of pictures (60+) to go through. As usual, Sami was great! She took 1st in the vault, 3rd in the bars, 4th in the beam, and 1st in the floor exercise. She got 1st All Around!!! The girls are divided into levels per age. Sami is in level 4. Sami's other grandmother, Jean and I sat together and each of us held Dash for awhile. Sweet puppy. Here is the smilebox of photos of Sami ...

Brian, Dash, and Tucker....

Here are some Stuffed Mushrooms... easy to make and good as French Onion Soup!

These French Onion Stuffed Mushrooms are baked to an absolutely perfect combo of crunchy inside and cheesy, velvety outside.
  • 1 pound large fresh mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 packet onion soup mix
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 slices Swiss cheese, each slice cut into 4 squares
  1. Preheat oven to 375º. Gently clean mushrooms by wiping them with damp paper towels. Remove stems from 12 mushrooms; set aside caps. Finely chop mushroom stems and remaining whole mushrooms.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter; cook onion 3 minutes, or just until soft. Stir in chopped mushrooms, onion soup mix, and water and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat and add bread crumbs and black pepper; mix well.
  3. Using a teaspoon, stuff mushroom caps with stuffing mixture. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake 12 minutes. Remove from oven, top each with a piece of cheese, and return to oven 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and mushrooms are heated through. Serve immediately.
