Stuffed Mushrooms

This post is going to be short and sweet and unfortunately without a picture. I made these stuffed mushrooms for Thanksgiving and didn't get an opportunity to take a picture before sending all of the leftovers home with Uncle Dan. I am not a mushroom fan so I can't tell you if they were good or not. Uncle Dan thought they were awesome and Aunt Robin who normally wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole actually ate one and said they were pretty good. They made a great appetizer for the holiday and would be great at any party or event you might be attending or even throwing!

2 doz. mushrooms
1 lb. ground sausage, browned and drained

1/2 C. Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 C. shredded mozzarella cheese

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2.) In a skillet over medium heat brown sausage and diced onion.
3.) To sausage mixture add bread crumbs, salt, and pepper.
4.) Remove from heat and add cream cheese and Parmesan cheese until evenly mixed.
5.) Scoop about 1 tbsp. of sausage mixture to each mushroom that has been cleaned with a damp towel. Sprinkle top of each mushroom with mozzarella cheese. Repeat until all mushrooms are filled.

New Bedding

Note to self, do not share with anyone your bedding selection that has been chosen for your baby to be's nursery until bedding has actually been purchased or has been received.

Remember the bedding I showed you a week or so ago? Yeah, well, it was a big flop, damn e-bayers, needless to say it's going bye-bye so something else had to be picked. Once again my MIL stepped up to the plate and agreed to split the cost of bedding with us so that we could have something nice. She ordered it today and it should be here within the next two to four weeks. Does anyone else out there love their MIL's? I have always been curious because it seems like most could live without them.

Anyway, here is the new bedding. It's not in hand yet so don't be surprised if some major event means we have to pick something else but I am confident with this one so please keep your fingers crossed!

Daniel wouldn't allow all girly colors in the nursery so I couldn't paint all of the walls pink. We also both wanted a farm theme. I think this bedding was a nice compromise don't you?
