Hi! Hey! Hello! How’s your week, so far? …couple more days, boo-boo. Power through it! Mine has been filled with bathing suit shopping (ugh. I know.) and Samoa Peanut Butter Bars. I love them things! For the sake of balance, I also made a batch of my so dang good Spinach Lentil Fritters.
But. About those bathing suits… Seriously? Bathing suits after the Holidays?!? Good God, welp! My little family decided to whisk me away next week to Punta Cana for my birthday, even though the only request I had for the big day was not to be bothered with washing the dishes. They consider that to be the worst.chore.ev-er., so Punta Cana it is!
Thank goodness for Kaftans and Tunics… That is all.
So do you want to, like, talk about mushrooms? ‘Cause these are goooood. Like, amazing.
Crab is usually not my go-to, but I’m completely crazy over Crab Stuffed Mushrooms, especially this recipe. I think my mind was especially blown with this whole garlic butter sauce that I poured over them.
Sidenote: Do you see a heart in the photo with the garlic sauce? Isn’t that cool? I think that’s a sign. It’s telling us to serve the ‘shrooms to our Valentine!
P.S. Don’t wait that long to try ’em!
The good news? They’re under 60 calories per piece! And they’re suuuuper simple to make. The only annoying part is cleaning out 25 baby bella mushrooms… make sure to crank up some Adele to get you through it.
