Auggie’s Grilled Mushroom

Auggie’s Grilled Mushroom

Auggie got me hungry already, and its only 8:15 AM.  She is one that enjoys cooking maybe more than me. She has an amazing knack for presentation and her food or what I have tasted matches. She inspires me.

Warmed up some butter and garlic, painted onto mushroom, mixed up a bit of toms, mozzarella basil red onion, grilled bottom side down for about 2 mins, flipped, filled with mix and grilled about 5-6 more mins then topped with basil and balsamic redux, and then the OMG grilled garlic bread!  How have I never made garlic bread on the grill!!!    😊

This may become regular rotation dinner

Instant Pot Vegetable Chili

Instant Pot Vegetable Chili

I went out to pick what might be to be the last batch of ripe tomatoes. Last year I had 5 pounds of Green tomatoes and made green tomato salsa. This year maybe a pound left still on the vine. What’s that saying what a difference a day makes well in this case a year.  So back to Lyn, do you think we could make this? I jump on it and she helped a little but soon had disappeared to go shopping and what not. Did not bother me I in heaven in a kitchen.

Oh one thought I prefer a thicker chili so next time i might  add some flour as last stage of sauteing the onions or maybe when I add the spices not sure any thoughts?

Anyway

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
