Shrooms and shopping

Stuffed mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms

I made another batch of stuffed mushrooms just for you. Help yourself. There’s plenty more you’d better snatch one quickly, they go fast. Recipe at end of post! They would make great New Year’s Eve munchies. OR. Perhaps just Monday night eats. Or Tuesday, you get the drift.

Bethany and I took a little shopping trip to the pet store to see what we could find. We bought a cat brush for Myron. That cat sheds more than I’ve ever seen a short haired cat shed. In perfect irony, not a hair is on the brush after a vigorous brushing but my shirt? Covered. I wonder how he does that??

We also purchased some kitty grass to grow for Mitchell. If he needs greens so much, so be it. I hope that the “legal” greens will be as tasty to him as the houseplants. Perhaps I’ll just place it over with the surviving plants when it has grown.

Our best purchase though was a laser pointer. We figured that Myron would be the one that loved it the most. We were wrong. Mitchell is CRAZY for it. He has exhausted himself chasing that red dot around the house. It has made him a bit bolder which is good for all of us.

Now, I have to go knit a hat for a gift. Show you tomorrow.


Stuffed Mushrooms

1 package white mushrooms

4 slices bacon, chopped

1 small onion, chopped

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/3 cup white wine or water (I’ve made it both ways, either are delish)

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Remove stems from mushrooms and finely chop, set aside. Place bacon in skillet, cooking until almost crisp. Add onions. Cook until soft. Drain grease. Add mushroom stems, cook for a minute or so.

Add bread crumbs, wine, cheese and pepper to taste.
Stuff mushroom caps with mixture.

Bake 375°F for about 20-25 minutes.

  1. Yum!

    Clearly, you got a defective cat brush. ;^)

  2. Mmmm. Mushrooms and BACON!

  3. Mmmm… sounds tasty! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. The recipe is one I will definitely try.

    I don’t have one but the best cat brush around (from what I’ve been told) is a furminator.

    Our cat loves the laser light but she also LOVES the feathers on a stick.

    The furminator is AWESOME! It works great on all my cats and the beagle too. My short hair cat sheds more than my long hair. You’d think he’d be bald by now as much as he sheds! LOL! The furminator is a little more expensive, but is worth every penny.

  7. Mmm.

    Laughing about the laser pointer – our cat used to love chasing the flashlight beam all over the place. Hours of fun!

    Well, I just bought the furminator through Amazon, have written out a grocery list to make the stuffed mushrooms, and will be yarn shopping for mittens today because of the storm coming in tomorrow! What else do I need other than chocolate? 🙂

  9. The kitties have offered you so much entertainment already. The shrooms sound heavenly.

  10. They sound MARVELOUS. And I just happen to have some local Vermont bacon in my freezer…..
