Mushroom Roast a Veggie Dish to Impress

OK so the story about Nutmeg is her activity level has been cut to zero by knee surgery.  The surgery was supposed to be minor but….not so much so she is house bound on crutches for 4 weeks.  The great news is there is lots of time for the blog and for trying new recipes.

Market Mushrooms #France #markets @GingerandNutmegGinger has been avoiding his studies using Nutmeg as the excuse and has cooked and cooked:  veggie pasta sauce, arriabiata sauce, meatballs in tomato sauce, bolognese sauce.  Nutmeg could camp for months and not go hungry.

Last night was Ginger’s dad’s birthday and Ginger made a feast and served fabulous red wine.  The beef tenderloin on the barbeque was cooked to perfection, it was served with roast potatoes and the highlight a Mushroom Roast.  This was the first trial of this recipe and the result was “two thumbs up” and several second helpings. Enjoy!  We sure did.
