Are you a mushroom fan? Why wouldn't you be? These mushrooms are so filling and perfect to have as a main dish, but you could easily serve them as a side dish too. Portobello mushroom stuffed egg and spinach is a great way to get some vitamin D and protein into your diet. Especially on a day like today in Portland, when the clouds covered all the sun light.
For me if it is raining or shining, I have been staying indoors packing for our big move this summer. Going through all our things - and when I say all, I mean like every single piece of paper and every single Lego piece. We have been building a house for the last year, but it is not quite done yet. Actually won't be until the end of summer, if we are lucky. Our rent however is over, and the landlord has decided to sell the house. I feel though it is really a good time to move, the house has served us well for the last two years, after our move from Canada. It is time for our next adventure, and new places to discover. More on that in a different post.
