Good Friends Good Food - Rutabaga Puff

 This week in GFGF group, Ulrike chose rutabaga for us to cook.  Growing up in the south, we enjoyed rutabaga cooked many ways.   It is a very homely looking vegetable, but so tasty! This was supposed to be pretty when it finished cooking.  It wasn’t.  But it was so delicious and that is what counts right?   Looking forward to the leftovers as well!  It was a great side to our lemon pepper pork chop and asparagus. Recipe Peel rutabaga and cut into one inch cubes.  Cook in instant pot for six minutes.  (Of course you could also boil in water if you are not an instant pot person.)  mash with three tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, salt, pepper, and 1 tsp. Nutmeg.  Top with bread crumbs and 2T melted butter.  Bake at 350 for thirty minutes. The other group members are:   Kayte   Margaret Https://   Nancy   Ellen Https://  Ulrike http://www.bigguytiny

Good Friends, Good Food - Mushrooms

This week in our good friends good food group we are focused on mushrooms.   It worked out great that in my vegetable co-op came some portobello mushroom caps.   I have never tried those before!  My husband loves mushrooms but I can only take them in small doses and these are huge.  But they turned out really good and pretty!  Chandler loved them as I knew he would.  Sometimes it pays to cook what pleases others!  Ever since the pandemic started a year ago I think I have been spoiling him because we are living in challenging times.  This would be delicious to serve your honey bear for Valentines!
