Happy Wednesday All! I hope you are all having a great week. It has been a busy week at work and I am ready for the weekend in a few days. I have been starting to slowly sort and throw out/donate/recycle things that I won’t want to take if I move. Hopefully by starting early this daunting task will be easier!
I headed off to the Farmer’s Market this past weekend and hit the jackpot on berries. I found the largest blackberries I have ever seen. I just had to get raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. They were all too good to pass up. My summer fruit addiction continues 🙂 Because I hit up the market first thing in the morning each time I made a stop during my morning of running errands I grabbed a berry….or 2…or 3 to snack on! I had a bowl full of the delicious summer fruit for breakfast. They were so sweet and fresh tasting. Of course I continued to pair them with a batch of Kodiak Cakes. I use 1/2 cup of the mix and instead of measuring out the water (too lazy for that!) I usually just run the tap and estimate 1/2 cup or so. This morning I obviously added a little too much so it was really runny and made a ton of super thin pancakes. They tasted great just not as fluffy as normal.
Lunch was a peanut butter sandwich with tomatoes, a carrot and the last handful of cherries of the season. I always feel like a kid when I eat a peanut butter sandwich! I like almond butter but nothing beats a good old peanut butter sandwich sometimes. It had been ages since I had them and forgot how quick, tasty, and portable they are.
Supper was a fresh salmon fillet with two portobello mushroom caps. I seasoned them both with Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning spice. I had never had the seasoning before but was intrigued after reading it was salt free. I usually avoid those seasonings as they are loaded with sodium. I added some carrot salad on the side. This was my first time trying portobello mushrooms and I can say I was really impressed. Now I need to start searching for more ideas on how to enjoy them. I picked up some baby ones yesterday as there were no caps at the market.
Do you have any favourite ways to use portobello mushrooms?
