Hello Dear Reader,
Many thanks for your good wishes. I've never had a back problem before and simply put one foot on the ground and something 'popped' in a muscle and it took forty eight hours for it to 'free up' again.
Tonight, I'm on form again and here I am saving a quid by using up left overs. I had some French blue cheese, mushrooms and bread. Stuffed mushrooms! You could use any blue cheese, however, it's expensive so this might be a treat. The cheese was bought when we were on holiday and it's about to go out of date so I'm using it up.
Remove the stalks and peel the mushrooms (or don't...you are going to eat them) - mush your blue cheese in a bowl until soft and then using a teaspoon, whilst supporting the mushroom in the palm of your hand, gently press the cheese into the mushroom.
Dip in egg and then bread crumbs until they are all covered. Press the breadcrumbs on to make them stick and balance a few more on top for crispiness.
Shallow fry in very hot oil. Turn with two spoons after a few minutes.
Eat with salad. They are rich and calorie laden so don't have too many!
The cheese and the bread was used up, as was some hummus, which we've been eating with our lunch all week.
I'm an 80's kind of girl and I almost wanted some Grover Washington in the back ground with a spritzer on the side! This was a popular 80's bistro starter. If you have any left over pate, this also makes a good stuffing.
Thanks again for all the kind words,
Love Froogs xxxxxxxxxxx
