Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

I forgot to mention last week one of the most important parts of my family's holiday dinner table. I don't know how I forgot to mention stuffed mushrooms. Really, I don't know how I could have forgotten them. Every holiday, there they are. Only, it's not lika the fruitcake that so many families insist on having at the table but no one touches. These mushrooms are inhaled when brought to my family's gatherings.
2 flats of stufing mushrooms.
1/2 loaf of bread cubed or shredded
1 pk (10 or 12 links I can't rememeber) of Boca Veggie breakfast sausage.
1 can of Veggie broth
1 medium onion chopped.
2-4 garlic cloves minced
Preheat oven to 350F
Wash all the mushrooms removing the stems. Place the mushrooms, top down, in a backing dish. Chop all the stems.
Saute the onions, garlic, and mushrooms stems in a large pan. When they've cooked down, remove from the heat, add in the bread and 1/2 the can of broth. Mix it all up and throw on top or the mushrooms.
Typically you're supposed to fill each mushroom individually. This dish is eaten so fast, why bother. It's also why we don't have a picture. They aren't the prettiest but they taste amazing. If you have time, definitely fill them all individually.
Put the rest of the can of broth in the bottom of the pan around the mushrooms. We don't put the broth in first because the mushrooms will float making it a pain to cathch the little suckers for filling.
Cover with foil, bake for about 25 minutes, uncover and bake for 10 more just to crisp up the bread. yum yum.
The Living Room Tour
She's mostly done! I say moslty because I still ahve boxes of books, DVD's and CD's to sort through. Some will go into storage and others will go back on shelves. We really have limited space and had stacks of things here and there, we're trying avoid that now. This is my big Living room window with the proof of all the boxes and junk that needs a home. I mostly took this picture of the window because I promised Lady Bean a better view of it.
Before I get into it any further my Dad read the blog and he wanted me to be sure to tell you that the flooring took 3.5 hours. I was wrong saying it took longer than it actually did. I said it was 4.5 hours and obviously my math was wrong. My Dad is super speedy and lays an excellent floor too. Is that better?
The paint was done over the weekend and it's gorgeous. I love the color and Dad did a killer job. He did way better than I would have done. He even did 2 coats! Thank you Dad!
Why couldn't I be bothered to finish putting the living room together. I worked on the Magknits sweater a bunch and then because I know the cold weather is upon us, I finished these: Mittens for the GirlBeast made with Gummi Bears bulky handspun yarn.
