Saturday Things

Good morning!  Is your weekend going well?  Mine is going to be a lazy one.

Today the post is sharing a site that provides many, many recipes, meal planning and shopping lists for healthy, low calories dishes.  The site focuses on Weight Watcher point recipes.  One can pick recipes based on the number of points, ingredient or type of meal.  This site is a real find.

I have chosen to share a Stuffed Mushroom Casserole recipe because I love mushrooms.  Take a look.


16oz mushrooms, sliced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 medium onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 egg whites
1 tbsp light butter
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a 2qt casserole dish with an olive oil mister or non-fat cooking spray.
In a medium, nonstick skillet melt butter over medium high heat. Add in onions and celery, and cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
Add in mushrooms, garlic, thyme, sage and salt and pepper, and cook until mushrooms are soft, about 5-7 minutes.
Transfer mushroom mixture to a large bowl, and stir in all remaining ingredients, except for the shredded mozzarella.
Pour into prepared casserole dish and top evenly with the shredded mozzarella.
Place into oven and bake until cheese becomes golden and bubbly, about 10-15 minutes.

Now - a little bit of show and tell.

This the priming stage of a redo of a two drawer chest.  The finish was ruined on the piece so we chose to paint.
The finished piece.  It was base-painted with a very pale yellow and then glazed with a brown mix.  The final finish has been lacquered.
This is a closeup of the top of the chest to give a better perspective of the glazing.

Enjoy your weekend.  Meanwhile .... keep it simple and make it real.
