So here it goes. We are doing more meatless meals! We are seriously cutting back on meats, so that means more creativity on my part. Luckily, you guys will get the best of both worlds since we aren't cutting it out completely!
Mushrooms have a heartiness that we are still craving. So stuffing them seemed like a great way to go! This is a great way to go low carb. Or, you can be like us and serve it with a salad and a loaf of crusty peasant bread. :-D
