Last night I made roasted mushrooms for the first time. Yum! I wish I had thought to take a picture. I found the recipe on a package of Bella mushrooms. The recipe sounded good so we decided to try it. I couldn't find the fresh herbs needed, so I used dried. Because I changed the recipe (therefore not violating copyright), I'm going to post it here for anyone else who wants to try them.

Roasted Mushrooms

8 oz package of bella mushrooms, mushrooms cut in half
2 Tbls olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp dried rosemary

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
Mix all ingredients.
Spread on a baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes, stirring once after 7.5 minutes.
Enjoy!

I haven't been doing so good on menu planning either. Thanks for the reminder! Menu planning is a must for a large family and I need to get organized, but I have been trying to decide if it's something I want to do on my blog.... so much to do so little time:) Yours looks yummy and the avocado and tomato sandwiches sound so good. We haven't been able to get any good avocados for a while:(
