YUMMY MUSHROOMS & SHADE SCREENS

I made Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms for our dinner last night.  They were pretty darned good.  The recipe comes from Gourmet but I found it at good old Smitten Kitchen's website.  You can find a link to Deb's webpage on the right side of my page and you'll find lots of great recipes there.

The BRD was here yesterday to hang two sun blinds on our patio for us.  We drafted her because she has similar blinds on her own patio that she hung herself.  She did a great job and the blinds should help keep the heat down in the house as the living room windows face southwest.  Hopefully it will help keep the electric bill down some, too.




Trust me, these 100 degree days can heat up the house, even with air conditioning.

And it's only May!

  1. Well thank goodness we have just eaten, or I would have been drooling uncontrollably over the thought of your garlic buttered roasted mushrooms. As it is I have the drool under control.

    Sorry to hear about your terribly hot weather. Here in northern France, we have the heating back on.

    1. If you like mushrooms and garlic butter (as do I) you'd love that recipe, Tom.

      And we face another 4-5 months of this type of weather. But, then, having just moved back here . . we asked for it!

  2. Too hot for me, even with blinds. Need me some colder weather, but not the chilling rain we have today in Portland.

  6. "When in doubt buy a fan" --- that's my motto.

    1. And a good motto it is, Cupcake, but we have fans all over the house and it's still hot.
