Following on the heels of a flubber-inducing two week holiday (read my going Vegan for a day on cruise), it was time to detox from all the great grub. Mushrooms convinced me I needed to cook them pronto; they were growing frantically. What, YOU don’t grow your own mushrooms?

My Monday breakfast was leftover Fresh Herb and Mushroom Risotto. And if I hadn’t pigged out this weekend (Temecula… upcoming post), I would have topped this with a poached egg.

Grilled Mushroom and Ham Crostini

If I may give some life advice… whenever you find yourself in need of a mood lift, throw a potluck dinner party. People like to contribute, they really do.
