A tub of Selecta Hazelnut Brownie ice cream would really be perfect right now.
While you’re at it, why don’t you throw in a Big Mac, some fries and some chicken nuggets too?
I’m kidding!! Who needs it when I’ve got some nice, delicious and healthy stuffed mushie right here?
It’s actually my first time cooking Portobello mushroom and I admit, I’m a little intimidated at first. But as we got acquainted, I realized I could love this guy. He’s got the texture of meat and I’m a carnivore. Hey, we could be soulmates!
…although, I don’t think I can be soulmates with something that couldn’t take a bath. True. They say you shouldn’t wash Portobello mushrooms because they absorb a lot of water. You should only wipe it with a damp cloth and its good to go.
