Holy moly!  I am so caught up in this weight loss challenge that I haven’t posted a recipe in about a week.  Partly because I thought I didn’t have any recipes left in the queue and partly because I was out of town in beautiful Pismo Beach for a couple of days.

These healthy living Ground Beef Stuffed Mushrooms are so impressive, you could won't even notice how healthful it is for you.But I have got to tell you all, these stuffed mushrooms can be made to fit your palate. Whether you use ground chicken, ground, beef, quinoa, or couscous this can work for just about anyone.  Try using the mini mushrooms caps and serve these as appetizers.

This is my last week of the 6 week 20 pound weight loss challenge.  I still have 4.9 pounds to go.  Wish me luck.  I definitely was sidetracked by going out of town.  However, I worked out in my hotel room each day and one day in the gym with a beautiful 30 minute walk on the beach.  Down 88 steps to the beach and then back up those same 88 stairs.

Pismo_0382-2 Pismo_0387-3 Pismo-1It was exhilarating and I wish I could do that every day.

Anyway, I have one more recipe left in the queue to share with all of you before my challenge is over.  After that I will write about my experience and share it with all of you.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

  1. Made it today, and my husband and I both loved it. He always adds hot sauce, or mustard, or something! to his dinners, but he did not add anything and loved the flavour. Cooking the caps in a pan first made sure they were done at the end of baking time. Great idea! Good directions, ‘normal’
    ingredients, great recipe. Thank you!

    • Hi Joanne. I am tickled pink that you took the time to stop by and leave me this wonderful comment. I know what you mean about the husband. Mine puts BBQ sauce on just about everything. Happy cooking to you!
