Portobello Mushroom Burgers & Weekly Meals (7/14-7/17)

We went to the Nature Park again today. The toddler had some more water fun.

He also rode a car all by himself for the first time!

On the way home, we stopped by the organic farm and got some more fruits and veggies as well as portobello mushrooms.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

I marinated the mushrooms for about an hour in the following:
  • olive oil
  • soy sauce
  • lemon juice
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • salt
  • lemon pepper.

Then, I grilled them for 3-5 minutes on each side (I didn't really time myself...) and when they were almost done, I added some cheese and let the cheese melt.

In the meantime, I toasted some bread and spread some avocado on it and put on some greens and heirloom tomatoes before adding the mushrooms.

Yummy... :o)

Okay, so here are the meals for this week:

Tuesday: Inspiration from the blog world: Bella’s Vegetarian Enchiladas and a salad.

Wednesday: Summer Salad with fresh corn from the organic farm.

Thursday: Grilled cheese sandwiches & a salad. I have wanted to eat one lately.... :0)

Friday: Spinach salad with avocado dressing & grilled shrimp.

Question: What meals do you have planned for this week? Please share!

Be well,


  1. YUM!! Those portobellos look AWESOME! Wonder if they would cook as well on a George Foreman. Hmmm. Love that it's on an arnold too (i think!) - i'm trying to find more uses for those little guys and i'm not a fan of them cold. Anywho - our planned dinners this week include:

    Tuesday: Supreme Calzone
    Wednesday: Blackbean chicken tacos
    Thursday:pizza pasta salad with foccacio (new!)
    Friday: Feta + Mushroom stuffed chicken

    I'm so excited to cook!!

  2. Forgot to tell you - ADORABLE toddler - he looks very confident behind the wheel, too! :)

    Yum- I love trying out all the recipes I found in the blog world! (I'm a sucker for pictures of food) This week I'm sticking to a particular diet (protein at every meal, only 1 carb at lunch, and unlimited vegetables!) So I'm trying to find some good recipes to spice up my veggies this week! Any suggestions?
