Sometimes I have inspiration laying around on one of my blog notebooks for a very long period of time and just don’t have the actual inspiration to test the recipe and post about it. Oh, the irony of food blogging! I finally got quick the burst of inspiration just a few days ago when my honey was on her way home. I decided to write a nice grocery list and go on that trip to produce heaven for all my blogspiration that I’ve had lingering on notebooks, secret pin boards, little pieces of paper and the backs of receipts. Nonsense all together that makes these dishes come alive in true taste and fashion!
I am leaving again soon to the Bahamas with Carol. I get really nervous when I start to think about it. I have been informed of certain desires the clients have for this trip so it is going to be a ton of work, which in turn is good but wears me out. At the end of the day, I am in it to exert the skills and talents I have to show for myself and my field and get the experience in performance art interpreting I so dearly long for.
The nerves really kick in on the way to Port Canaveral specially if I am driving. I guess it’s because I know that anything goes when you leave port. Anything at all can happen. I always pray that God protects me as I trust He will because He always is faithful to do so. I guess I am more nervous about my performance as an interpreter than anything. More nervous than the thought of sinking in the middle of the ocean like Titanic or Costa Concordia. Once it all begins, I know the thought will leave me and God will empower me with the ability to get through.
Now for these mushrooms, I have surely outdone myself. The soft creamy flavors of blue cheese with the warm and crunchy goodness of bacon all stuffed into a mushroom cap. When you bake these puppies, they will just be glistening in all their glory! I don’t think any will be left over for when the party arrives. Make sure to buy two of everything on your shopping list for tonight because you’ll sure be needing it.
P.S. Forgive the bad food photography of my Stuffed Mushrooms. I am trying to improve upon that skill in my life and this was practice that didn’t exactly go as planned.
