a lovely weekend....and pesto stuffed portobello's

{pesto stuffed...parmesan topped...portobellos} ~ they were too good...and we were in too good of company for me to take my own pic.....this will suffice.

The weekend flew by...all of a sudden it's monday, and I'm excitedly awaiting next weekend because we are going wine tasting in Paso for a little bachelor/ette celebration (santa cruz didn't work out....shucks....because the dream inn looked fab).
with a good friend in town, we celebrated her birthday friday at giuseppe's (a little too hard one might say)...had a recovery day saturday (low key...with my honey, couch, and Californication dvds)....and threw a little bbq with more friends sunday after another lovely afternoon at dockside with beer and fish tacos. This is where the pesto stuffed portobellos come into play.
so so easy....and yes, i am still attempting to put pesto on just about everything!
we got large portobellos and pulled out the little stems...coated them with olive oil, salt and pepper and threw them face down on the grill for about 5 mins....turn over and fill inside with homemade pesto, top with parmesan and let cook for about another 5 or so mins. (voila!)....we also like to slice up squash, zucchini and asparagus, tossed with olive oil salt and pepper and charred on the grill....what a lovely bbq, with lovely friends. we then preceded to sneak into the madonna inn swimming pool (with such delightful weather, one must take full advantage of a warm night) harm in feeling like i'm 16 again right? and so the week continues : ) Happy Monday loves!!!
:: peace and love ::
