Tuesday was .. how you say.. a kick ass day?
I left work on time, feeling good. On the drive home, I started to ponder dinner. I thought to myself, “Self?? What would be a better way to wrap up the day than with homemade tortellini and stuffed mushrooms?”
My plans were TOO ambitious and clearly destined to fail from the start.
I managed to get in at 5:30 after my drive home and a quick stop at the grocery store. I arrived home, and began the dough. While the dough was resting, I worked on the filling for my mushrooms and got those started.
I used some italian seasoned spicy sausage, gorgonzola, and panko bread crumbs. I combined this, and loosely stuffed the mixture into some portabello mushroom caps that I had previously cleaned the gills from.
I then set out to work on my tortellini. I should add here, that I have never actually made tortellini. I’ve always just purchased them. It turns out that it’s a pain in the ass to make them from scratch and that I suck at it.
I decided that I would not attempt to photograph my homemade tortellini because they were ugly and stupid.
So there. That was dinner. Stay tuned for homemade soup and grilled cheese tonight.
I. LOVE. FALL.
