Anyone else ready for spring? Every time I sit down to write this post, or edit these photos, or even think about these mushrooms, I think about the grilled portobella mushrooms with spinach you all love so much (that recipe has been pinned over 110,000 times!) and then I think of grilling, and then I think of spring and summer. I’m writing this the morning after a heavy snowfall and the drive in to the kids’ school was so beautiful (scary, but beautiful) this morning. The snow was glistening and clinging to tree branches. The fields that were once covered with corn stalks are now rolling white hills. We passed a herd of more than 30 deer walking through one snow covered field. It’s beautiful, there’s no denying it. I’m smitten with every season in our new country life, but I’m starting to get to the point where I’m ready to move on to spring.

But in the meantime, I’ll take solace in quick and easy meals and try to enjoy the moment we’re in. Ben just said to me last night that it really struck him how fast our life was passing by. It’s so true. E is in Kindergarten, and Nathan is already 4. It’s insane and feels like they were just babies. So yes, let’s live in the moment and not always be thinking of what is next. I’ll keep on making my quick and easy meals that give me plenty of time to play a game with E or wrestle in the living room with N.

This stuffed portobello mushrooms recipe uses one chicken breast — you could use rotisserie if you want or if you meal prep, cook some bone-in chicken breasts (or boneless) and keep them in the fridge for salads or recipes like this.  I was actually testing another recipe that used two chicken breasts (for the life of me, I can’t remember what it is…I think I have early dementia), and my package of chicken contained three breasts. I threw the third in boiling water and poached it and threw it in the fridge. At the time, I didn’t know what I would do with it, but then I saw my portobello mushrooms and the lightbulb went on.

If you want to make this a meal, I’d suggest serving with a salad (I recommend this kale salad with apples and raisins or an asparagus ribbon salad with beets and burrata) and/or a pile of vegetables. Roasted broccoli would be amazing with this and so would these roasted green beans with Parmesan. Some crusty bread dipped in olive oil is always a good choice too if you are craving some carbs.

Enjoy!
