The Devil Made me do it! By it, I mean Cook A Mean Stew!

Portabella Mushroom Burgers

Today I got off work late and exhausted! There was no way that I was going to cook an elaborate dinner. On my way home I called my daughter to go over new dinner plans, I remembered that I had some mushroom caps in the crisper. All they needed was a quick marinade. As I was on my way home, my daughter put together the marinade for me. She came up with a concoction of balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and olive oil. She put them in a freezer bag and let them soak up the liquid.

When I finally arrived home to my children (and my oh so wonderful yoga pants) I got to work. Since she had done the hard part for me, my job was super easy.
