To Good Not To Share and It's Ok Thursday

Happy Thursday Everyone!  
The week is slowly but surely coming to an end.  And I have a delicious recipe to share with you all before I jump into It's Ok Thursday!  This recipe was not originally on my pin board, but after making it Tuesday night I just knew this recipe was going to be a keeper!  I mean my dad gave it 2 thumbs up (he has been loving all the new recipes we have been having)!

It is a spin off of a good old Beef Stroganoff.  But meaty Portabello mushrooms stand in for the beef.  There is an interesting twist to this recipe that makes the sauce creamy!  You ready for it?  Tofu!  But you know what, the tofu works especially when blended with beef broth, spices and tomato paste.  Throw the perfectly caramelized onions and mushrooms in the mix and you have a perfectly satisfying meatless dinner!
This recipe comes to you from Clean Eating Magazine (I have been finding some of the best recipes on their site).  They were the master minds behind the Spanikopita casserole (which I originally saw here)!
So head on over and check out the recipe, I promise you will not be disappointed! Click Here!

Alright now onto It's Ok Thursday!

Its Ok Thursdays

It's Ok that...
...I am counting down the days till Valentines day, because that means I get to see Mark (and celebrate 2 years)!

...I  have been looking forward to Friday all week.  Not just because it is the weekend but because of the chance to entertain and be with friends!

...I am looking forward to a relaxing lazy Saturday morning.  Pancakes anyone?

...after seeing the current temp in Minnesota I googled warmer places to live!  I don't get along with negative temps!

Happy Thursday Everyone!  Whats ok with you today?

  12. yum, I bookmarked the portabllo mushroom recipe. I can't believe they used tofu for the sauce. Tofu is so versatile, I have yet to bake with it and see does it really taste as amazing as they say. i'm in NYC and it's in the 30s today, but I spoke to my bff in Minnesota and she was complaining how it is going down to -32. I know! :-(

  13. It's ALWAYS okay to look forward to Friday! I do it even if I have to work over the weekend! Does that -6 make you miss the 20s and snow here in Indy? I'd take that beach ANY day!

    and yum, those pancakes look delish :)
