Pan Roasted Greens & Shooms...and other eats

How was everyone's weekend? Fast? Not long enough? You know, how they usually feel:)

Before I dive into this post too much, all my LOCAL readers need to enter my cupcake giveaway! Click on this post to enter, you have until Wednesday.

So, last week I traveled and visited some friends, but so far I've only shown you the bakery pics. My good friend and I also visited a prime lunch and dinner spot, Soho. When I go here, I pick between sushi, a panini or a tapa. Since we were there for lunch, I went sandwich style.

They have the best paninis - my fave is the turkey, ham, provolone, bacon, tomato with their sassy soho sauce, which I believe is a combo of grainy mustard, spices and a little mayo? I'd dip my fingers in it for an appetizer if they let me.

We also visited the Kitchen Essentials store. I could probably spent hours in here, and if money grew on trees, I'd also give them a LOT of business, but instead I browsed.

Look at how they decorate their exposed brick! Many, many aprons...love it! I may just start collecting aprons, along with my cookbooks. Just an idea.


After awhile, life was calling and it was time to go home - but I had a great time!

My mom had given us fresh green beans out of her garden when I was there, so those made the menu two nights in a row over the weekend. I also had some mushrooms to use up, so it became pan roasted greens and shrooms!

Pan Roasted Green & Shrooms
3-4 cups fresh greens beans
1-2 cups button mushrooms
olive oil
garlic salt
pepper

On an indoor grill pan (or outdoor grill rack), turn on to medium high heat. Toss green beans, mushrooms, a drizzle of olive oil and seasonings in a bowl. Place in hot pan. With tongs flip every so often, until green beans have grill marks and mushrooms are starting to brown.



This is a great side dish and very simple!

Everyone enjoy their Monday - and my local readers and friends in Eastern Iowa don't forget about my cupcake giveaway!
