This was written in May of 2016, and I admit it's about writing--it's also about Mother's Day. And loving things. I was reminded of it when the same group entertained our Mother-Daughter gathering this year, and it was fun for me to revisit it. I hope you like it, too.
Wednesday night at church, we had the annual Mother-Daughter gathering that celebrates Mother's Day. It was a pitch-in--with Methodists, there is always food. It's a small church in a small community and there weren't that many of us; there were nearly as many in the singing group that entertained us as there were in the crowd. My daughter was there, and it was a good time.
Most of the women who sang to us, sitting in their sparkly vests and their black bowler hats, were my age (65) and older. Their leader taught music at our elementary school when my kids went there in the late 70s and early 80s. Others were retired teachers, nurses, farmers, and everything else on the employment spectrum, including stay-at-home moms. A couple of them had canes; one was unable to stand when the others did.

What makes this portobello mushroom burger better than all the rest is that it's layered with flavor. While portobellos have a great earthy, meaty flavor all their own, they do need a little something to give them spunk. Filling their caps with smoked Gouda quickly solves that problem. It melts while the mushroom caps cook and infuses its smoky flavor into the vegetable.
The gooey smoked Gouda, a slew of tangy Peppadew peppers, and a handful of peppery arugula produce a meatless burger that's so far from ordinary, it's one that both vegetarians and carnivores can 100% get behind.
Peru, IN – A request for a welfare check on Children in the 40 block of Cory Avenue resulted in the arrest of Amber Cart, 33 of Peru on neglect and drug charges Tuesday evening, May 8, 2018
