Here's the thing, you can't really eat too much during the day of track practice, or its very likely you'll spew all over your fellow teammates while circling the track in 90+ degree heat. So by the time I finally get home, I have to have something somewhat healthy prepared to eat or I'll just start tearing through everything in the house. Similar to getting home from work at 5:30 and realizing you didn't think about dinner earlier. Then you just start eating.... everything. Well, that's what I would do anyway.
So last week I finally tried Grilled Portabella Mushroom burgers. Others had raved about these and I thought I'd give it a try, since they seem easy enough to get together when you're *on the run*
Grilled Portabella Mushroom Burgers
Portabella Mushrooms (get em big, because they shrink)
Marinade - 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup red wine vinegar, couple tablespoons soy sauce (not pictured), 1 tbl sugar or honey, pressed garlic (if you want... I always want)
Toppings - feta cheese, roasted red peppers, fresh tomato, basil
Quick Aioli - jarred pesto and mayo
Mix the marinade ingredients together (olive oil, red wine, soy sauce, garlic, sugar/honey)
And then do you want to see possibly the worst mess you could make when you've got kids hanging on your ankles screaming and you're trying to get out the door? This. Half a cup of olive oil all over the floor.
I salvaged what was left and threw it on top of the mushrooms. Then I threw them in the fridge.
Mixed this 1 tbl pesto and 1 tbl mayo together for later and threw that in the fridge too. And ran out the door.
