Tasty Tuesday – Stuffed Portobellos

We all get into a rut from time to time with our entree choices and I especially find myself preparing the same thing over and over, so I was excited when a coworker of mine told me about her Pinterest board filled with tried and true vegetarian recipes.

One recipe that immediately caught my eye was Stuffed Portobellos. I read over the recipe and my mouth literally watered. Portobello caps, seasoned with fresh herbs and topped with an egg – it sounded easy enough to try and I’m glad I did. Great idea for brunch too!

Accept Me For Me

The following is a poem I wrote as a senior in high school. I can remember dealing with many insecurities and issues about my own self and how others viewed me. People were quick to point out what I lacked…all of my “if only you were…” I finally came to the realization that I had to accept everything about myself; my hair, my lips, my nose shape, my skin tone, my height, my body size. This poem was the result of that moment of self-acceptance. 

I may not have

The long, light-brown hair

You so often fantasize,

And I may not have

A slender nose

Or sultry hazel eyes.

 

But I do have

Talents of sorts

And many abilities,

So I ask that you

Look beyond my outward appearance

And accept me for me

 

I may not be

The tall mystery

That attracts all of your affection,

And I may not have

The shapes and curves

And an unblemished, fair complexion.

 

But I do have

An open heart

And an unblemished inward beauty,

So once again

All I ask of you

Is to accept me for me.

 

Do I sound too bold?

Do I sound too proud?

Or maybe even too profound?

It’s just that I’ve seen

This inward part of me

And I’m pleased with what I’ve found.

 

Even though I’m not the image

You desire so much

The one of your fantasies,

It’s just that I’m striving

To be the very best

So just accept me for me.
