Heirloom Tomato Salad & Cheesy-Stuffed Mushrooms

Okay, so the tomato salad isn't really a recipe, but it was so dang pretty,  I couldn't walk away without taking a picture.

We bought the tomatoes at the farmer's market and I made the salad to take to my sister's last night for dinner.  They got just a sprinkling of Parmesan, using my microplane grater, and some fresh basil leaves.  We used a balsamic vinaigrette of my sister's, that's delicious, to dress them.

Here they are in all their glory:

The mushrooms aren't really a recipe either, considering they're just two ingredients, including the mushrooms.
These will be dubbed "Terry's Mushrooms" at my house from now on.
Terry at These Peas Taste Funny posted them the other day, so I made them to take to my sister's, along with the tomato salad.

I just realized, while working on this post, that I used the wrong cheese.
She clearly stated Boursin and even had a picture included.
I apparently can't follow directions because I used Rondele.  
Ah well, the platter got cleaned nonetheless.

Click here for her recipe and instructions.
She just did a makeover on her blog, so make sure you check out the new little pea people on her header and sidebar.

Here's "Terry's Mushrooms", hot out of the oven:

Thanks for the quick app idea Terry!  :o)

  4. That is clearly the prettiest salad I have ever seen. I love tomatoes and heirlooms? Oh yeah!! As for the mushrooms, we should now make this a quest to try the recipe with as many different kinds of cheese as possible. We know two that are good already. :)
