Friday Friend Recipe #60 -- Mushrooms Monterey

Friday Friend Recipe #60: Mushrooms Monterey 

Making my way thru my Friday Friend Cookbook, one recipe at a time.
What is the Friday Friend cookbook: I have about 50 of my closest friends and family on an e-mail forum which I called the Friday Friends (from all over the county). At first, most of them didn't know each other, (they knew me) but over the past 15 years, we've answered and shared silly--and serious---questions, exchanged Secret Santa Christmas gifts, had a dieting contest in which we paid a $1 a week and that money went to a scholarship fund for a Friday Friends son's memorial scholarship, and we went on a great vacation for my 52 birthday.

AND, we contributed recipes for a cookbook.

I was looking at the cookbook the other night and I said, "I should make every recipe in here for my blog."
The Handyman--who knows me better than I know myself (this happened to be a question on the Friday Friend forum once---does your spouse/partner know you better than you know yourself?)--said, "you'll never, EVER do that."

WELL---maybe I'll show him! Maybe I will.

Which brings me to this... recipe #60

Mushrooms Monterey

 This is a great little side dish, if you are a mushroom lover.
It was cheesy too!
I made it with chicken, but I think it would go great with some Tri-tip beef!
Or a grilled steak.

Mushrooms Monterey
Barbara Brown
Buckeye, AZ

1 lb sliced mushrooms
1 T butter
1/2 cup sour cream
1 T flour
1/4 t salt
pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped parsley

Saute` mushrooms in butter till lightly brown.
Blend sour cream, flour and salt. Stir into mushroom mixture. 
Heat until bubbly. 
Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley and cook another 10 minutes.
This can also be turned into a baking dish and baked at 425 for 10-15 minutes.

And here, once again, is our good friend and editor/typist of the Friday Friend Cookbook, Barbara Brown!
Back with her 13th showing in the blog!
(see all her recipes here .  Just click.  Go ahead.  Do it.  I'll wait.)

I just know that I'm going to run out of funny stories/fun facts about her before this cookbook is finished.

Today I am just thinking to myself...
is Barb really that short?

seen here with the Handyman and her husband Doug.


And then with her daughter, Kim.

 I am sure Kim must have had some kind of heel on.  Or the angle is funny.  I don't think there is 'that much' height difference between mother and daughter.
I could be wrong tho.
