He's a Fungi

A couple of weeks ago I had a Pampered Chef party.... it's like a Tupperware party but with cooking toys... and with much more fun and eating involved. I have to admit I was super hesitant to host one at our house because I'm not crazy about those type of parties, but when my friend Minda (Hi, Minda!) told me there was food demos and taste testing involved, my tummy decided, YES!

Needless to say, I purchased and received so many amazing kitchen who's it's and what's it's galore (You want thingamahbobs? I got 20!) and I don't regret it one bit. Everything they have to offer is legit. And here I give you, my new AMAZING toy!
I decided to break this bad boy in with ingredients that would make it sing...Sweet sweet sounds.

Project Wifey Wife Week #21
Beef & Mushroom Sandwiches
adapted from Cooking for Two & More by Pampered Chef


1 beef strip steak (about 12 ounces or so)
2 Tbs. butter
3 cups of fresh white button mushrooms, sliced
3 Tbs. Sour Cream
2 Tbs. snipped fresh chives
Sprinkles of Garlic Salt and Pepper to taste
Potato Bread Rolls

1. Heat Skillet over medium heat until HOT. Sprinkle steak evenly with Garlic Salt and Pepper to taste. Place stead in skillet and cook to your liking, turning only once.
Remove steak and let stand on carving board for 15 minutes. This allows the juices to settle. Thinly slice on a bias.
2. In the same hot skillet, add butter and swirl to coat the pan. Add the mushrooms and saute until brown.
"Don't crowd the mushrooms or they won't brown."-Julia Child

Best advice EVER! What a difference it made. They were juicy and brown.

"Why was the mushroom invited to all the parties? Because he was a Fun guy (Fungi)!- Ian Bo Be-an

Best joke EVER.

3. Toast bread on a buttered pan, mix sour cream and chives, and schmear as needed.
DE...wait for it...VOUR! This sandwich was so juicy and savory, Hubby and I were in food bliss!! I LOVE this sandwich!

  • Have you ever hosted a sales party at your house?
  • Any corny jokes? I love em!


  1. ohhh girl you know just what im craving right now. i need that sandwich in front of me.

  2. Looks delicious.

    And I have never hosted such a party. I don't think I will ever do it, cause I have this particular luck, that when I am cooking for myself, food is good, but when I cook for someone else... Something will always go wrong! :)

    too afraid unfortunately!

  3. I've never had one at my place, but I went to yours! Which was actually really fun and the food was good. If only I wasn't on the whole "mostly off sugar" kick at the time and could have enjoyed more lava cake. One of the biggest regrets of my life ;)

  4. Joanna, this looks amazing. I wish I could taste it. Yum!!

    I have never hosted any kind of party like that because I always feel like, "who would come?" But then I always get jealous of the great deals and freebies that the hosts get. Maybe one day.

    OK, here it goes...
    If you are an American when you go into the bathroom and and American when you come out of the bathroom, what are you when you are in the bathroom?


    Sorry, but you requested it:)


  5. I love you so much for your food-isms, Joanna. SO MUCH. I love steakkkk ahhh and fungi. That joke was perfect haha and kudos on getting that Little Mermaid quote in there ;D

  6. Omgshhhh I am sooo making this girl!! Looks sooo delicious. You got me at the 'shrooms haha. I love mushrooms!!

  7. Oh, and love the corniness! the more corn the better hehe. Errr I can't think of corny jokes for some reason! But I think I'm a corny person in general :P


I want to know what you think...no really I do! Leave a comment, question, or just a hello. It'll make me SMILE!
