    I’m making these tonight, I bought a ton of mushrooms at a farmers market and finally have a use for them. My thoughts exactly on Spanish from high school all that time spent and GONE! Which sparked my interest to learn ASL recently, it’s such an interesting language all on it’s own. My personal lost talent is gymnastics from high school, funny how we are all so active then and adult life priorities kick in.

      In culinary school we had a deaf student who had two interpreters with her and it was fascinating to watch them translate! They let us ask questions about ASL and working as a translator in exchange for food 😉

      I did gymnastics too! It’s too bad so many of these fun and creative activities are reserved for children. I took dance in high school (it was an option to replace it with P.E. class) and even by that age I felt as though it was too late to start a hobby like that because so many dancers started as very young children.

    A girl after my own heart!! I took Spanish, Violin, Gymnastics AND Dance!! I see all these videos of girls doing Gymnastics now and my back just hurts looking at them!

    As far as learning Spanish – I took four years in High School and promptly forgot EVERYTHING. But I moved to Mexico for a year and was AMAZED at how much I picked back up. The only advice I can give you is to listen to Spanish music, television, newspapers…anything. Dedicate an hour a day or an hour a week to it. It won’t seem like a lot, but you’ll mentally be processing it before you know it! I have a couple Spanish Pandora stations that I listen to every once in awhile to keep me up on it.

    As far as tutorials go, I would LOVE a tutorial on SUSHI!! The Mr and I made some the other night that came out AMAZINGLY…I’m surprised I’d never tried it before! I bet a lot of people out there are intimidated by it!

      We basically had the same childhood 😉 I did a backbend the other day just to see if I could still do it and I was surprised I didn’t injure myself haha!

      You’ve really motivated me to dedicate more time and energy to Spanish. Living in Arizona and having Hispanic family members I could certainly find ways to expose myself to the language to get more practice. How amazing that you lived in Mexico! I haven’t been since I was a kid.

      Sushi!! How funny – I was literally just talking about making sushi at home with a friend last night. We spent one class session on it in culinary school and it certainly requires some practice and patience but you’re right… it’s pretty amazing when you make it yourself.

    Love this, Tessa! I love anything with mushrooms. . I seriously think I could be a vegetarian if I had to b/c of mushrooms! :) I speak a little Korean. . wish I could speak more. . but wasn’t paying attention when my parents put me in Korean school every summer when I was a kid! That’s what we get for putting me in Korean school with my friends. We just goofed off!
    Totally regret it now. . especially now that I have kids. . and no instruments either. . I did take piano when I was a kid but didn’t like it. . it’s never to late though to learn! :)

      I can’t imagine trying to learn a language with a completely different alphabet. So much more difficult than Spanish. You’re right – it is never too late to learn!

    I loooove mushrooms. Those look so good.

    And I desperately wish I could surf. Though first I’d have to learn how to swim obviously..

      Haha learning how to swim might be helpful! I’d be terrified to learn how to surf. I HATE the feeling of water being shot up your nose, especially salt water.

    I am currently re-learning French, just started last Sunday. It was one of my majors when I was in college but I didn’t really get into it too much since I have a lot of other subjects to juggle and no one had the time to practice speaking it. 😛 Sure is fun to be going back to it. I want to learn how to bake too – that’s why I keep coming back here. That and the food you make looks awesome. =))

      Félicitations! I hope I’ve helped you learn how to bake a little :)

    Being Canadian, I did about 8 years of French in school, and I can’t speak it very well at all! I’d love to brush up on it. And I love these mushrooms!

      I’ve met a handful of French Canadians who come down to Arizona for the winter and it always makes me wish I knew at least a little bit of French!

    Ohhh I totally understand! I studied abroad in Spain and was fluent when I was there (I was in Granada, and no one there spoke English so I had no choice), but I think I’ve lost it…it’s sad! We should practice with each other LOL. These mushrooms are killer by the way! Love what you’ve stuffed them with.

    These mushrooms look scrumptious, Tessa! What a great little bite for summer entertaining. I love the flavors!

    I have such a mushroom addiction! It pairs nicely with my pork/ham/prosciutto/bacon addiction, so you’ve gone and done it for me this time! There is simply no way I can resist making these soon.

    And as for music, I have been blessed to grow up in a family of musicians (both professional and amateur) and to marry the most talented musician I’ve ever known. Unfortunately, being the daughter of a concert grade pianist didn’t rub off on me… every now and then I get back on and practice hard for a while, but I do wish I’d put more effort into it when I was taking lessons. And I hear you on languages. I was an exchange student in France in high school and was fluent, but just haven’t used it in the intervening years. I’d like to brush back up on that!

      Wow… sounds like you’ve got music in your blood! My boyfriend is a musician too. French would be a hard language to maintain because there aren’t many speakers here in the States and there isn’t much French media. I think I get at least 4 Spanish TV channels so I really have no excuse!!

    These look so so good, I love shrooms!

    I would love to learn how to knit – and crochet again. I always did it with my mom and grandma when I was a kid, would love to make some stuff for my kiddos now :)

    My mom kind of overloaded me with all kinds of activities growing up. I started swimming at 4 and started violin at 5. I played violin for 10 years and finally stopped at 15, which I’m totally regretting now. Hopefully when I quit my day job, I can start that up again.

    Anyway, these mushrooms – YES! Anything combined with prosciutto and parmesan is a plus in my book!

    It looks delicious! (:
    French is my first langage, but I know a bit of spanish from highschool (but I barely remember) and I took an Italian class last year, so I know just enough to order in a restaurant (but why would I want to do anything else than eat in Italy, anyway! hihi).
    It’s the first, but not last, time I visit your blog, I really like it! (:
