New Orleans! + Sausage Stuffed Portobello

My amazing bridal party took me to New Orleans for my Bachelorette party and I have to say I had the best time of my life there. I got to do everything I wanted from playing with penguins to horseback riding to pole dancing and was even able to squeeze in some shopping! :)

Here are some snaps from the trip, which I will never forget:

After stuffing my face in New Orleans with delicious food and gaining some weight, I'm back to healthy cooking and made this the other morning, which was delicious!
