Top 10 Thursday Recipe

Lake Norman Financial Group, Inc. is a  fantastic group of female financial advisers in the Lake Norman area dedicated to helping their clients with financial management and planning. More than that, these ladies go above and beyond – taking the time to really listen and getting to know their clients needs and wants.

I was out last evening at Lake Norman Financial in Cornelius, NC  for their Top 10 Thursdays event; one that they host monthly as a way to network and connect with their clients. The topic is always “Top 10” –  10 ways to save more, 10 ways to plan for retirement, 10 ways to find the house you want, 10 ways to dream big, (1)

Last night, I had the opportunity to co-host the event and bring “Top 10 Ways in Enjoy the Holidays without Destroying You Waistline” to the table. Along with presentation material, I made 3 appetizers to sample as a means to share with attendees that it is really not hard to make healthy choices while enjoying the holidays. All 3 recipes were a huge hit!!  In fact, I am pretty sure I could have made 3x the amount of these and they still would have disappeared.

Heading to a party, tailgate, girls night out, baby shower, church event this weekend??  Try these!

Feta Stuffed Mushrooms (I tripled this recipe last night)

  • 8 medium sized mushrooms
  • 2 mushroom stems
  • 2 tbsp reduced fat feta
  • ½ tbsp parsley
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 425.

Wash mushrooms and pull off stems, saving two.

Add remaining ingredients and 2 minced stems in a food processor.  Mix well and divide among mushroom caps. Bake 13-15 minutes.
