Asian Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

So I’ve just moved to the most beautiful little town. Hood River, Oregon is just 45 minutes East of Portland nestled right along the Columbia River. I can see Washington from my front porch! I also have a lovely view of Mt. Adams (Washington) and if I run just down the street a bit I…
