She’s an inspiration for everyone around her and she’s destined to do great things. But she needs your support right now. Even if it is just sharing this post, repost, reblog, have a ball!

Well, I had a smoked mushroom burger presentation today. This could be the next big thing! Slice, roast, smoke, chop, incorporate, grill! So simple, so flavorful! Now they have to talk to the mushroom council and make a decision. We might as well be in Middle Earth! #mushrooms #taste #burger #flavor #grill #bbq #proud2bcia  (at The Culinary Institute of America) High-res
