Caramelised Mushrooms

Here is a very special "Aussie" recipe and easy appetizer, especially if you are fond of mushrooms~and goat cheese! The flavor lingers long after the last bite!
8 oz. button mushrooms
1 T. olive oil
2 T. brown sugar
1-2 T. balsamic vinegar
8 oz. goat cheese
1 French Baguette, sliced and toasted
A few sprigs of fresh arugula
Place the mushrooms, sugar, oil and vinegar in a small bowl and toss until well coated. Place and cook in a non-stick frying pan for about 10 minutes. Keep stirring until the sauce begins to caramelize. Spread the goat chesse on the thinly sliced baguette and top with mushrooms and arugula. Now invite some friends over for a bite and glass of chilled white wine! Enjoy!

I love mushrooms and also goat cheese, so I would love some of your mushrooms.
I know it is hard to believe, but this afternoon, as I was riding my bike, I thought about you, because I just finalized our plans to be in Italy at about the same time as last year. Do you have any plans to travel to Italy in October?
