Cooking With Fresh Produce - Stuffed Mushrooms

I picked up my second bag of produce from the Community Helpings Co-op tonight and it was stuffed full of  wonderful fresh produce.  This co-op is unbelievable!  What a bargain.  Just check out what I picked up for just $21.50.  I should have taken pictures again so I could share.  This is AWESOME!

4 cucumbers
6 plums
3 bell peppers
5 white onions
1 lb green beans
1 lb broccoli crowns
5 apples
8 pears
1 bunch bananas
1 spaghetti squash
1 clam shell of grape tomatoes
2 kiwis
1 bunch of red grapes
1 honey dew melon
1 bunch of celery

I'm sure there are things I'm forgetting - the bag was soooo heavy!

Emma and I created a fabulous recipe to use the fresh mushroom that came out of the last bag.  We stuffed them with a mixture of the following:

1 lb sausage (cooked, crumbled, and drained)
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup shredded or fresh mozzarella
1 tsp thyme
salt and pepper to taste

Cook and brown the sausage.  Make sure all grease is removed.
Add cheeses and spices.  Stir to melt cheeses and mix spices.
Stuff 1 Tbsp full of mixture into mushroom caps.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
