Snow on the road side, although it is fast receding after some rain this week. Rain in February in Vermont is so depressing.

My son made a Freedom Tower at school using a 3D printer. Makes me smile.

And these unbelievably yummy “burgers” make me smile.

Meaty portobello mushrooms get coated in a sweet and sour glaze before being layered with lemony avocado mash, salty halloumi, spicy rocket and creamy mayo. So good and totally out of the ordinary.

1 large avocado
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 portobello mushroom caps

1. Mash the avocado with a fork and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with half the lemon juice, then set aside.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, season with pepper and cook, turning, for 6 minutes or until slightly softened. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan along with the thyme, chilli, lemon zest and remaining lemon juice. Cook, turning mushrooms to coat, for 2 minutes, then drizzle over the honey, vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook, turning, for a further 1 minute or until well coated. Remove pan from heat.

3. Place another skillet over medium heat. Add the halloumi and cook, turning, for 3 minutes or until golden.

4. Divide the avocado among bun bases and top each with a slice of halloumi, a mushroom cap, mayonnaise, rocket and bun tops.

A little funk, a little classic rock, this new song by Liverpool-based band The Levons is all sorts of cool.
