Muscles & Mussels

Next Sunday.
My house.

Be there.

Mussels (1 lb per person, about $3 a pound)
3/4 butter stick
1 cup pre-sliced onion, red or white
1 clove garlic crushed
handfull of fresh parsely
3/4 bottle of white wine

Discard any open mussels. Pull off beards. Rinse in lukewarm water - NOT COLD!

Brown onions in a large pot (preferably with a clear lid so you can keep on eye on things later). Throw in wine. Put lid on. Steam for 5 minutes until they open. Discard any that didn't open (eating them can make you sick).

Serve with sliced french bread that you dip in the broth. Yum!

If you're one of those damned vegetarians, I'll make a gourmet cheese pasta, too. Just give me warning you're coming.

I want to go!

"Blergh" to distance that keeps me from smothering myself in rich buttery goodness.
