I don't know why I've never made mussels before. I always order them when I see them on a menu, but the thought of making them at home always intimidated me. Little did I know that they are truly easy to make. I used one of Ina Garten's (I mean, who else would I go to?) recipes (found here) and they turned out fantastic. I'm definitely making them again and again. Oh, and talk about an inexpensive meal. I paired it with a nice green salad and some toasted baguette with garlic...the perfect meal, in my opinion.
This blog is really slooooooooooow lately, I'm aware and sorry. I just have my hands full with a now very energetic 4.5 month old who likes to be entertained CONSTANTLY. I know you moms of two-year-olds are thinking "ha, she hasn't seen nothin' yet". We're taking full advantage of the great weather and have been to the pool (which he surprisingly loves!) a lot. I've also started hitting the gym hardcore because I refuse to buy an entirely new wardrobe (I'm two sizes larger since having the baby). It's been 4 1/2 months and I still have 20 pounds to lose. Crap. I have some fun and hopefully useful new momma posts up my sleeve, but haven't been able to knock them out just yet. I hope to soon!
