Mussels & Matt’s Garlic!

Thank you Barefoot Contessa, this is her recipe. Best mussels I have ever made.  Her recipe says  cook the mussels in olive oli & white wine for 5 min. And I did, but the yummy part is the bread crumb mixture you toss them with after they are cooked. It consists of  white bread cut into cubes, toasted.  A lot of garlic from our farmer Matt, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, toasted pine nuts, sundried tomatoes, basil, S & P. Everything goes into the food processor. When the mussles are done you stir the mixture in with the cooked mussels. Soak the juices up with the bread. Are you with me Kim? Can you say this goes with corn!?

    Yeah, baby! Now that I know I love mussels, I would love to try them this way!
    Love the photo of the kids, and that was a long way to haul all of that food all the way to the pool!

    Looks like a fun summer dinner! And the recipe sounds like it only makes mussels even better. I’ll have to try it sometime.
