And so we had mussels for dinner the other night. A while back while watching BOBBY FLAY on his show THROW DOWN on the Food Network he visited a joint called Grandeville Moore in Washington DC. The Throw Down on this episode was on Mussels. I quickly emailed Emily to tell her of this restaurant and she's been 3 times! 3 TIMES! The only negative to this place is the wait. And wait she does - last week the wait was 2.5 hours! NOW THAT'S A VERY LONG TIME TO WAIT TO EAT MUSSELS. So my challenge the other night, was to make the mussels as good as she eats them down in DC. The recipe is really so straight forward, but my SECRET INGREDIENT is...MY HOMEMADE CHICKEN STOCK! Yes indeedy all those chickens I've been grilling all fall have made a freezer full of stock. I gathered together all the ingredients for steamed mussels which is basically, olive oil, garlic, white wine, chicken stock, butter and parsley - oh and of course the mussels. And did we devour them!
The final verdict from Em, 4 FORKS, or a BIG THUMBS UP for Jane! WOOT WOOT!
NO MORE TURKEY FOR A LONG WHILE HERE AT THE CAHNS!
