I know things have been a little quiet around here. Sorry about that. I’d like to say that it was because I was so busy over my birthday weekend but that wouldn’t be true. I was just lazy.
Not that my birthday weekend wasn’t great. It was. In our house we have a tradition where the birthday boy/girl gets to choose where they’d like to go out for dinner. But this year I didn’t want to do that.
I had a hankering for mussels and that’s sort of a crap shoot in restaurants. Sometime they’re great, but sometimes they’re disappointing. I wanted amazing, so I made them myself. If you are a mussels fan, you can check out my recipe which is pretty damn amazing if I do say so myself.
Other than enjoying one of my favorite meals, I did blissfully nothing. Actually, that’s not entirely true. I watched eight episodes of Downton Abbey which means I’m finally caught up to the current season. And this is not a good thing because I’m thoroughly addicted and I have no patience to wait for new episodes.
So, that leads me to my question for you. Do you have a favorite series? Can you recommend one? I need something to occupy my time until the next Downton Abbey episode.
