Recipes for Ruby
Well, she has bloomed our Ruby has. She throws dinner parties, brings awesome hors d'ouerves to tailgates, and still mixes a mean martini. She does, however, like a recipe. This one's for you Ruby...
2 pounds of mussels
1 leek, thinly sliced (throw the tough top part out)
3 Tbsps of seeded mustard (i.e. Grey Poupon)
1 cup of white wine (something dry)
2 Tbsps of butter
2 Tbsps of whipping cream
1 Tbsp of chopped Italian flatleaf parsley
Salt and Pepper
Clean mussels. Melt butter in heavy bottomed pot. Saute leeks for 1 minute. Add wine, mustard, and mussels. Cook, stirring frequently till mussels open. Add cream and parsley. Stir. Have plenty of bread to sop up the broth.
