For religious reasons or otherwise, Sundays have always been special. They’re a day of treats (like McDonald’s after mass) and reflection (like spending an entire day fasting). Nowadays, in the fall, the treats always include football.
Today, we weren’t making rice like El Chavo. Instead, we went with grilled mussels. Nothing like grilling with butter, garlic, and parsley. Mm-mm-mm (and a big thanks to 30 seconds of a Julia Child show on PBS that taught me how to make these).
