FFwD ~ moules mariniere

For this week, I made a catch-up dish too!
Above: Short Ribs in Port and Red Wine
which the Doristas made way back in 25 February, 2011
- not my fav but pleasant enough -

for moules mariniere:
I only managed to get frozen half shell mussels this morning
from a month old new outlet near my fav mom n pop grocer 
 omitted the chicken bouillon cube
used fresh young ginger
the above are the only two addition/omission
it was all mine!

  1. The ginger sounds like a lovely addition!

  2. How fun. I didn't even know you could get mussels on the half shell! I guess you don't have to worry about whether or not they open that way? I've never seen them!

  3. Wow, the half shell makes eating them easy, doesn't it?
    I just re-made those ribs a couple of weeks ago. They were one of my favorite!

  4. I've never seen or had mussels on the half shell great idea with ginger.

  5. Great addition with Ginger! love that these were already on the half-shell. The short ribs look terrific too - I've still got to make that one up

  6. Both your dishes look extremely tasty!

  7. I've never seen frozen mussels, but I'm glad that you were able to enjoy this. The ginger sounds like a great twist.

  8. Great idea using ginger. Loved these mussels.

  9. Looks good & love the addition of ginger ! YUM! ;)

  10. Those are green-lipped mussels aren't they?? ooo! Lucky you! Glad you enjoyed.
