I love an idyllic Sunday.
The kind when unavoidable soccer practice with the kids ends up with a pot of mussels stewing in white wine, herbs and butter in my favorite Mauviel copper pot.
It's the sign of good things to come.
It doesn't hurt that the recipe is one of Julia Child's classics and that she'd make this for her husband Paul nearly everyday for lunch. It was his favorite.
Followed by a nice long nap my idyllic Sunday, check.
You know how much I love my Italian style mussels that I have cooked many a version of. But these are a classic and so beloved have they become, that I urge you to make these - quickly.
The fact that you'll put these together in less than 30 minutes, means that you don't have to wait for a Sunday to fix these. Fix these on a busy weeknight, and what started out as a heactic day might just end on a lighter, lovely note.
Don't take my word for it. Listen to Julia Child y'all!
