Special Night In: Mussels with Bacon and Blue Cheese


For a relaxing night in I like to make one of my all-time favorite  meals: 
Mussels with bacon and blue cheese.
Not only is this an absolutely positively scrumptious meal, 
but it is also extremely simple to make.
To serve two hungry tummies all you need is: 

2 pounds Prince Edward Island mussels 
3 large shallots (or 1 large onion) chopped fine 
4 or 5 strips of bacon, diced
1 cup of fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
3 cups white wine - ~ 1 bottle of wine (including a glass for you)
  1 large pot

Sunday Funday: Brunch With My Loves

Okay, so I've been a little behind in my blogging lately, but I promise, I'll be better! Remember how I said I'd tell you how the brunch with my two lovely friends went?  Well here it is!
I woke up extremely hungry and my tummy was craving some delicious homemade breakfast food. So Katie and I  went to the store early in the morning to make sure we were fully stocked with the essentials: bacon, eggs, toast, berries, champagne & orange juice for mimosas, pretty flowers for the table, and of course, more bacon.
