Neither of us had ever cooked mussels, so we were a bit iffy about how long to cook them, and the first time we tried them we could tell they were a bit underdone because some of them were still quite difficult to open. We put them back on for a few more minutes until they opened up a bit further, and then they were perfect! The sauce was really nice and had a good bite to it from the chili and horseradish and was really tasty with the bread. The dish wasn't my top choice from Jamie's book, but it was really tasty and I would do it again!
I went to Moby's restaurant Teany today with Annmarie and Emily so I'll be writing about that soon! BUT I also wanted to share a little discovery I made yesterday at the cafe in the new buildings at Fordham. I haven't really tried any of the food there besides their egg sandwiches but I saw some interesting frozen vegan dishes from a company called Macro Vegetarian and decided to try the hunan dumplings. I fried them for a few minutes and ate them with peanut sauce and soy sauce, and they were really quite good! They have others like vegan Pad Thai and I would definitely give them a try. The packages are about $5.99 but they last for 2 or 3 meals so I think it's worth it! Anyone know anything about Macro Vegetarian?
