 How do you feel about mussels? I like them.

(I bet you think I’m going to make a muscle joke now – Good thought, but no.) 

I used to hate them — All bivalves actually.

Thought they were gross. And slimy.

And they smelled like dirty ocean.

Then, one day, I stopped being a baby.

I ate an oyster. And then some mussels. And then some clams.

And since then, I haven’t met a bivalve I didn’t like.

“It’s an empowering idea. The entire goliath of the food industry is ultimately driven and determined by the choices we make as the waiter gets impatient for our order or in the practicalities and whimsies of what we load into our shopping carts or farmers’ market bags.” - Jonathan Safran Foer ..............................................................
