I can’t remember our first kiss. I don’t know what that means. Is this what happens? Gradually my memories will fade, and become replaced with new people, and new times? I don’t want to forget you. I don’t want to have a day where i wake up and I can’t remember your smell, or your touch, or the hidden freckles you have. I know what I’ve lost, but I don’t want to lose it all. I just want to keep a part of you tucked away, irreplaceable space.
I still think about this day. I was sitting next to you on the subway, and a stranger saw us and said, “she really loves you.” I guess he just caught a vibe.
I love almost every type of seafood. I especially love the fresh light flavour of mussels. They are super versatile, working in so many different types of sauces and cooking styles. I was always a little intimidated by them because I had this mentality that they were very complicated to cook. Alas, that is not the case! Mussels require very little knowledge to cook, and very few ingredients to make delicious. Some shallots, good white wine, oil and herbs and voila – perfect mussels. Additionally, they are very reasonably priced! My sister made them for me the other night with some hot crusty bread to dip in the leftover sauce and it was the perfect meal. So, if you were ever feeling a little intimidated by these crustaceans, I would like to reassure you that they are super simple to cook, and make for the perfect comfort food.
