One of our youngest son's favorite foods is mussels. He requested them for his namesday, so I made them tonight (a few days late!) using another recipe from @inagarten's Barefoot in Paris cookbook. They are a huge hit! Every recipe that I use from the Barefoot Contessa has gotten rave reviews!

We're celebrating my husband's birthday a day early with this seafood feast inspired by @inagarten. Her recipes for Mustard Sauce (using vegan mayo), Cocktail Sauce, and Mignonette Sauce (meant for raw oysters, but I bet it'll taste good on other seafood) make this seafood platter pretty fancy. You can find the recipes for these sauces in her Barefoot in Paris cookbook. Cheers to my wonderful husband! May God grant him many years!

Every year, when Holy Week rolls around, I kick myself for not having ordered this little set of books for the Lenten Services. Not this year! The @svots bookstore has the entire set in one neat little package. Now to write my name on each one, so that they can find their way back to me when I inevitably leave them in church.

This past Saturday's WSJ had a fabulous article on design in Bloomsbury AND a review of a new book on Angela Thirkell's life. Last week was a slow start to my Euclid Shawl (Quince & Co. pattern in their Jupiter colorway), but now that I've gotten into the groove of the stitches, I think it will move along more quickly.

I made Cowboy Caviar today for my husband and it was another hit. I used the recipe from Natasha's Kitchen which calls for Italian dressing, so I tried Sir Kensington Pepperoncini Italian (bought at Walmart). He ate this dish like a salad, but I think it is typically served as a dip for tortilla chips. Either way, it was delicious!
