Steamed seafood is a favorite of mine.  There was a place on the beach in Florida that we used to go to for their steamed mussels. It was across the street from the Gulf, perched on the bank of the intracoastal. The view was fantastic and the mussels were equally as good.

We would sit by the window and order a bowl of mussels and a couple glasses of chardonnay.  This was accompanied by their delicious bread and butter. Yum! 

Sadly they closed, and even though they reopened a few years later in another location, it was not the same. I continue to order mussels but I haven't found any to compare to those.

On another note, I was a little steamed yesterday when a bottle of olive oil slipped through an opening in my cart and broke at my feet, dousing my shoes and jeans.  Ugh!

  1. First of all, NO WAY! Did that really happen!!??? That sounds like something that would happen to me! ACK!!!! What a mess!

    Then of course... great minds think alike! Steamed seafood... mussels, clams... add garlic, olive oil... some spice... broth..... yummmmmm!

    1. Yes, Katherine, the olive oil fiasco really happened, and it was a mess. I think my shoes have recovered.

      Yes, seafood is wonderful...all kinds!

  2. That always stinks when you find a place with amazing food, a dish you love and then ... they close. Been there before, too. Ugh!

    1. We have experienced that a number of times, both locally and in our travels. I was really excited to learn that they were reopening, but it wasn't the same and the new location did not have the same atmosphere.

  3. Like your take on two different meaning of STEAMED:~) I think I prefer the mussels than the mess:`)

    1. Yeah, me too. The mess was totally my fault, but I was still a bit steamed - at myself for not realizing it could fall through. Fortunately the shoes survived.
