Seafood Fra Diavolo and Pasta

MusselsPicture source here

The other evening we had our annual Family Seafood Extravaganza Dinner. We bought so much mussels (direct from Maine and delectable) that my sister had to freeze the leftovers.

A few nights ago, my brother made his famous marinara sauce. He knows how much I love it and only get to eat it once a year so he made extra for me.

Tonight, we will combine both leftovers to create Fra Diavolo with Mussels over linguine.

I found a good recipe here Unfortunately, I don't think it will be as good as my dear brother's But I am not at liberty of sharing his recipe.

A Summer Indulgence - Bailey's Irish CreamShiver

My parents, brothers and sisters and I are not drinkers. But one thing my mom and I like to indulgence in once in a while is Bailey's Irish Cream over ice and with a touch of milk.

When we saw a commercial for a Bailey's Shiver, we knew we had to try it. We did change the recipe a tad by adding some milk to the recipe. We liked it.

But if you want the original recipe, check out the cute little animated version at the following:
