Pasta Salad with Mussels and cherry tomatoes
I must admit, that this year was not spent much cooking outdoors. I’m getting really comfortable with just hitting for the restaurants and getting others to cook for me. Now that isn’t such a bad idea either?With the seasonal weather changing to be colder, darker, wet-ter and just nothing enjoyable to stay outside and freeze your buns out, I’d opt for eating out. Moreover we’ve been hitting for destinations where food’s real cheap, too cheap to think of even cooking by yourself, so that was it… But I promise you, next year is going to THE outdoor year spent cooking cooking cooking and äähmmm, climbing too… nevertheless I still have some recipes up my sleeves for you to try out.
This Pasta Salad with Mussels recipe was amazingly delicious! It’s tasty, refreshing and so easy for outdoor cooking. It surprised my hubby that it turned out really “lecker” and I surprised myself that it tasted so good. Happy ending afterall…phew! :-)
