Moules Frites (Frites Courtesy of the Golden Arches)

With all the recent fanfare on Julia Child's, David wanted to watch her old "The French Chef" espisodes on DVD. Of course, that meant making a Julia recipe to go with the viewing that is easy for a school night endeavor. Moules frites was the answer but I was too lazy to even contemplate making frites at home. The answer? McDonald's!
The mussels were scrubbed and cooked in a mixture of wine, butter, shallots, bay leaf, and thyme.
The results were lovely and perfect with McDonald's fries and Japanese mayo.

Yummmm - where did you buy the mussels? I cooked a batch recently -- the sauce was great, but the mussels were lacking meat and succulence.
