Culinary adventures on the high seas: Rotten tomatoes, savory mussels and more bananas
We’ve had a few culinary adventures in the last two weeks, one of them being the tomatoes we delicately wrapped in tinfoil. Remember that little gem of advice about sealing tomatoes to keep them fresh? It turns out that strategy does nothing toward their preservation.
In fact, opening up the balls of foil is like opening up a stink bomb; you never know how bad it’s going to be until you peel back the wrapping and see a squishy tomato-like mess inside.
On the other hand, we’ve had some great meals, albeit unusual ones. We’ve consisted on a diet of banana bread, fried bananas, dried bananas, banana smoothies and banana pudding (among other things). And we managed to pull 20 mussels off a buoy we found floating by then boiled them for dinner. I have to say, spaghetti with a side of buoy-mussels is pretty delicious.
