@ Lagom : Thank you for the info on those mussels, I would just love to try them. They look so much nicer than the ones we get here and I'm sure you love seafood as much as myself.   @ Jake : That was all served the same night . There were six of us eating lobster the other wanted salmon. Seven lobster were bought,  my brother easily ate two , we felt right at home eating it.  Last night was turkey dinner on an Indian reserve. I brought the dessert, it was very good....
when making crème brulee , if there are air bubbles after you have sieved your liquid , simply take your torch and burn of the air bubbles. Your dish will have a flat surface once its cooked. Always fill the water bath once the pan is in the oven with boiling hot water.

A Selfie I took just now....yikes !

What I would call over the top food portions.   I believe that less is more.    For plates, home use, I use white . Name : Cashmere by Maxwell & Williams - visually square but sloping to a round shape. At work it is Spode in various patterns.     I have other decorative patterns which are used as well depending the food and...
