Leave it to me to make a chilled soup in the middle of winter.
I just got an idea and ran with it and, little did I know, when my idea came to fruition, it would taste better as a cool summery soup than as a warm wintery one. Sometimes these things happen. Whatcha gonna do? (Shrugs shoulders.)
I went to one of my favorite local restaurants last weekend and ate a bowl of mussels in a red coconut curry sauce. And ya know what? It ruined me+mussels for the rest of my life, unless said mussels happen to be hanging out in a swimming pool of delightfully creamy and smoky red coconut curry sauce. In which case, they are goners.
