Had a wonderful Mothers Day, however I want to talk about Communication Zero, Chilli Muscles. Is it just me?
Michael said to me, ‘what would you like to have for Mothers Day evening dinner.’ I said, ‘We probably wouldn’t want much as Brittany was planning a lunch spread.’
He said ‘ I could do a light dinner, what would you like.’ I thought for a moment and dared ask for my favourite, ‘Chilli Muscles cooked in a chilli sauce.’
|This is what Chilli Muscles is supposed to look like.|
Generally when out I will often have these as that is my only opportunity. I bought a Wok several months ago, just for this purpose, imagining that we might have a go at making Chilli Muscles, as we all know I can’t cook, so was forever hopeful of a moment an opportunity just like this.
I said to Michael, ‘You can buy de-bearded muscles from either Woolworth’s or the Seafood shop at Southlands, you can also buy the chilli sauce that you cook them in.
‘ ‘Right’, he said, of he trotted at 3pm to Southlands our local shopping centre on a Saturday. You beauty thought I spoilt to the very end.
You know where this is going right. I know, I should know better, my mouth salivating in anticipation. Really I set myself up as you will see.
The next morning before I set of for my long walk with Sam, looking forward to the day, the lunch and then the dinner. I could taste it all.
All went well, and then late in the eventing he produces the muscles.
|I fail to see the de-bearded muscles in those black shiny shells, do you?|
|Not a great picture but it concerned me that these were good from May 2013 to May 2014.|
I said, ‘But they aren’t in the shell’ and he said but they are from New Zealand, like that was going to help. Then he produced the chilli sauce, you know the sauce that you cook them in, in the Wok.
Have you had the ones with the red sauce and the crusty bread to soak up the sauce. Well this is what he produced, his version of chilli sauce.
|One it’s not red and two it’s not right, just plain wrong.|
Clearly we are not on the same page, he has seen me order and salivate over chilli muscles, reckon he did it on purpose. Pay backs a bitch!!!!
