Mussels in the shell is something my granddad eats. Something I thought grown-ups ate when they became grown-up. The food of the adult. 
I think I’ve eaten the odd one, out of the shell, by mistake when eating linguine at my friends. But the whole idea I found alittle scary (I think anything shelled is scary to eat to be honest!!).

Yesterday I tried one in a Thai restaurant. It was really yummy and not what I expected. The texture wasn’t slimy but quite meaty.

Does this mean I’m officially a grown-up??

What’s my next adventure food for the bucket list???
