Baby Cuttlefish And Giant Mussels In A Cream/Saffron/Tumeric Sauce

H o Ho Ho this is one heck of a recipe. I am sure you all will love it. My wife came back from the super market yesterday with a 1 kg pack of  frozen, cleaned real baby cuttlefish and 1 kg of giant off the shell frozen mussels. The cuttlefish were about 3.5 inches from head to toe I mean the head to the end of their tentacles. I imagine you could make them with any size cuttlefish as long as they are thinly cut into bite size pieces. The mussels can also be the normal sized ones.  Don't forget that they will all shrink when they are cooked.

My Wife's Spinach with Cracked Wheat( Bulgur In English, Borghol in Arabic, Plighouri in Greek)

M y wife Maria likes to eat healthy. She prefers no salt in her food, not too many sauces, easy simple food. She uses Organic Kalamata olive oil at room temperature which she adds to the food after it is cooked. She neither fries, stir fry, or deep fry, does not use fresh butter or margarine but she sure ends up with a tasty healthy meal which I appreciate two to three times per week.
