Mussels and fries

Chris borrowed his parents' deep fryer. So after years of fantasizing it was time for mussels, fries, and beer night. I tried making mayonnaise, which was difficult. Despite the stern warnings of the recipe I added the oil too quickly and the mayonnaise separated. Slightly strange texture aside, it was mighty tasty with the fries.
The mussels were steamed in a sauce of shallots, garlic, red onions, white wine, and bay leaves. Simple and delicious. Despite the Belgo's recommendation of 1kg of mussels per person, I'd say .5kg per person would still provide a feast.
