What can I do with all these steamed mussels?

My husband is out of town, so I decided to treat myself to my favorite food that he hates... mussels! I sauteed onion, celery, and garlic before adding the mussels and a glass of sauvignon blanc - finished it all up with flat-leaf parsley and thyme, a load of black pepper, added some more butter to the liquor, and settled down in front of a DVD with some french bread and the rest of the wine.
My eyes were much bigger than my stomach - I've got about 40 mussels left (they're the small Scottish kind) and a little over a cup of the liquor. Soooo... the question is, what can I make with the mussels tomorrow? Any ideas are welcome! Yes, I know they won't be as perfect as they would have been fresh, but I'm thinking something with a lot of flavor and spice will make up for that. Also...how should I store them in the refrigerator in the meantime? Should I leave them in the shells or not? Mix them with the liquor? Refrigerate the mussels and the liquor separately?
