Scallops. I've never cooked them before, but they were on offer at under a pound so why not :) ? Fingers crossed. (And does anyone know any good recipes?)

My favorite way: cook them in butter, garlic and white wine until opaque, on low heat. While these are cooking, make a homemade vinaigrette (mustard, olive oil, and vinegar, with some spices). When scallops are done (10 min. or so), place over fresh greens, and pour vinaigrette over the greens. So good.

Yes yes. When i was cooking scallops habitually i didn't use mustard but yeah that is how to cook them. They are super tasty.
It's alright, man. I'm only bleeding, man. Stay hungry, stay free, and do the best you can.

Wrap them with bacon, if that is not a dietary concern. Other than that, good luck. I don't know much about scallops, except they taste delicious when wrapped in bacon.

PSA - cardboard is also delicious wrapped in bacon  ;D

Made a vegan "shepherd's pie" with carrots, Brussels sprouts, corn, tempeh and onion in a heavily herbed tomato-garlic broth, topped with mashed sweet potatoes.

Kind of odd, but BF really liked it.

It's DH's week to cook. I think tonight I may request his "specialty." Tomato noodle soup. And see if he'll throw in half a grilled cheese sandwich.  :)

Cheesy potato soup. It was my first time making it, and it was so good!

Spaghetti with meat sauce, corn bread and a kiwi. Hot spiced cider for dessert.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Noodles and broccoli in peanut sauce, but since I don't own peanut butter, it's actually almond sauce.

Filleted chicken breast with cajun seasoning cooked in bacon grease with capers and crumbled bacon. Super yum.
