Sizzling...


I'd thought I'd post a picture a la Dagny. I decided to cook tonight, since I went to the trouble of buying all of the necessary ingredients, and didn't want the pricey scallops to go bad. So, I made Citrus-Scallops with Sweet Vegetable Saute from one of my old WW cookbooks. You can find the recipe, and more details of my culinary disasters, over at The Cooking Corner. (Just for you Jill, I finally messed with my template and added the link on my sidebar - I've been meaning to do it for a while, but now it's finally done!)
Traffic tonight sucked, and set me back, so I was really hungry when I got home, and it showed in my cooking distraction. I made more mistakes than usual...but if you've read any of my past recipes...you'll see that I have a tendency to improve anyway. It turned out pretty well, but I think I might have to give it another shot, another time, when I am less distracted. (And amazingly enough, Gracie was not one of the distractions. I think my opening the sliding glass door helped - she loves sitting by the screen when the glass is open. And now that I've closed the door, she's sleeping smack dab in the middle of the living room.)
This post really had no point. Sorry about that. If you've gotten this far - thank you for reading! Sometimes I just let the stream of consciousness flow. Guess this was one of those times. :)

Yay!!! Food porn. And good thinking to distract Gracie while cooking.

That looks delicious... how many points is it?

Dagny - I wasn't even thinking to distract the cat...I was hoping to get some air flow through the house so the smoke detector over my front door (across the apartment) wouldn't go off. It tends to do that when there's smoke in the kitchen...

Fluffycat - 7 points for 1 1/2 Cups! And that is a pretty good sized serving.

This looks really good. I will have to buy me some scallops on the weekend to cook this bad-boy up.

Here you are posting away on The Cooking Corner, and I'me not.

Boo me!

But I've been busy getting my on-line store up. So maybe that buys me an excuse. If anyone wants to take a peak, it's www.orelindes-originals.com

What exactly are scallops? I've never heard of them before in my life and now, all of a sudden, it's like they're everywhere! I'm just dying to try them!

DT - see below for scallop info. You made me research (though I was thinking of doing it anyway), and now I know what I've been eating. They're really good, but not the cheapest.
