scalped? no scallops! I have been asking people to guest post for me not thinking that I would have to do the same - selfish old me thought that they would post for me and I could sit back and bask in the freedom of - well, freedom but that doesnt seem to be the case. Since Donna's blog is always so full of nice pictures I didnt want to disappoint so here you go...... Get ready for two days of scallops to come hitting you in the internet face. I picked up some 'bottom of the barrel' scallops the other day at 'bottom of the barrel' prices so I had some good ones to work with and then a bunch of raggedy pieces. The reason for the discount was the raggedy pieces but I didnt care one way or the other. We went to a garden party in my 'hood' and there were some people playing music. It was so peaceful I almost felt mellow. A picnic was laid out, a kid barbecue was started, the banshees got to go crazy in a "lord of the flies' sort of way and all was good in the land of sweetness! Back to the scallops. I made some fuffy basmati rice, a little browned butter with sage, some caramelized scallops, some pancetta, a little garnish and it was chow time. If you are not bothered by its attractiveness then you should probably enjoy this tasty concoction.
