Dinner... Sriracha Whole Roasted Cauliflower
Remove leaves and trim the base of the cauliflower.
Mix the following well, except for the Parmesan: 
1/4 c olive oil
1 lemon,  zested and juiced
1 T Sriracha sauce (or not if you don't like HOT)
1 T Sriracha mayonnaise (this would be better for tender tastes)
1 T cumin
1 T garlic powder
3 T Montreal Steak seasoning
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 400º. With a brush put the mixture all over the cauliflower...or use your hands. Place on parchment paper or a sheet liner on a cookie sheet or in a baking dish.
Roast until lightly browned and dry, about 30-40 minutes. Cool for 5-10 minutes. Slice into wedges and sprinkle on Parmesan. (I sprinkled on the Parm as soon as it came out of the oven)

Next was Sea Scallops....
3 T olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
2 (14oz) cans artichoke quarters, drained
salt and pepper
1/4 c parsley leaves, chopped (I used dried)
2 T capers, drained
16 sea scallops
1/2 c dry vermouth (or use lemon juice and 3 pats of butter)
Heat large non-stick pan  over med high heat, add a couple turns of olive oil and the chopped shallots. Cook a minute or so, add artichoke hearts and toss and heat. Season with salt and pepper and add parsley and capers.  Transfer to serving dish.

Wipe out pan and return to heat, raising heat a bit. Season drained scallops with salt and pepper. Add 1 turn of olive oil to the hot pan and place the scallops in the pan. Sear the scallops in a single layer, causing them to caramelize.. 2 minutes each side. Add vermouth and cook out the alcohol .. 1-2 minutes. Arrange on top of artichokes and serve.

These scallops I have been making for years. A fav of both Jerry and me! I like it better with the butter and lemon juice but either is GOOD!!! As for the cauliflower... it was AMAZINGLY GOOD too. I will make it again for sure!!!!

Later a chat with several of my gal pals, chair, wine, and TV. Then I fell asleep in my chair !!! Woke up and went to bed!

It has been said that paper is obsolete.
....It's only 39 seconds so please watch it all...the
irony won' t be lost on you. The wife's revenge is priceless!
(Thanks Steve 10-30 Dude Voors for this!)
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

National Corn Chip Day
Fritos Scoops my FAVORITE!!! 


According to popular lore, Fritos hail from San Antonio, Texas, where C. E. Doolin, who apparently had an obsession with making a snack based on corn that would not go stale too quickly, found a local man who had deep-fried corn snacks made from an extrusion of masa. Doolin bought the man's patent and recipe, and with the help of his mother perfected the recipe in his own kitchen (in much the same way that he later invented Cheetos).[1] He began selling Fritos in 1932 under the moniker of the Frito Corporation. Original Fritos ingredients were limited to whole corn, corn oil, and salt.
From 1952–67, the Frito Kid was the company's official mascot.[2] The Frito Bandito was its mascot from 1967 until about 1971, and was discontinued due to complaints about the Bandito image. He was initially replaced by the Muncha Bunch, a group of cowboys, which then were replaced by W.C. Fritos, modeled after comedian W.C. Fields.
National Corn Chip Day celebrates the Corn Chip. Fifty years ago, few Americans knew what Corn Chips were. Today, most American can not imagine life without this tasty, crunchy holder of salsa, cheese and (mostly) mexican dips. Its even sprinkled atop salads, making salads even more crunchy.  
On National Corn Chip Day, enjoy eating one of your  favorite snacks. And, take our Corn Chip corn chips for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks today! I don't know about you. But, I will find that easy to do.
