Dinner was reruns, but I wanted to share this recipe with you. It was one of Jerry's and is one of my favorites. Original from the Frugal Gourmet, Jeff Smith:

2 cups mayonnaise (Best Foods of course!)
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 T. lemon juice
Mix well.
2 cups shrimp
1-2 cups scallops
2 cups fake crab (or real, but $) or fresh squid
Quickly sauté the above in butter or olive oil, and cool.
2 pounds muscles, steamed and cooled
chopped sweet onion
chopped bell pepper
grated carrot
1 cup chopped celery
Mix all together with dressing and refrigerate several hours. Even any type of pasta would be good in this dish.
Ok, so then it was chair, wine, and TV. NO, I didn't watch any of the DNC. GAG~!!!! Lies lies lies. Fortunately the news was recorded so I could speed through the politics.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
