Good 41º clear sunny morning.
Wow, the sun and the warm temperatures are so nice! 73º by noon. Then 82º by 3pm.
We're supposed to stay in the 80ºs until Thursday night when there is a possibility of rain and also on Friday.
Lunch was deviled eggs made with Pomegranate Mayonnaise. OMGOOOD!! Walden Farms products are calorie free and everything I have ever tried was super good!
I also had some Greek Gods Honey Lemon Yogurt with some fresh strawberries.
Yesterday afternoon Mike Hannan came over. Just after he got here Dude went out and rolled around in the grass by the carport. OMG! His back was wet and STUNK! I don't know what it was but it was sickening. I got the hose and some Neutrogena Clean Shampoo, put his collar on and drug him to a spot where I wet him down, put on the shampoo, and scrubbed it in and then rinsed him. What a difference. Then I wiped him down with dryer sheets. Good thing it was warm out so he could dry!!! We don't know what it was he rolled in but Mike thought it could have been deer pee. Sigh............
Anyway, Mike was really busy weed-eating and mowing. More to do, so he may be back today or tomorrow....
This was a Rachael Ray recipe I changed. She used more capers, which made it too salty. She also used vermouth and I like the lemon juice and the butter! Cut this recipe in half for 2 or if there is just 1 of you, then you'll have leftovers! This was one of mine and Jerry's favorite recipes!
Sue's Best Scallops
3 T extra virgin olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
2 14oz cans quartered artichoke hearts in water, drained
salt and pepper
1/4 cup parsley leaves, chopped
1 T. capers, drained
16 sea scallops
1/2 cup lemon juice
3-4 pats of butter
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add two turns of olive oil, about 2 T. of chopped shallots. Cook shallots in oil a minute or so, add artichoke hearts and toss to heat through. Season with salt and pepper and combine with parsley and capers. Transfer the artichokes/shallots to a serving dish.
Wipe out the pan to heat, raising heat a bit. Season drained and trimmed scallops with salt and pepper. Add 1 turn of olive oil to a very hot pan and immediately place scallops in pan. Sear the scallops in a single layer, causing them to caramelize, 2 minutes on each side. Add the lemon juice and butter pats and allow it to reduce a bit, 1-2 minutes. Arrange the scallops over the top of the artichoke hearts and serve.
