Yes, I am still here. Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I have become intimate with window replacement specialists. No joke!
We are at that point in our home's life span that we are in desperate need of replacement windows. This is what I call "a not fun project". Kitchen remodeling, new drapes, new accessories...all fun. Windows, not so much.
Vinyl, aluminum clad, pvc, wood (not again)...have become household words lately. Bleck...
Slowly but surely, we are narrowing down our options. I am ready to move on to the exterior paint colors...FUN in my book!!!
I have truly kept hubby entertained throughout imitating our sales people! To the point we were held hostage in our car in the Home Depot parking lot to AVOID said salesperson who was on his way out to his car.
We park, hubby is about to get out of the car when I spot "sleazy, I have no idea what I am talking about, salesperson" coming out of the store..."GET BACK IN, NOW!" Hubby, "huh????" Me, "DO WHAT I SAID!" LOL Me trying to avoid another 3 hours convo with said salesperson learning more than I want to know about his daughter, mother, aunt, uncle...dead grandparents (ok, maybe not, but you get my point).
Ok, you came for the yummy scallop recipe...
Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Chili Butter Sauce
2 pounds Large Scallops
1/2 pounds Bacon, Cut Into Thirds or Halves
1 stick Butter
2 teaspoons Chili Powder
Dash of Cayenne
Wrap bacon pieces around the outside of the scallops, then attach with a wooden skewer.
Cook in a 425 degree oven (on a drip pan) for 20 minutes, or until bacon is sizzling and brown
Cook under the broiler for 15 minutes, or until bacon is sizzling and brown
Grill until bacon is sizzling and brown.
Melt butter and stir in chili powder and cayenne. Drizzle over scallops before serving.
Can't be any simpler. We served it with spinach wilted in garlic butter. Perfect compliment.
