Dinner, Round 1

Last night instead of reaching for boxed pasta and a can of sauce, I made the effort for something different: Scallops (first time I've cooked them), fresh broccoli in a balsamic glaze, and a baked potato with fresh chives and sour cream (also, strangely enough, the first time I've baked a potato...) And the results? Delicious! I pan seared the scallops in butter and garlic and then deglazed the pan with beer and made a sauce for them. They mostly cooked correctly, but heaven watch out for undercooked scallops... even slightly and the gag reflex is thinking you're coming down with the stomach flu. The broccoli was scrumptious! Much Much Much better than the frozen stuff in a bag. And who doesn't like a baked potato with fixin's when it's a sloppy mess outside?

Tonight will have no such experimenting, though. My entire program is going to Taste of Thai on the Commons for Michael's birthday dinner. Can't wait!

That sounds so yummy!! Scallops are tricky to get right; I've recently come around to them after finally having good ones. I could so go for a baked potato now...
