After an angst-filled hiatus populated with dollar cheeseburgers and too much beer, I’m tonight not only moved to cook something good, but to share it with you.

Here’s my version of Thai cooking – Coconut Curried Shrimp and Scallops with Basil and Vegetables:

This came out really tasty, with hints of coconut milk and lemon grass bumping the wonderfully sweet scallops into orbit, and fresh-chopped basil added at the last minute.  Served over steaming Basmati rice, the entirety was most satisfying!

As the pieces of my personal life settle into something closer to predictability, I hope to be able to share more of my dinners with you nice folks.

Ciao for now.

Another day, another dollop.

Well, not quite a dollop, perhaps a bit more chunked up than “dollop” might suggest.

Tonight, scallops with lemon and basil, with an assortment of lightly braised peppers, served over American basmati rice:

Enjoy!

Tonight marks the Autumnal Equinox in these parts.

Cool name.

So I’m offering up some scallops, ’cause scallops are cool. Or at least the scallops think they’re cool. And I agree. I’m a Scallop Ally.

First I’ll reduce some significant amount of white wine ’till it’s sweet enough to brown, then I’ll caramelize some fennel and add some tomatoes and fresh oregano

Then I’ll turn up the heat ’till it’s cracklin’ and toss in the scallops

Goodnight, Little Scallops!

And I’ll eat them up on a bed of lemon linguini

With a plastic fork. Because food is serious stuff.

‘S OK, I’ve had it for years
