What's For Dinner Wednesday

Tonights' story: a bag of scallops that was hanging around in my freezer becomes yet another WFDW recipe success!

Seared Scallops on Spinach with Apple Brandy Cream Sauce

This is one of those great recipes that looks and tastes much more complex than it is. It was fast and easy, it uses simple and readily available ingredients and it was yummy as heck....a home run as far as I'm concerned and good enough to earn a permanent spot in my "entertaining" recipe file.
At first thought, the combination of scallops and spinach sounded sort of weird but really, the spinach was the perfect foil to the rich sauce and the sweetness of the scallops. Just for the heck of it, I served the whole thing over some orzo that I cooked risotto style in seafood stock but I think it would work well with rice or potatoes, or just as-is for a starter course.

On the needles:
The dog sweater is done (and really quite fabulous)! It turned out much better than I was expecting given that I've never really designed a knitted object bigger or more complex than say, a mitten. You'll have to wait for the big reveal though because I'm still weaving in ends...

Mmmmm, I'm not sure I like scallops but it looks delicious.

I can't wait to see the model show off his new sweater!
I had to go directly over to print out that recipe.

Can't wait to see the doggie duds.
