Sea Scallops with Bacon

Sea scallops are so versatile, but my favorite way to prepare them is with bacon. Bacon wrapped sea scallops are really simple and I sometimes even make them for breakfast! Another easy way to enjoy them is to simply pan fry them and serve with garlic butter.

However, ordering them at a restaurant and getting them perfectly cooked and topped with bacon is even better! Scallops now remind me of Gordon Ramsey screaming about how they are overcooked or under cooked on Hell's Kitchen.

A few tips on panfrying scallops:

-Blot dry before frying
-Make sure the pan and oil in it is really hot
-Cook one side at a time until golden, flipping them only once after about 2 minutes

What is you favorite way to enjoy a sea scallop? Feel free to let us know by leaving a comment.

Heart Shaped Potato

I have found a heart shaped potato in previous bags of potatoes, but would always be in a rush to cook dinner. I would peel it and cook it up, but this time, the kids were in the kitchen with me. They found it to be interesting and wanted to take pictures of it and play with it for a bit. It was really cute and I thought about the times when we would paint using potatoes when I was in elementary school. This would be the perfect potato to paint with because it is already in the shape of a heart. It would simply need to be cut in half. Of course, I didn't have any paint on hand so the potato was peeled and cooked, just the same as the previous heart shaped potatoes that I have discovered. Lol.
