Well…at least there is still cooking (as a hobby that is)

I’ve been feeling the pressure lately to do nothing but pack for our move which takes place in 3 weeks! Ack! Well, frankly my dear, this is no fun at all! Actually, in a wierd sort of way it is fun, but I’d rather be doing other things. Cooking is one thing you can do for yourself (if you’re like me and actually enjoy it) but at the same time, not feel guilty about it because you are doing something for your family too! Brilliant!

I made a nice dinner tonight. Broiled Scallops with Button Mushrooms, Curried Rice with Raisins and Steamed Peas. Lovely.

My husband and I have however, turned into senior citizens, often eating dinner at an extremely early time (um, like 4 in the afternoon!) Then again, when you’re up for the day at 4:45, it sort of throws the whole day off now doesn’t it?!?

At any rate, here is my recipe for the BEST Broiled Sea Scallops..enjoy!

Broiled Sea Scallops

1 Pound Sea Scallops

1 tsp. Garlic Powder

Pinch of Table Salt and Dash of Pepper

4 Tbsp. Margarine or Butter, melted

2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice

Arrange Scallops in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt & pepper. Mix together margarine and lemon juice, and pour over scallops. Broil in oven for about 8-10 minutes or until they appear whitish in colour instead of opaque. Do not over-cook them though or they will be rubbery!
