Kim had to work yesterday, but he came home and made me a fantastic meal.
He cooked up a batch of fettucine, which he dressed simply with garlic infused olive oil & butter, S&P and parmesan cheese.
He sauteed fresh asparagus from our garden in the same garlic/oil/butter mixture, seasoned with S&P and a squeeze of lemon juice.
He seasoned scallops and large shrimp with S&P and a dash of Cajun seasoning (Tony's), and seared first the scallops, then the shrimp in the garlic/oil/butter mixtured also.
This was served with sourdough breadsticks to soak up the juices.

I told him he's becoming a gourmet cook, and he says it's easy when I tell him what to do. LOL!

We get by with a little help from our friends
