I was working outside repairing the shed, so for dinner I just walked over and put some newspaper in the chimney starter and some charcoal. Went inside and sliced up some potatoes and tossed them in an electric skillet with some EVOO and grabbed a packet of pre-formed burgers from the fridge. I salt/peppered them and threw 'em on the charcoal grille.

Only pot I dirtied was the electric skillet.

Finished up the lobster salad on hot dog buns and then had a couple of small pieces of baked Haddock to munch on.

Last month, for our anniversary, we went to a restaurant that we both like, but prices keep it on our 'special occasion' list. I had a wonderful scallop dish and when I got home I searched for a similar recipe as a starting point for duplicating it. I was very surprised to find the actual recipe on a local news site in their food section.

Made it last night and will definitely do it again. Sous vide sea scallops with an orange miso glaze, over a roasted corn and edamame succotash, on top of truffles grits. In the restaurant it was garnished with pork belly, but the recipe just called for bacon - I went with the belly and I'm glad I did.

I thought 135 for 30 minutes was too long on the scallops especially with the acid in the orange juice, so I did 130. Next time I'll cut back more and only do 15-20 minutes at 125. I suspect the time/temp in the published recipe might have been for liability reasons, with so many people paranoid about food safety.

Their picture is so much better than mine.

And the recipe...
