Wonderful looking dinners, all.
Thank you, Cheryl. I always have your beautifully seared scallops in mind when I make them They were caught not far south of here.

Scallops are expensive around here. About $18.99/Lb.

Here, too. They were $18 for the pound. An occasional treat. It will be a while before we have them again.

We where going to have roast, but my thermometer failed and well it became lovely pulled pork instead. It tasted lovely of apples, whisky and allspice. I hope to make a roast soon, but sadly my clay pot from the 60.ties broke.

In spite of your issues, CakePoet, that dinner looks tasty.

Like Cheryl said, it's good to see your dinners showing up again, taxy!

Joey, another gem of a meal.

GG, you live in the south and you've never made green beans and potatoes? When I've done them (long ago, but your post made me think it's time again), I also sauteed bacon and, maybe, a bit of red onion. Nice sear on the scallops, BTW.

I will never forget 9-11. I watched the smoke from the towers hanging in the air from my backyard for what seemed like an eternity until all smoldering was out. Rest in peace.

We had leftover chili over brown rice.

Nope, never made them before. I will be making them more often, though. I like your recipe better than the one I found - a splash of white balsamic vinegar would be delicious

I didn't want to take the time to cook bacon, so I sautéed the onion in bacon fat from the fridge.
