We tried a new restaurant "El Patio" everything is grilled on a big homemade charcoal grill. I had lime & garlic grilled shrimp, DH had a Tbone & both dinners came with grilled potato, grilled carrots & grilled zucchini. Then we went for gelato.

Click on this for more scallop pics

Dinner last night was quick and good. Good locally grown spinach, good Orange/Ginger rice, and seared scallops dusted with mushroom powder, Ginger powder, Chipotle chile (just a bit) and some fresh fine ground Sumatra coffee bean.

The scallops were very good but I honestly wish I was closer to a fantastic source of seafood rather than have to rely on frozen and plumped scallops. The 8 scallops weighed just over a pound frozen and just over 3/4 pound thawed and drained.

Very nice GadgetGeek. Colourful and appetizing. I love scallops, rice and spinach!

I made "Thai Chili Shrimp" over white rice last night. Quick, easy, sinus-clearing (lol), & delicious.

We had spaghetti last night. Now I need to figure out a dozen recipes to use all the left over sauce.

Callisto - whenever I have leftover tomato pasta sauce I use it for eggplant, chicken, or meatball parmesan sub sandwiches; homemade pizza (or mini English Muffin pizzas); stirred into a baked pasta dish (like penne or ziti) with lots of parm & mozzarella later on in the week; or as a topping for meatloaf. If you have a lot leftover, you can also freeze it.
