I went to pick up my CSA farm share yesterday at Tangerini’s farm. There is nothing like being on a farm. It really is a happy place for me. 🙂 In addition to fresh lettuce, summer squash, beets, scallions and Bok choy, I went out in the fields to pick some fresh chives, thyme and oregano. I also picked a few sugar snap peas too.The local fish guy from Foley’s fish was selling fresh sea scallops and I knew I needed to get some of them too! The scallops were out of this world! I mean melt in your mouth GOOD!
To prepare the scallops for cooking, I gave them a quick rinse.
I decided to simply sear the scallops in a bit of garlic infused oil and a tad of butter, to help with the browning. I sprinkled a bit of sea salt and pepper on the scallops and added a few sprigs of thyme to the skillet to infuse it’s gentle flavor.
Russ and the kids bought me my first ever Vitamix! I can’t wait to whip up all sorts of new recipes and treats!
