OT Anniversary cook… scallops, and stuff.

calikingcaliking Posts: 17,424
We both sort of forgot our anniversary. Caliqueen remembered it just in time. Not sure that I did. 

She loves scallops, so here we go. 

Pea and parsley purée. With ginger and shallots. 

Zuke “ravioli”  (feta + pesto in the mids), topped with homemade onion citrus marmalade. 

And… scallops. 

Shades of green and brownish. Not my best plating. I could eat a plateful of the pea purée and onion marmalade. Caliqueen enjoyed it, so I’m calling it a day. She said she’d sign up for at least another year =)

    Congratulations on the celebration and that impressive plate.  Scallops for the win, every time.

    Congrats. Have to make sure my swmbo doesn't see this. You should have enough brownie points for a chamber sealer now.

    Thank you all, for the kind words, and wishes. Just happy that someone puts up with me. 

    And, @Canugghead I've had my eye on a chamber sealer for a bit. One of these days, it'll show up at the door, and I'll deny knowing how or why that came to be.
