Pics aren't great, but it was a good dinner.
Seared scallops in bacon/butter mix, deglazed with reduced fish stock, onion, cherry pepper and garlic mince.
Beans were a frig clean out....black eyed peas and garbanzo beans with tomatoes, egg whites from this mornings hollandaise sauce, dab of cream cheese, onions, sweet peppers, fresh ginger, basil, thyme, I forget what else.
Fresh cut asparagus from the garden with this morning's hollandaise sauce (traditional eggs benedict for M-Day brunch).
Salad had a vinaigrette dressing that has tomatoes, oregano and basil mixed in. Not bad.
Desert (no pics) was 2 large strawberries stuffed ABT style with strawberry cream cheese, strawberry jam and powdered sugar. Chocolate base (to sit up in) was milk chocolate mix with vanilla, butter, touch of cream cheese and 1 Tbs milk. Top was covered in chocolat and powdered sugar sprinkle.
Washed down with a nice Merlot.
I know, it sounds like a guilt dinner.....you're right.
