Okay, so I invited the ILs over for New Years lunch on Thursday. The plan: scallop amuse-bouche, camembert roast chicken with whatever veg is available on Wednesday, and either granita or a chocolate fountain for dessert (depending on how hot it is and how lazy I am).
I drew up this menu before we went away in November, because I knew if I wanted seafood of any kind, I'd have to get it in the city (frozen, of course, but from a very reputable fishmonger). And when I drew up the menu, I had never cooked scallops before. So I bought extra to try out before the big day, and that's what I did tonight.
I made pan-seared scallops and cappellini in a white wine garlic sauce. OMG you guys, serious foodgasm. Scallops are SO MUCH EASIER than I thought! And the white wine garlic sauce is a-freakin'-mazing and I will be using it on all the foods.
So what's for dinner, TK?
