i’m heading out to colorado for work today. i think it’s supposed to snow. maybe a lot. i have a pile of granola bars and 2 new yorkers just in case there’s a delay.

can i make a snowman on the hotel lawn?


the other night i tried a new recipe. it was super yummy. i really should have taken a picture. i thought about it …about halfway through dinner. it’s adapted from a recipe i found on all recipes.

Pasta with Scallops, Zucchini, and Tomatoes

3 tbs. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced (or more. i used more)
2 zucchinis, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
2 fresh tomatoes, chopped
1/2 pound scallops
splash of white wine
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet heat oil, add garlic and cook until tender. Add the zucchini, salt, red pepper flakes, dried basil (if using) and saute for 10 minutes. Add chopped tomatoes, bay scallops, and fresh basil, and white wine (if using) and simmer for 5 minutes, or until scallops are opaque. Pour sauce over cooked pasta and serve with grated Parmesan cheese.

This recipe over half a box of pasta made 2 large dinners and one good-sized lunch.

Yummy. Seriously.
