I have been trying lots of new recipes since I'm doing the Weight Watchers thing. This is part of what I made on Friday night. It was sooooo good. And so easy!


2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds sea scallops
1/4 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs

Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Dredge the scallops in breadcrumbs. Add scallops to the pan, cook 4 minutes. Turn scallops and cook 3 minutes or until done.

Another new favorite that is even easier than the scallops:


1/2 cup cider vinegar or beer
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined, leaving tails on
cocktail sauce

In a medium saucepan, mix vinegar, water and Old Bay seasoning. Bring to a boil on medium heat. Gently stir in shrimp, get them all coated with seasoning, then cover. Steam for 2 or 3 minutes, just until shrimp turn pink. Drain well. Serve immediately or refrigerate if you want to serve cold. Serve with cocktail sauce.

Quick Update

It's been a while since I've posted here.....

We had a great vacation in Mexico.
We are still trying to sell Eddie's house.
I still go to my boring job every day.
Eddie's son Christopher graduated from college.
Eddie's son Nick got laid off from his job.
Eddie's been on the motorcycle alot more since the price of gas is so high.

I've been trying to do Weight Watchers for a little over a month now. That week in Mexico in a bikini was enlightening. But, I am about 9 pounds lighter as of today.
