I have decided…. scallops are my favorite meat (if seafood counts as a meat, which I think it does…. but that is up for debate!). I had been thinking about scallops all day long (in case you can’t tell, Mondays are "fish day" in our house) and when Future Husband came home, he mentioned that he wanted scallops, too!
It was fate. Very delicious fate.
To me, the perfect scallop dish requires butter, lemon, pepper, parsley, and asparagus. So, that is what we had for dinner. 🙂
We stir fried 0.5 pound of bay scallops in the wok with about 1/2 tablespoon of butter, 1 tablespoon pepper, 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley, and two or three tablespoons of lemon juice.
On the side, we had brown rice and steamed asparagus.
Sad Gym-Time News
I was on the elliptical when I saw Obama’s grandmother had passed away from cancer…. on the eve of the election! It broke my heart. Whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, isn’t that just the saddest news you’ve ever heard? That just goes to show…. death waits for nothing, not even the presidential election. Treat each day like it’s your last, and love your family and friends like there’s no tomorrow!
That was a rather gloomy introduction to my workout summary, but otherwise it was a very nice experience. I did 20 minutes on the elliptical, 10 on the stationary bike, and lifted weights for some arm strength-training (sleeveless wedding dress, sleeveless wedding dress!!).
Here are my statistics:
- Duration: 42 minutes

Other Snacks of the Day
Standing in line at the grocery store, my blood sugar started to go haywire, so I ate a Z-Bar. 🙂
Before the gym, I had a slice of WW toast with Laughing Cow.
And around 3, I had a pear. Delish!
I’ve got to go quiz Future Husband for his BIG acupuncture midterm. Wish him luck!
What is your favorite type of seafood? I’d say tilapia runs a close second to scallops, because it is always so affordable and such a great base flavor for so many different cooking methods.
