So this weeks theme is all about trying something new. Something we’ve never made before, something we would like to experiment with. So let new cooking adventures consume your Sunday!!! Grab a cup of coffee and dive into new ventures in the kitchen this week! This fabulous event is hosted by The Foodie Army Wife. Thanks for hosting such a daring event Conni!!
Besides once you see what I’ve chosen your going to want to check out my recipe, one because it rocked and two because, well I despise anything fishy. I vowed to never cook anything sea worthy in my kitchen. Like ever. Never. However………I did it. I’m not sure what made me choose a seafood dish, there are plenty of things I have yet to try. Baking a cheesecake for example, or making Polenta, or how about a simple coffee cake, I’ve never made any of those, I’ve never even made a Prime Rib or Beef Tenderloin yet! Gosh the more I write this the more I wonder why I chose a fishy smelly dish!
Oh yes that’s right, my husband. He loves Scallops and I love making him happy. I love making him things he loves. I knew I wouldn’t eat them and I was afraid it would smell up my kitchen, or worse even, my whole house!! AH! However when my mom and I passed the “Fish” department at the local Meat store down the street (our new favorite place since moving) I couldn’t help but grab a package of scallops. Mom promised me that they wouldn’t smell up my whole kitchen. I knew my mother-in-law was coming for dinner this week so I planned it around that and now had 3 people I could feed them too (luckily my sister is on my side when it comes to smelly yucky fish items!). I went on the search for a Scallop recipe that would be easy yet good, how was I to know since I don’t even like them you ask??? I didn’t……I went with my mom’s opinion on baking them in a breadcrumb mixture. Not only a breadcrumb mixture but when I read the recipe and realized the only thing I didn’t have in my kitchen was the actual breadcrumbs, I decided to make my own!! I used a handful of whole wheat saltine crackers and Italian seasoning and popped them right in the food processor and wala……..instant breadcrumbs!!! Yay me!

They were a hit!! I have no clue, however all three of my taste testers swore up and down that they were delicious and the perfect appetizer dish! I loved that I was able to make my own breadcrumbs in a scramble too! Let’s see what everyone else tried!!!
