Weeknight meals can get extremely boring, especially when you’re trying to whip things up really fast.
The husband has totally caught onto my love notes. He was pleasantly surprised last week when he found a pair of oversized glasses staring back at him from his rearview mirror with wobbly eyes and the words “I’ll Always Watch Your Back.” I left him a Key to my Heart, and a SweetHearts love letter, among other surprises. I think I enjoy the surprises a lot more than he does. But it’s all in good fun! Tomorrow is the last day, and I’ll be whipping up a delicious dinner for two – candle light, optional.
Bacon-Wrapped Sea Scallops
Ingredients10 slices Turkey Bacon, not cooked 10 Sea Scallops Lemon Pepper, to taste Sea Salt, to taste Toothpicks Cooking Spray
DirectionsTurn your oven onto the broil setting (I set mine for 500 degrees). Carefully wrap each sea scallop with one slice of turkey bacon and use a toothpick to keep it together. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and place the wrapped scallops on the sheet. Sprinkle with Lemon Pepper and Sea Salt (I’d used the sea salt very liberally). Broil for 6 minutes, then flip the wrapped scallops over and broil for an additional 6 minutes. Remove toothpicks before serving.
