Recently it was the wife’s birthday. She loves scallops, and although I worked until 7 as it was during the week, I knew I had to make some of these tasty morsels for her. I paired it with a creamy roasted garlic sauce, which is so good on it’s own, it can be a nice pasta sauce!
Razor clamming is a Northwest tradition. And while I’m not a native of the PNW, I do love clamming. There’s something rewarding about going out to the beach when it’s cold, windy, and possibly rainy then digging in the sand to unearth one of the best tasting shellfish around.
Recently I purchased a sweet meat squash at the produce stand I frequent. Never had this type of squash before. The woman there told me it’s like a cross between a golden delicious and a delicata, both of which I haven’t had either. Basically it’s sweeter and more flavorful than butternut and acorn, the two squash varieties I know well. For $2 I couldn’t go wrong, plus it was a biggie too. She was definitely right, so I turned this sweet meat into a soup.
