Food Adventures

Oh man. I don’t know how I didn’t know about this before, but My Fridge Food is my new favorite website. My life has largely revolved around food for the last week or so (making it, eating it, creating funny shapes on my plate with it), and in the midst of my usual quest for recipes on Pinterest I came across this site.

You can pick which foods you have on hand and it’ll give you recipes based on what’s in your fridge. Many a night I’ve stood in front of my dwindling grocery supply wishing there was something I could make with tuna, potatoes and captain crunch. Those nights usually ended in Domino’s, and will probably continue to. But I love the idea of being able to pick the potential ingredients and have a recipe given to me.

Raw scallops

Excited about my scallops

Continuing with my food-filled week, I started in on my goal of making foods I haven’t made before. I was wandering through whole foods and saw the scallops so I figured why not.

Scallops in the pan

Oops.. smoke galore

I may have inadvertently smoked up the entire kitchen in the process, but the scallops wound up being delicious. Smoke aside, they were also super easy. I’m loving being home and able to cook stuff like scallops because they tend not to fit so well into the college student budget.

Scallops with a side salad

All done

In the end they came out great! I served them (to myself) with a side salad of baby spinach and some french bread. I finished it off with some tiramisu from Whole Foods which I ate in my pajamas in front of an episode 30 rock. Totally channeling my inner Liz Lemon since graduating, right down to the treadmill/exercise aversion.
