That's What Friends Are For!!!

Yesterday I was having one of those days where I just needed a helping hand. A very close friend of mines came over to the rescue without even me asking. She asked if she could cook which was fine with me. Normally, I would say no I'll cook but with a pounding headache and my precious 3 month old demanding my attention I was grateful. I had some sea scallops in the frig and also some chicken. She choose the scallops which I was happy with. She took the baby into the kitchen with her as I headed to my room for just a little rest to get rid of my headache. To my surprise I was called down maybe an hour later to something delicious.

Seared Scallops and Indian Spiced Spinach Penne Pasta

She seared the scallops in butter and simply seasoned with salt and pepper. They were delicate and yummy! As for the pasta, she use a penne pasta* I bought from Trader Joes and tossed with spinach*, garlic*, some vegetable curry (I get from my local Asian market), some extra virgin olive oil, butter*, salt & pepper and grated parm cheese.

Everything was delish, and I so appreciated this little break. Thanks Nina!! Love ya!
