Seafood Saturday

Hey everyone!  Hope you have all had as lovely of a Saturday as we have 🙂

After I “saw” you last, I went on my merry way to get the grocery shopping done, can’t wait for my meal planning post to come veryyyy soon!

Then I whipped up a quick Greek Salad before picking up JMU bestie Laura from the train station 🙂

  • red leaf lettuce
  • cucumber
  • tomato
  • feta
  • hummus
  • balsamic vinegar
  • black pepper
  • oregano

So fresh and delicious!

We def didn’t go for chocolate Italian water ice round 2 afterwards either… 😉

After that we headed down to see JMU bestie’s new twin boys!  (fyi, there are 4 girls you will hear me refer to as “JMU besties” as they are my main college homegirls!)

Kristine (Mommy) and Grant (baby #1)

Laura and Cole (baby #2)

These boys are absolutely precious!  And so teeny, omg, I love them so much already 😀

I held one too, and if you knew me you would know that that was a very big deal! 

I think The Man may be worried that I’m getting “baby fever” but no worries friends, I think we have some other important things to take care of before all that happens 😉

Grandma was there too so us ladies had a fabulous time just sitting around with the lil’ boys and talkin’ away!

The men did “man stuff” outside obvi, building a gazebo for their back patio.

Sneak attack through the screen door 😛

After a wonderful afternoon we headed back to take Laura to the train station to return home, can’t wait already for her to be back for our Cinco de Mayo par-tayyyyy!

The Man and I must have not gotten enough of our seafood “fix” last night and knew that it had to happen for dinner again tonight (I told you our menu changes as the temps get warmer!)

We stopped by a local seafood market for a few grab-n-go items 🙂

Upon arriving home it was cocktail hour though, a glass of wine was just calling my name (shocker…)

I also prepped up a quick cheese platter with one of today’s purchases

With some grapes to go with, paired wonderfully if I may say so me-self.

Then it was onto the seafood!

Steamed Shrimp w/ Old Bay

Stuffed Clams – whoa good!

Baked Scallops

Which I made myself from the market’s fresh scallops.

  • bread crumb seasoned w/ salt, black pepper, chili powder & old bay
  • plain almond milk
  • fresh lemon juice

Dipped first into the almond milk, then into the bread crumb mixture and placed into a glass baking dish coated with cooking spray.  Topped with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a small pat of butter.

Baked at 425F for about 8 minutes or until done, turned once during baking.

Fail proof recipe, these were the best dish of the night!

Steamed Broccoli w/ fresh lemon juice

Seafood dinner essential if you ask me?!

Well we have a movie on the agenda after the busy day today, so time for me to run… 😛

But before I go, don’t forget that you have 2 more days to enter the ThrivNP giveaway

Have a great night everyone 😀
