 I had lots of fun hanging out with my sister this week. I get her for a few days several times a year and one time is usually in the summer. She is a busy girl with her dance and school, so I take the few days that I can get. We took full advantage of our time together and had lots of fun, but I had to take her home eventually. On the way back to mom’s, we stopped at the Cracker Barrel for lunch. Have you ever been there? It’s been years since I’ve been there and we ended up spending nearly two hours walking around the shop.  That place is trouble if you’re not careful. So much fun stuff! I did end up getting something that I’ve been trying to find for a while. I got a brand new cast iron skillet! (Yes, I do have a big slight obsession with cast iron cookware but I did need a smaller size, I swear!)

Well, as soon as I got home, I had to put my new toy to a good use! I am such a sucker for scallops… I’m a sucker for any seafood really but scallops are special. I can’t explain it, it’s just love!

I couldn’t think of a better way to “welcome” my new skillet than making one of my favorite classic dishes. It’s so easy and fast, you can enjoy it any day. Scampi can be perfect for a fun family pasta night or a romantic candle light dinner. It’s a classic and never disappoints!

Feel free to be wild and make shrimp and scallops together! Yum!

  1. Oh wow…this looks insanely good! I haven’t had scallops in a while, I think I need to rectify that!

  2. Another lovely recipe. Thank you. Glad you had a nice visit with your sister.

  3. I’m not the biggest fan of scampi but I have to say that looks really good!

  4. I don’t think there is a seafood I don’t like. I agree with your cast iron fetish — I have a Griswold and it is magnificent. We take it with us when we travel. We have our special kitchen item containers when we vacation. The containers take up more room than our clothes :-) I’ve set my priorities.

    • I totally see myself bringing my cookware when I travel. Every time I try to cook in any other kitchen then my own, I get frustrated with the cookware. I’ll have to bring my own next time!
      Thank you, Marisa :)

  5. “Scampi with Scallops” a winner anywhere with me specially with scallops…. Yes;-)
