Orzo Risotto with Seared Scallops and Tomatoes.

... "With James and the dogs out of town again until Wednesday night - the house was cold and empty. I needed to cook for someone. So, I asked my neighbor, Pat Morelli's mom, Fran ... what she wanted for dinner. She said scallops ... so I rushed to the international supermarket to get the ingredients for ...

Orzo Risotto with Seared Scallops and Tomatoes: Sea Scallops. S & P. OO. Garlic. Cherry Tomatoes. Capers. Orzo. Shallot. Oregano. Chardonnay. Water. US Butter. Parsley.

It's so hard to cook for two. My parents always taught me to cook for a party of eight with leftovers ... well, I succeeded. As I presented a plate to Fran, her eyes lit up and smiled. She grabbed a vintage and chilled bottle chardonnay and graciously opened it. We both sat down to dinner and conversed about the 'good old times.' As we both raised our glasses to toast to celebrate life ... I did my usual 'side-look' and and grinned. Food always brings friends together. Too bad that James is in SJC (San Jose, CA) not enjoying himself. Too bad, too sad ... more food for me." /closes my eyes and enjoys the finer things in life in a simplistic way
