Meaty Monday...Stuffed Clams and Stuffed Scallops

I love the fact that it's 7:20 in the evening and the sun is still out!  It's such a great feeling to know there are still a couple of hours of daylight left when I get home from work!  To me that's worth losing an hour of sleep.

The weather was perfect today too.  It was 75 degrees when I left work this evening.  I came home today and took Izzy for a walk around the neighborhood, and I didn't feel the least bit rushed to get back to the house to start dinner.  I feel like I still have time left in the day to enjoy.  That's such a great feeling!

Dinner tonight was super easy.  Publix offers the most amazing Stuffed Clams and Stuffed Scallops.  They're on sale 4 for $5 through tomorrow.  So they're not only delicious but they're cheap. ;)  If you like crab cakes, you'll love these and even if you don't like crab cakes, you'll love these.  Luke doesn't like crab cakes very much, but he LOVES these.

You can find them in the fresh market section (the fish counter) of the store.  The cooking instructions are printed on the price label.

To cook the stuffed clams and the stuffed scallops, you preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Place the stuffed clams and/or stuffed scallops on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 18 - 20 minutes.  Then they're ready to serve!


The green beans:

1 lb. of fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 garlic clove, minced

First, blanch the green beans (in a pot of water, bring the green beans to a boil, remove from heat as soon as they start to boil and use a slotted spoon to put the green beans into a bowl of ice water).  Pour 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil into a pan over medium heat.  Then add the cooled green beans to the pan.  Add the salt and pepper and toss the green beans to make sure they're all coated with the EVOO, salt and pepper.  Then add the minced garlic and cook for a few more minutes.


Don't forget to run over to Publix before Wednesday to grab your stuffed clams and/or stuffed scallops!!! :)
