European Egg Drop Soup

Yum
As the cold season starts to finally let up, I complete my final delicious soup until the months of fall. I have never been a big fan of eating soup on hot summer days, the time of year just doesn't give me that craving for something warm and hearty to put into my stomach. As I've mentioned before soups where always a popular choice in my household growing up, not only are they filling but you can always accompany them with a sandwich or have them as a starter to any meal.

Make sure that you use at least a 5 quart pot when preparing the soup, I have chosen to use spinach in the soup but kale or collard work just as well and the pasta can be any from elbow, bowtie or ditalini. If you have the time you can make your own chicken broth or just get a box of low sodium chicken broth from your local grocers. You will need to finely chop the vegetables so if you have a chopper at home, this would be ideal especially to get the onion cut up.

Seasoned Sea Scallops

Yum
Who doesn't enjoy fresh baby scallops, well not all people but I have always been a big fan of any type of seafood, since a very young age. My family was never huge fans of having sweets to finish a meal, we would all enjoy some kind of seafood dish to end your entree on all special occasions. This is not to say there where not sweets for guests but the main core of the family always pined for what seafood my mom or dad had prepared this time, sometimes their was more then one.

Sea scallops can be made in a variety of ways, from on a skillet to baked or broiled, some people even try to poach scallops. I love to bake any type of creature from the water, not only does it leave your home smelling the same but it is always much healthier option for us. You will require a baking pan covered with parchment paper and be sure to use the spices that tickle your taste buds if you don't enjoy any of the ones below. Seasoned bread crumbs add an extra dose of flavour to your dish.
