I wanted to do a post about MH17 and the devastating situation in Gaza because I have strong opinions on both..I drafted quite a long one but I decided not to publish it because I don't want to make people sad when they read my blog.

There's so much sadness and horrible things going on right now...I want to say condolences to the family and friends of the passengers on board MH17.May the parties who are responsible for the shoot out be brought to justice!

And for what's happening in Gaza,know that a lot of people are praying for the Palestinians and collecting funds for them.What Israel did is horrible.It's been going on for years.May those responsible for the deaths of so many civilians in Palestin,to rot in hell.

In the early week of fasting month,the boyfriend and I,along with his sister Qeema went to buy groceries because we wanted to cook instead of buying food for iftar.
Lots of scallops!
Since Razin and I have had scallops before,we wanted to try and cook them ourselves.Fresh scallops are hard to find in supermarkets so we had to make do with frozen ones but they were still very good!

It was very easy to sear them.Razin's bestie Aie who came over joined us to eat it as well.:)
Seared scallops
Frozen/fresh scallops
Olive Oil
Salt and pepper

  • Heat up some butter and olive oil in a pan.
  • Drain your defrost scallops,if you're using frozen ones.
  • Use a kitchen towel to pat the scallops dry.If it's a bit wet,it won't sear well!
  • Season with a little salt & pepper.
  • Sear scallops in the pan until it's golden brown on both sides.
  • Serve!

With a side salad
It's really simple and seared scallops taste realllly good!If you want the occasional splurge,buy some scallops and cook them with your loved ones.So yummy!
