Mmmmmm! Doesn’t this look good? My husband made this for dinner last night. Baked scallops with some butter and parsley flakes. It only took 5 mins to prepare and 20 mins to bake. He also made acorn squash with a hint of brown sugar and butter, so soft and yummy. While the oven was hot he baked fresh sweet potatoes too! Such a great and healthy meal. Did I ever tell you who the real cook is in our family? I am the baker!
