Sea Scallop Salad (Saturday, May 22, 2010)

We started off the evening with appetizers of cheese, bread, hummus, tzatziki, cherries, and olives - what a beautiful variety of food.  The bread was from Atwater's in Belvedere Square near Mary Lou's (Ethan's mom and my mother-in-law).

For dinner we had a seared sea scallop salad with bacon, avocado, cherry tomatoes and a mustard vinaigrette.

For dessert we had fresh coconut.  I saw some fresh coconut in the grocery store months ago and we thought it would be fun to drink the juice au naturel.  Little did I know that it's a complete pain to break the coconut apart without making a complete mess.  This time, Ethan bought a green coconut, thinking it would be easier to drink, but it was just as difficult.  The coconut milk was really good and sweet but who actually wants to go through all the trouble for a few sips of juice?  If it takes, a hammer, screw driver, AND a knife to eat dessert, it's just not worth it...for me. 

For more dessert, Mary Lou picked up some mini cupcakes that were so good and pretty too!  The flavors included coconut and lemon.
