Papa's Picnic

When I said "Happy Fathers Day" he replied "Everyday is happy with you".  We cherish all of our time together, including our meals and outdoor picnics.  Today's platter features Pesto Scallops, Millet with Local Vegetables and Apple Muffins.  

We beat the rain, staying close to home and sticking close to a shelter where we could run if the rain began.

Millet is a whole grain and gluten free.  I buy it at the local Mountain People's Co-op.  For 2 servings, I cooked 1/4 cup grain in low sodium chicken broth for about 30 minutes.  I sauteed local squash, carrots, cauliflower and garlic scapes separately, then mixed them together before chilling.  That's Deberry Farm lettuce as the base.

I sauteed the scallops, 4 minutes per side, in pesto.


(Serves 4)

1 cup arugula spinach mix (stemmed removed)
1 garlic scape
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
Process in food processor.

My apple muffin recipes were posted earlier this week.  

The weather cooperated for our picnic, but not for swimming.  Chestnut Ridge Park in Monongalia County is about 15 miles from home and full of fun things to do.

Happy Fathers Day!
