Project Mojo – Centerline Lyrics

June 24th, 2016 No comments

JetBlue jumping off runway nine
Climbing east on the last red eye
One mind’s crossed, another dreams
But nothing’s ever as it seems

Lightning spikes the midnight sky
A heartland pierced with a hundred lies
Thunder feared but never heard
Our feelings tossed in a gale of words

Sometimes right, often wrong
Often lost, but sometimes found
We fell in love and fell out again

Wings without wind,
Love without sin
Never looking back behind
Racing down the centerline

Airbus floats into a misty dawn
A final approach to a coming down
Boston Harbor blooms into view
Three thousand miles away from you.

Sometimes right, often wrong
Often lost, but sometimes found
We fell in love and fell out again

Wings without wind,
Love without sin
Never looking back behind
Racing down the centerline

Saturn V Seared Scallops

June 21st, 2016 No comments

This was the very first dish we prepared on our permanent Rocket Stove.

Pre heat cast iron skillet:

Add just enough olive oil to coat bottom of skillet. Once oil is hot (it will shimmer or test with a pinch of breading – it will sizzle), place breaded scallops in skillet and brown on both sides.

Remove skillet from rocket stove and squeeze lemon over scallops.

Top scallops with Parmesan cheese.

Cover and allow cheese to melt.

Served with Grilled asparagus:

Saturn V Seared Scallops

Yields 2-3 servings

1 lb. Sea Scallops

1/2C Bread Crumbs (we used seasoned, but could use plain)

Olive Oil

1 Lemon, halved (or quartered for easier handling)

1/4C Grated Parmesan Cheese

1 bundle asparagus, grilled

1 bottle White Wine (we recommend Sterling Chardonnay, feel free to adjust qty)

Pre heat cast iron skillet. While skillet is heating, bread scallops. Add just enough olive oil to coat bottom of skillet. Once oil is hot, place breaded scallops in skillet and brown on both sides.

Remove skillet from rocket stove and squeeze lemon over scallops. Sprinkle scallops with Parmesan cheese. Cover skillet to allow cheese to melt.

Divide scallops among serving plates, spooning remainder of melted cheese mixture over scallops. Serve with a side of grilled asparagus or vegetable of your choice and white wine.

ENJOY!
