Scallops on Creamy Leeks

On my quest to do all of my favorite things in one weekend while I could still walk, we made a Friday night stop at our local Whole Foods for 5 after 5.

While walking around the store sipping our wine and snacking on our apps, I noticed a display of amazing scallops that were on sale! Remembering a food blog I had recently read..I decided it was time for my first attempt at scallops... and I'd say quite a successful first attempt!!

The leeks in this dish turned out sooo good and the thing that made them creamy was just regular milk (not cream!) , In this case it was skim milk and these leeks were the perfect consistency. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the scallop/wine sauce along with the creamy leeks were fabulous. yum yum yum. Rob declared that he isnt even sure why we ever bother eating out... what a nice boy :)

Here are some pics!
