I'm not surprised either, because you mentioned a desire to try pho (pronounced fa) a little while ago.

I haven't bee quite brave enough to try it yet. I think I'll wait until it's a cold and wet afternoon. Somehow in a situation like that, it seems like it would be less of a cultural leap.

What do you call the stuff in the bowl?, looks like pho from here.

Sea Scallops.

I normally buy the Bay kind mainly used as an ingredient in the fishy version of a dish that was created and named using the first part of my wife's name and the last part of my own.

We did use Sea Scallops once but altogether, with everything else, there wasn't really a difference so stuck with the cheaper Bay kind.

I bought some Sea Scallops alongside the bargain Ham and Rib Roasts in Superstore's 4 day special.

Had them at lunchtime today, just quickly fried in garlic and butter.

Heavenly. Should have bought more than one tray.

I don't think we those out here. We only have the proper ones.

I think scallops would definitely be on my death-row last-meal tray. 6 or 12 even... oh yes.
